All Dog Breeds >>Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen
One of many small varieties of the French hounds, the PBGV can be traced to the 16th century and to the Griffon Vendéen, his larger, more powerful ancestor. He was developed to hunt small game such as rabbit and hare over the difficult terrain found in the Vendéen region.
Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen Breed for you ?
Confident, happy and extroverted, the PBGV is best suited to the active, experienced dog owner with older children and a well-fenced yard. The breed is not a couch potato and needs daily exercise – if not, he may express his displease by using his "hound voice" or creating amusing diversions of his own. Although independent, he is still willing to please. If a PBGV possesses the correct harsh coat, he will require a thorough weekly brush out to stay in condition.
