Basset Hounds are a sweet, gentle dog, originally meant to hunt rabbits and hare. They will enjoy the company of most everyone, including children and other pets. They do tend to drool quite a bit and make a mess of drinking, so they're not the best pets for a tidy household. They can also be stubborn and difficult to housetrain and need early obedience training.
