Hi everyone, I'm a newbie on the list and I hope you don't objest to my joining, I have Bassett hound cross, his name is Evan and he is gorgous-so much so he won the best cross breed in Scotland 2003. In spite of being a cross he is very Bassett like and I have a few questions you may be able to help with. Evan is 18 months old and weighs in at 45lb's, he doesn't appear to be over weight to me, but my vet maintains he is to big for his age. I wondered what the average weight for a Basset at this age would be? Many thanks for you help and love your beautiful pictures of all your gorgeous Bassets.
