Is the Basset Hound / Labrador Retriever Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Basador, Bassador

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 Basset Hound / Labrador Retriever mix is a cross between the pure Basset and the pure Lab, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. While the parent breeds are both hunting dogs, the reality is that this mix between a hound and a retriever can have wildly varying results. The dog will probably have a great personality and enjoy getting outdoors with its human family, but otherwise you can't make many generalizations about this mix.

Appearance / health:
The appearance of the Bassador can vary a great deal. The longer-bodied ones sometimes share the Basset's tendency toward back problems.

Behavior / temperament:
If you understand the personality of both the Lab and the Basset, you'll be ready for anything. For instance, some Basadors may share the hound's love of catching a scent and chasing.
