The Basset Fauvre de Bretagne is the smaller of the two hounds that come from the Brittany area of France in the 1800's. They were achieved by crossing the larger version, the Griffon Fauve de Bretagne, and low-legged hounds from the Vendee area and were originally used for small-game hunting. The earlier versions of the breed probably looked more like terriers than what we know today. Very new breed in Australia.

Intelligent dogs who are hounds through and through. They must be trained to recall as puppies or they will turn a 'deaf ear' on you and come back when it suits them!

Cheerful little dogs who can have minds of their own! They are intelligent, friendly, brave and very active. This breed gets along well with children and other household pets. Not really guard dogs, they will however announce strangers at the door. They are unhappy if kept confined for too long and love to have busy, full lives and to be involved with all family matters.

Grooming- a brush once a week is all they need, and a bath when needed.

Exercise- They need moderate but regular exercise to stay in shape.

Health- For Diet and other general dog health information Health/Nutrition
