The Basset Griffon Vendeen (Petit)
The Basset Griffon Vendeen (Petit)The length of this hound’s breed name has led to it being generally abbreviated to PBGV. Still relatively rare outside the show ring, since being introduced from France in 1969, he has attracted many devotees from other breeds.
Though low to the ground, as denoted by the term ‘Basset’, he is a balanced dog, extremely active and demonstrating soundness on the move. A typical hound, he needs a lot of exercise, and a fair amount of grooming. His happy, extrovert temperament helps make him a breed for the healthy, fun-loving family.
