We have run into a couple of bigger hounds at the waddles over the years. The first year we had one that was essentially just a double-sized hound - same body proportions, leg shortness, etc., just twice the size on everything. His name was Goomba and he was a red and white. The other one was last year's waddle. He was a very big basset, 100+ lbs., but not an ounce of fat on him - not sure it was 100% basset hound but he fit right in. He made our Layla (65 pound porker that she is) look petite.

Either way, like a couple of others have said - basset houndiness is all in the attitude of the dog, unless you plan on showing the dog it doesn't really matter whether they would be judged to be a hound or not. Monty looks good to me.

He is disporportionate(sorry about the spelling) the legs being a bit longer leaves a lot of air under him the body filled out but the legs make him look tall.Ears are shorter than should be..... but all in all who cares you love him .He is not one to follow the standard but not all do,he may have been poorly bred.Some people think importing gigantic european bassets are cool but sometimes the genes do not mix well. As long as you love him he is perfect as he is,I can see why you were curious though

I don't think this would be specific to Ireland - it could happen to anybody, at any time although if this cropped up from a particular mating of mine (combination) I'd not repeat it! I would just say that there are a lot of people who are not breeding from 'top quality' stock which may just leave the door open for this kind of thing to be more likely to happen? Your boy does have a lovely head (I'd prefer longer leathers) and is 'balanced'. After all, for sure as long as he's happy and healthy and you love him, it doesn't matter - and they all have a fault or two (or more!!).

My most recent litter has the largest variation in size I've ever seen. They will be a year old Jan 25. The smallest, Xena, is currently 35 lbs. The largest, Dexter, is around 80 lbs - and not the least bit fat. He's also over the height limit, he's going to be huge!

Here is Dexter, the huge pup, next to his aunt Deela.

It looks like someone left Deela in the dryer too long! That pic really shows how variable basset sizes are.

Oh, see I thought Deela was small but it's just that she's next to behemoth hound, Dexter! Mr. Pea was on the small size, at his heaviest he maybe weighed 45 lbs. He was not as food crazy as some hounds I've known so I was lucky in not having to watch his weight.

These posts made me laugh. Especially the picture from soundtrack.
All cuties, even if some of them are gigantic.
