Is the American Pit Bull Terrier / Basset Hound Mix right for you?

Species group:

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The pairing between an American Pit Bull Terrier and a Basset Hound isn't all that common, but you may occasionally encounter this mix in a rescue.

Appearance / health:
While the appearance of mixed breeds can vary, at least some American Pit Bull Terrier / Basset Hound mixes do look like short-legged, long-backed Pit Bulls. Although it's hard to imagine anyone feeling terribly threatened by these cuties, you should always check your local laws to make certain you are allowed to keep so-called pit bull mixes in your area.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's always difficult to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, you're getting a double dose of family loyalty from both the APBT and the Basset parent breeds. However, cute as they look, they still need to be properly socialized and trained. The hound side may encourage them to roam while checking out interesting smells, so you will probably do best if you leash-train your pet.
