Question: Are there two kinds of Basset Fauve de Bretagnes because I see some that have long bodies with very short legs and some that are almost square with very long legs? Paul T., GA
Answer: No, Paul. There is only one kind of Basset Fauve with a written AKC standard describing the perfect specimen of the breed. It states they should be between 12.5 and 15,5 “ when measured at the withers (top of the shoulder). Fauves should only be slightly longer than tall at a ratio of 1:1.2 and are the shortest backed of all the basset breeds. You can read the entire breed standard on the AKC website HERE.
Nosey answers your questions with the assistance of experts in the field. She asked Cindy Hartman, BFdBCA President to assist with this one. Nosey is a retired grand champion living her best life! These are the abbreviations for her titles: GRCH Nisalette d’Aahroo, CM, NW1, NE, NV, NC, NI, NN, AE, AV, AC, AI, NA, SCCN, SEN, SIN, SCA, SEA, SIA, PSD-NE, PSD-NB, PSD-NC, PSD-NS, PSD-AC, PSDAS.
