Basset Hound
This aristocratic French hound is an easy keeper with a charming personality.
Height: up to 14 inches at shoulder
Weight: 50 to 65 pounds
Coat: short and smooth
Life span: 10 to 12 years

The Basset was bred for hunting small game such as rabbits and is still used for this purpose in some parts of the country. When he's not on the trail of a bunny, he's a laid-back family friend who loves kids.
