Bassett Hounds are known for their floppy ears, droopy eyes, and long backs. Their long backs can make them prone to injury, so you need to be careful when picking them up or having them participate in intense physical activities. Bassett Hounds are considered a docile breed and require little grooming or exercise. Quick strolls and time in the yard are good opportunities for these dogs to enjoy some movement breaks and fresh air.  Bassett Hounds are known as a scent hound – hunting by scent than sight – and hunters used to have them track their prey. So these hounds have super-sensitive senses of smell.  That being said, if you prepare dinner or something tasty, expect them to be lurking nearby.
