Default Basset or Beagle/Hound?

We've got the lovely (3 months old) Emily. We were told she is a full bred basset hound, both parents bassets, but not KC registered. Managed only to see her mum. Was wondering what are your thoughts on whether it is a basset hound or a mix?

Many thanks

If you have the paperwork, from the official Kennel Club of her country of birth, fine, but if not she could be anything although in my opinion, she would pass as a Basset. Unfortunately, with respect, not a top quality representative of the breed. There is usually a reason why puppies/parents? are not KC Registered. For me, she is rather 'on the leg', her ear-set a little high and ears not 'fine and inward curling, and although the head of a bitch is usually a little less wrinkled and without quite as deep a lip as a good 'un, this could be seen as a 'fault' too. BUT as long as you love her, do her failings really matter? As long as you don't breed from her and get her spayed in due course

Thanks for the reply and the answer. It was just out of curiosity, as we are first time dog owners and even though we read 100x not to get a puppy from a not KC registered place we couldn't resist her. Also her mum (pics attached) was super lovely and we got in love with her too. Its an amazing experience to look after a dog which often times can challenging. But it all pays off at the end when you realise that it has become more than a pet.


Your pup looks super cute!!!!
