Basset Fauve de Bretagne |France|

Basset Fauve de Bretagne |France|

The Basset Fauve de Bretagne is believed to have developed from the old French Fauve hounds, of which there were four types, divided by coat color and texture. Today only one survives, the Griffon Fauve de Bretagne. The Basset Fauve de Bretagne was probably created by breeding the smallest Griffons together, although no records exist. By the nineteenth century, however, there were packs of the small, courageous hounds living throughout France. In the twentieth century, the Basset Fauve de Bretagne was influenced by Basset Griffon Vendéen to improve its hunting skills, and Red Standard Wire Haired Dachshund improved the color. These are brave, tenacious hounds with superb temperaments that can make wonderful family companions.
