The Basset Fauve de Bretagnes can be a bit stubborn when it comes to training, but responds well to gentle and consistent owners who know what they are doing. These dogs are generally friendly to everyone, but will let you know if a stranger comes to the door.

HISTORY

The Basset Fauve de Bretagne was created in France from the remains of the now extinct Grand Fauve de Bretagne, a much larger breed. The dogs of this new breed were hunting dogs in early France. This breed of dog was used by French commoners to help them hunt after the French Revolution. Since they hunted on foot, they needed a slower dog that could track and hunt game but also move at a speed that would allow people to keep up with them. The Basset Fauve de Bretagne is a great breed. If you want to take home one of these special pups, consider adopting them. Check local shelters, look for Basset Fauve de Bretagne rescues in your area, or check breed-specific hound rescues, as they sometimes take in these breeds of dogs and find them forever homes.
