Grand Basset Griffon Vendéen
The Grand Basset Griffon Vendeen (GBGV) – pronounced Grahnd Bah-SAY Grif-FON Vahn-DAY-ahn – joins the Hound Group. Bred as a rabbit and hare hunter in France, the GBGV has a great deal of stamina and speed. The GBGV is a laidback, intelligent, friendly pack hound that gets along well with other dogs. These dogs are courageous and passionate workers with a high activity level. They need daily vigorous exercise. The GBGV’s coat is rough and straight, and looks tousled and natural. It does need weekly brushing to prevent it from matting.
