I was told that there are two physical types of bassets, what I call "the Hush Puppy" type and the field-hunting type, which was described to me as lighter of bone and less droopy, for lack of a better word. Is this true? Does anyone have photos of the field-hunting type?

Thanks Belinda. I got Lightning from a breeder in Virginia's hunt country, and everyone who saw him remarked on how beautiful he is. But he's exactly as you described the hunting type and not the more conformationally correct type. (But I can tell you he's no hunter--a rabbit could swat him in the face and he wouldn't notice!) I would love to see bassets hunting. It's got to be quite an impressive sight! I'll check out the photos on the sites you mentioned.
