DESCRIPTION of a Basset Hound
This is a hound with short legs, with a considerable substance and with numerous qualities. The presence of certain quantity of loose skin is desirable.
HEAD:
The upper part of the snout is almost parallel to the higher line of the skull and is not much longer than the head.
The forehead can be slightly wrinkled as well as the sides of the eyes. The skin of the head is loose enough to wrinkle notably when it leans to the front.
SKULL:
It has a hollow shape, with a medium width on the eyebrow region and it slightly diminishes to the snout.
EYES:
They are dark, but they can be hazel on the hounds of clear color. Its expression is calmed and serious. The red of the mucous of the lower lid is apparent, but with no exaggeration. Clear or yellow eyes are very undesirable.
EARS:
Placed low, just under the line of the eyes. They are long, but not excessively and they are extended longer than the tip of a snout with a correct length.
They are narrowed and well curled to the inside. They are very flexible, fine and with a soft texture.
NECK:
It is muscular, arched, pretty long and with a prominent double chin, but not excessive.
BODY:
Long and deep in its whole extension; the cross and the body have approximately the same height.
TAIL:
It is well placed and it is rather long. It is strong at the root and diminishes gradually. A moderate quantity of rough hair is observed under the tail. When the dog is in movement, the tail is raised and draws a soft curve like the shape of a saber, but it is never curled or raised too high.
FRONT EXTREMITIES:
They are short, powerful and with strong bones. The skin folds in the inner part of the legs.
SHOULDERS:
They are not heavy; the shoulder blades are leaned towards the back.
ELBOWS:
They are not leaded to the inside or the outside, the are next to the sides of the chest.
FOREARM:
The upper part of the forearm is softly leaned to the inside, but not as much as to interrupt the free movement, or to make the front members touch when the dog is standing or in action.
BACK EXTREMITIES:
They are muscular and prominent. They have an almost spherical aspect seen from behind. There can be folds between the hock and the foot. In the back part of the articulation of the hock there can be a light bag as a result of loose skin.
FEET:
Thick, with strong articulations and pads. The front feet can be oriented straight to the front or leaded slightly to the outside part. The weight falls equally on all of the toes and the pads and leave the trace of a good hound.
HAIR:
Straight, short, tight and not too fine. All of the surrounding area is clean with no fringes. The long, soft hair with fringes is highly unacceptable.
COLOR:
It is generally white, black and fire (tricolor) or lemon and white (bicolor), but any of the recognized colors in hounds are acceptable.
SIZE:
The height to the cross goes among 33 and 38 cm and the weight around 15 and 20 kg.
