As a first time basset hound owner I was wondering if my basset would turn out like this one. Here are two videos 1. 2.

When we bought Charlie, the above video is how I had visioned him to turn out when he got older. Charlie is now 7 mo. old and im still wondering if he will turn out like the one in the video. Any insight on this would be great, as I dont really know what to expect. To me, Charlie does seem small for his age (7 mo. old @ 27 lbs) is this about normal? or is he a runt? :p Here is my dog Charlies photos.

Does Charlie have the "loose skin" of an average basset hound or less? Do bassets get more wrinkles as they get older? Do bassets features develope alot more as they grow?

So many questions I know, but the answers would really be appreciated!!

Bassets come in so many sizes that it's hard to make predictions.

My smallest is Georgia, 6 years, who weighs about 29 lbs. Which is perfect for her.

Charlie, my latest foster failure, is 6 MONTHS and is 42 lbs. Also a perfect weight.

Mikey - this is a bit off topic - but what makes the Harrier so sought after, other than it's rarity?

Does it do better in hunting etc. than some of the other hound groups? The link you gave to the Harrier Club shows some really beuatiful pics of them.

But, I'm still addicted to my bassts!
