As a Basset Hound enthusiast, I like to keep up with the latest news and information about the breed. I'm also interested in any relevant news about dogs and pets... doesn't have to be just about Basset Hounds.

Assuming others are also interested, I created this page. The purpose is to feature the latest news stories from around the world about Basset Hounds.

But, this is not just a regular news page. Here, you may report your own news and events or comment on the news.

Do you have an important Basset Hound news story that you'd like to share with everyone?

Here are some ideas:

  • share the arrival of your new Basset Hound puppy 
  • announce a rescue fund raising event
  • report canine health news that all dog owners should be aware of.

Please note: We do not accept puppy litter announcements as news.

What would Basset Hound owners find interesting and useful? Here are some more subjects to consider:

  • canine health and care
  • nutrition
  • training
  • breeding
  • ownership
  • rescue
  • adoption
  • or any other relevant topic.
