The Basset Hound’s name is derived from the French word “bas”, meaning “low thing”. In 1500 France, they were aiming to develop a slow-moving breed that could be followed on rabbit (and other small game) hunts. Bassets have one of the best senses of smell of all dogs, second to only the Bloodhound and 40 times stronger than a human.

This 11” x 8.5” screen print is part of an on going series of dog breed illustrations inspired by interesting facts and history of different breeds. The first 4 are now available over @doggonestudios, including French Bulldog, German Shepherd, and Labrador Retriever.
