Basset hound Description
  The Basset Hound has a large head with a rounded skull and pronounced occiput. The plane of the muzzle is parrallel to the top of the skull. Its skin is loose-fitted and falls in folds on the head. It has very long, velvety ears that should meet beyond the top of the nose. It has sad, brown eyes that show a prominent haw, giving it a kindly expression without harshness. It has a very pronounced dewlap. The chest is very deep and extends in the front of the forelegs. Its paws are big and the hindquarters are round. The coat is shiny, short, and hard.
