It’s no secret that dogs are man’s — and woman’s — best friend. However, Basset Hounds are one of the most popular of all dog breeds for good reasons.

  1. Thanks to show breeders, I am having to get away from the breed. My first Basset Hound died of Ventricular septal defect at 4. He was always so tired, had a heart murmur, panted constantly and never wanted to eat much. My second died of a combination or Pulmonic stenosis and Pododermatitis at just 4, too. My third Basset Hound suffered from Malassezia dermatitis, Primary seborrhea and Congenital hypotrichosis. I euthanized him at 7 because his entire life was misery. My fourth Basset Hound suffered Black hair follicular dysplasia, Intertrigo, Tuberculosis and Severe combined immunodeficiency. He couldn’t lay on his stomach/chest and had to lay on his side, would whine while breathing, coughed all the time, shook and lost all his muscle tone. He died at 9. My fifth Basset Hound suffered from Basset hound thrombopathia, Mycobacterium avium, Temporomandibular dysplasia/luxation, Ununited anconeal process and Inguinal hernia. He couldn’t sit down, when he coughed he would either whine or scream and had terribly swollen lymph nodes in his groin. We euthanized him at 2 to save him from suffering. My 6th Basset Hound suffered Mast cell tumours, Trichoepithelioma, Pilomatrixoma, Pilomatrixoma, Actinic keratosis (solar keratosis) [he was just one big scaly patch] and Cutaneous haemangioma. He died at 4. My 7th Basset Hound suffered from Non-epitheliotropic lymphoma, Nasal cavity tumours, Lymphosarcoma (malignant lymphoma), Intervertebral disc disease, Discospondylitis, Lysosomal storage disease – neuronal glycoproteinosis (Lafora’s disease) and Cervical vertebral malformation (wobbler syndrome). He died at 6. My 8th and last Basset Hound suffered Entropion (may be associated with ‘diamond eye’), Combined entropion–ectropion (‘diamond eye’), Eversion of the cartilage of the nictitating membrane, Primary glaucoma/goniodysgenesis, Cataract, Generalised progressive retinal atrophy (GPRA), Chondrodystrophy/hypochondroplasia – Accepted as breed standard and Cystine urolithiasis. He died at 7.

  2. I have had five bassets during my lifetime – Max, Oscar, Harvey, Bonnie and now Ruby. We passed Switzerland Bassets last week and couldn’t just walk past I had to call in and see all their bassets what a joy I loved it. Once a basset owner always a basset owner
