Don't be put off by what some people will say. For starters she's female and as a general rule, female Bassets don't have quite the same amount of 'furnishings' as males do. Further, below is our Can.Ch. Turberville Woodpacker who we had imported to us from the UK when we lived in Canada. He gained his Canadian title before eventually returning to the UK with us when we came back 'home'. He wasn't over-endowed with wrinkling but was a sensible type - more in line with the revised British Breed Standard after, having become very exaggerated here, it was felt time to cut out 'excesses'. Woody was behind pretty much all our later hounds and believe you me, was ALL Basset.


I hope this loads!

ps What's going on with her jaw (one of the photos here)?

Do you have her official (AKC) registration papers, and her pedigree? Personally, and having seen the results of some DNA testing on dogs whose background was KNOWN, I'd save your money re having your girl DNA tested. Did you buy her from a well-known breeder? I don't see, unless you are intending to breed from her, why you need to worry about her being 100% purebred - especially just because somebody (another well-known breeder?) suggests otherwise. The European Basset often has way more furnishings than others and this individual may well have one of those?

Below is a group of those we brought back from Canada with us, at the end of a walk, Woody sitting just above our bicolour boy Ben (Verulam Harvester), who was one of his sons.
