Dog of the Day: Dusty the Basset Fauve de Bretagne

Well, we don’t see this very often these days: Dusty is a new breed for us, a Basset Fauve de Bretagne, or a ‘Fawn Brittany basset’. And if you think ‘they don’t look much like the other kind of basset hound!’ you’d be right. It’s hard to tell in this photo, but they actually are a little on the long-and-low side, and they’re very strong scent trackers, so they do share at least some family resemblance.

He’s got a bit of a nose-stripe, like a husky. But with huskies the stripe continues onto the fur. Funny to see it in a dog with single-color fur.
