Basset Hound x Dogue de Bordeaux

This hybrid is a mix of the Beagle, Basset Hound, and the Dogue de Bordeaux. Because this is such a new breed and the parent breeds vary so much in size, it is hard to determine how the Bebasset Bordeaux will look and behave so it is best to go by the parent breeds’ information. They are good hunters, excellent guard dogs, and are all known for being affectionate, alert, and friendly family companions. As long as they are socialized early, they make good house pets and get along well with other pets and kids. However, you should supervise them with small children.

Bebasset Bordeaux Breed History

To determine the history of the Bebasset Bordeaux, you have to look at the histories of the parent breeds. The Basset Hound originated in France in the 1500s and was used for hunting rabbits and other small game. They are thought to be ancestors of the Basset d’Artois, Basset Normand, and other hounds with short legs. The reason for the Basset Hound’s short legs was to make a scent hound that was slow enough to follow. Some say that they were bred with the Bloodhound as well to make them larger. The breed was accepted by the American Kennel Club in 1935 where it is the 39th most popular breed of dog. The Beagle started out in England in the early 1800s as a rabbit hunter like the Basset Hound. They are thought to have one of the best noses and is also one of the most laid back and friendly. The Beagle is related to the North Country Beagle, the Talbot Hound, Southern Hound, and maybe even the Harrier. According to reports, the Beagle is an ancestor to the hunting packs that used to hunt deer as well. The famous Charlie Brown dog, Snoopy, was a Beagle and made this breed quite famous. In fact, the American Kennel Club has accepted them since 1885 and they are the 5th most popular breed in America. The Dogue de Bordeaux is a giant French dog that was commonly known as the French Mastiff or Bordeaux Bulldog. Made famous in 1989 as the costar in the movie Turner and Hooch with Tom Hanks, this breed has actually been around since the middle ages when they were used for fighting, guarding, and hunting. They were part of the ancient breed of Molossus dogs that includes Pugs, St. Bernards, and Mastiffs but their history is still quite mysterious. The Dogue de Bordeaux is the 63rd most popular breed of dog in America and has been recognized by the American Kennel Club since 2008.

Bebasset Bordeaux Breed Appearance

The Bebasset Bordeaux can have hazel, brown, or amber colored eyes, which may be a bit droopy like the Basset Hound and the Dogue de Bordeaux. Their large nose may be black, brown, or isabella, and their short, dense coat is usually black, brown, red, fawn, white, Isabella, brindle, pied, or any combination of these. Their undercoat is typically weather and waterproof so they can endure the rain but should not be kept outdoors in below freezing weather. Because the three parent breeds vary in size from medium to giant, your Bebasset Bordeaux can be medium or large between 60 and 90 pounds with a large head, muscular legs, and floppy or ears.

Bebasset Bordeaux Breed Maintenance

This breed is easily maintained because of their short, straight fur. Brushing them about once or twice a week with a pin brush or slicker brush should be sufficient. However, you may want to brush them a bit more during shedding season to prevent excessive hair on the furniture and your clothing. You can use a deshedder, if needed, depending on the amount of shedding your dog does. Be sure to check and clean their ears once a week and brush their teeth with a special dog toothpaste to prevent tooth decay. Trim their toenails when necessary, about once a month or whenever you can hear them clicking on the floor.

Bebasset Bordeaux Temperament

Because the Bebasset Bordeaux is part Beagle and Basset Hound, they are extremely lovable and friendly dogs. In fact, even the Dogue de Bordeaux is a gentle and devoted breed and these hybrids are perfect for those with kids and other pets because they are more laid back than most breeds and can tolerate a lot of aggravation. That being said, you should not let anyone aggravate your dog on purpose because even the most laid back dog can snap if they get mad. They may be a bit stubborn when training and will take some extra patience and positive reinforcement to get the best results. 

Bebasset Bordeaux Activity Requirements

This breed can be lazy and they have a tendency to become overweight if they do not get enough exercise. They need at least 45 to 60 minutes of vigorous physical activity per day such as running, playing fetch, playing with other dogs at the dog park, hiking at your local park, swimming, or even agility training, which they are very good at when they want to be. Your Bebasset Bordeaux may need some extra encouragement to get up and moving but once they are up, they are good to go for hours. It is important that they get outdoors several times a day if they are indoor pets and need to get rid of that excess energy or they may get anxious or bored.
