AKA: Little Griffon Vendeen Basset
Breed Group: Hound Height Male: 14-15 inches
Breed Size: Small Height Female: 12-13 inches
Breed Origin: France Weight: 25-40 pounds
The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen is small in size, but is nevertheless sturdy and robust. The smallest of four rough coated hounds from Venddï¿e, the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen has a rough, long outer coat with a harsh texture, and a dense undercoat. The coloring of the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen is white with patches of color, which include orange, lemon, grizzle, black, or tri-colored. These dogs weigh in at around 25-30 pounds for females and 30-40 pounds for males. In terms of height, the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen reaches around 12-13 inches for females, and 14-15 inches for males.

The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen is a courageous and independent dog, with plenty of character, spirit, and enthusiasm. This is a keen scenthound with a very inquisitive nature, and therefore should always have somewhere safe and secure to play and exercise when he is not on a leash. The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen has bags of energy and needs a fair amount of exercise. He is also a dog that enjoys the affections and companionship of his owners, and is not well suited to those unable to commit time to their pets. The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen is an entertaining and cheerful soul, but his stubborn streak and bossy nature means that he is better suited to those with some experience of dog ownership. Females tend to be the more dominant sex with this breed, and when it comes to training owners need to be positive yet assertive in order to achieve results.

The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen can be very boisterous and mischievous, and this means that you may need to exercise caution around very small children who may inadvertently get knocked over or hurt. However, that said, the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen does get along very well with children as well as with strangers. He should be fine around cats and dogs, if a little bossy, but should not be trusted around smaller animals such as rabbits. The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen loves to dig, which is something to bear in mind when he is left in his secure area, as it may not be as secure as you think! He also loves to bark, and this adds to his watchdog abilities but means that he is not best suited to those looking for a quiet pet.

The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen originates from the Vendee region of France, and is the smallest of four rough coated hounds developed in that particular area. He has a history that can be traced back to the sixteenth century, and was originally bred to hunt rabbits and small game. The breed was registered with the AKC in 1991.
The life expectancy of the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen is around 12-14 years, and there are a number of health problems to look out for with this breed. This includes thyroid problems, luxating patella, cataracts, meningitis, PRA, HD, epilepsy, and heart problems. The parents of the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.
