The Basset Hound is available on our website in the form of a gorgeous cushion or a sophisticated dog mug. Our website is full of a variety of dog breeds, with this hound having the stronger features.
According to Wikipedia, this lovely dog is a short-legged breed of dog in the hound family. The basset is a scent-hound that was originally bred for the purpose of hunting hare as their sense of smell and ability to ground-scent is second only to the Bloodhound. These dogs are one of six recognised “basset”-type breeds in France. The name ‘basset’ is derived from the French word ‘bas’ meaning ‘low’, with the attenuating suffix – ‘et’ – together meaning ‘rather low’.
These cushions and mugs are perfect for any gift to someone you know who loves dogs, or even as a special treat for yourself! The country aesthetic on the cushions and with Christine Varley’s artwork on both the cushions and the mugs, these will surely bring an artistic atmosphere to any home.
