Is the Basset Hound / Dachshund Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Basschshund

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 first generation Basschshund is a cross between a pure Basset Hound and a pure Dachshund, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. Although both parent breeds are short-legged scenthounds, this so-called designer mix is probably more commonly done to create an eye-catching pet, rather than a good hunting companion.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, but in this case you can be confident of getting a long-bodied, short-legged hound.

Behavior / health:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the cross of two such closely related types means you can feel confident of getting a friendly, loyal family companion with a decent nose. Sometimes these dogs won't be able to resist giving chase or running down interesting smells, so you may benefit from leash-training your pet.
