We are long-term Basset owners and are possibly going to be getting another one. We are using the breeder from our one-year-old pup. Their last litter had two blues and we are considering one of these dogs. I have read conflicting information about the health issues that may occur with the blue coat. Some sound horrid, others not so much. We are used to dogs with health problems as our first dog had fairly squirrely legs and back issues as she got older. Just looking to avoid any issues with skin and the like as this dog ages. Any info and advice is welcome. Thanks and looking forward to hearing your thoughts, Adam and Dawn
