If #'s 1-10 bother you then you do NOT need to get a hound (of any kind, basset or otherwise). I have seen almost all of the behaviors described above, but I have never seen a Basset growl at a human, unless it was playing. Bassets (along with beagles and Goldens) may be the most gentle and forgiving of all dogs and are not going to bite their owners.

They stink, shed, drool, swallow any object that will fit in their mouths, bark, howl, turn in 100 circles before lying down, think they are lap dogs at 50+ pounds, will jump on furniture, jump on you & your guests and occasionally forget the bathroom is outside. Bassets require a lot of patience from their owners and a lot of unconditional love. They are uniquely suited to giving the unconditional love right back to the owner; however, they are not very patient with their owners.
