yo whats up with basset hounds?

Recommended Posts

i think me an my girl are gonna foster a basset hound.

mostly this decision is based on the fact that they look like a hippo and it makes me laugh like crazy every time we see one.

i dont know shit else about them though.

dogs with skin folds like that need to be cleaned extra thoroughly and carefully. they can get infected pretty easily.

I hate my friends Basset hound. The motherfucker does nothing but bark, run around like a retard, and smell like shit. I like most dogs but I've never liked one of these ugly fuckers....`

it depends on the dog beforehand.. i've seen retarded ADD stricken basset hounds, and i've seen ultra chill, ultra cuddly basset hounds. it depends on the amount of attention you give it, and how much room it has to do it's own thing.

any kind of hounds are definatly my favorite kinda dogs... Most of them are pretty layed back once they arent a puppy and wont always annoy you for years and years, but pups are always fun to play with.

 

personally, im not a fan of the low-rider, flappy, foldy dogs like bassets, but we have a beagle, and she's awesome. I'd say go for it!

i think alot of that has to do with the fact that it's sick.

well, all im doing is fostering the thing till it gets adopted, so im not making any long term commitment. and if it howls all rowdy, i got a bark collar for that midget legged motherfucker.

I haven't read much of this thread, so if I'm repeating myself....

 

Basset hounds like to howl, so they're loud. I saw someone already said they need to be cleaned frequently. I've heard they have leg problems more often than not, so it could get expensive. I knew someone who had one, and it was old and loyal, but barked like a retard at nothing. It also dropped ass like a machine. So you'll be able to say "it was the dog" after 3 weeks and probably get away with it.

 

 

*edit: I see the howl thing was mentioned above me.

Wasn't the dog on DOH named Flash?

I had a teacher in college who would bring his Basset Hound to class. When I asked him what his dog does during class, he replied that "he chews gum off the seats and farts."

they are midget bloodhounds.

not necessarily loud, but almost guaranteed.

 

bloodhounds are loud dogs too, but my second one is quiet all the time. it takes hellfire to get him to bark or howl

i had 2 basset hounds growing up. the first one lived until 15 which is apparently insane for the breed, and the other one just turned 12. like most hounds, they are short haired and pretty oily. they can carry quite the oder, but so can almost any dog. both our basset's were never very loud, they would get into the occasional barking fit, but it was nothing i would call excessive. one thing i didnt see anyone mention, is how incredibly stubborn they can be at times, which is either the most frustrating thing or hilarious thing depending on the situation. they will pack the pounds on if you dont walk them, and will sleep all day.

 

super loyal, and very well behaved around kids and strangers. i say go for it.

For whatever reason, I think of "beagle" when I hear "basset hound". Beagles get my vote as dumbest and most annoying dogs, ever. My friend's fiance had one, then he let her get a beagle pup. Now it's going to be double the retarded howl-bark. So fucking grating and annoying.
