Hi all! I have recently aquired a female basset that I have named Clara and I have fallen head over heels in love with the sweet girl. Clara also gave birth to 8 beautiful puppies 10 days ago. I am familiar with bassets and I am also familiar with puppies BUT , could someone give me some charactoristics of newborn basset puppies? I know that they are born with short ears but I am not sure when they start growing longer. I am trying to determine whether or not these 8 babies are basset hounds? I have fabulous homes for them all when the time comes and Clara will be spayed when she is ready. I could use some help and I figured that you all are the perfect experts to ask. Thanks so much!!
