Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen Dog Facts

Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen Information

A correctly proportioned PBGV is about 50 percent longer than it is tall, enabling it to push its way through dense thickets. It has strong bone and is surprisingly nimble. The gait is free, giving the appearance of a dog that is capable of a full day in the field. The tousled appearance results in part from its rough coat, with long facial furnishings. This, in combination with its thick, shorter undercoat, gives the PBGV ample protection against brambles and the elements. Its expression - alert and friendly - reflects its nature.

Despite its appearance, the PBGV is not a basset hound in a wire coat, but in many ways is more terrier-like in temperament. It is a merry, inquisitive, tough, busy dog, always on the lookout for excitement and fun. It loves to sniff, explore, trail and dig ? a true hunter at heart. Amiable and playful, it is good with children, other dogs and pets, and it is friendly toward strangers. The PBGV is stubborn and independent. It tends to dig and bark.
