The foremost use of the Basset Hound in the United States is for the hunting of rabbits.

In trailing ability, the accuracy of his nose makes him second only to the Bloodhound.

In 1935, the Basset Hound Club of America was organized in the United States.

The February 27, 1928 issue of Time magazine carried the picture of a Basset puppy on the cover. The accompanying cover story was a write-up of the 52nd annual dog show of the Westminster Kennel Club at Madison Square Garden as if it were attended and observed by the puppy.

The Basset Hound is a natural hunter and should never be allowed to roam without supervision.

Basset Hounds traditionally hunted in packs, which required a comradely attitude towards other dogs.

The Basset Hound is laid back, sociable, and affectionate. It is a great dog for children and adults of all ages.

When there is nothing better to do, Bassets sleep, and are not destructive when left alone. They turn on to food, but not necessarily to exercise.
