Hi! I am new here, I currently have 2 bassets, Trooper, and Annabelle. We brought Trooper home from his breeder when he was 10 wks old, he has been playful and loving ever since the first day here. Annabelle we just got a little while ago, she was a year and a half old, her previous owners had 2 other bassets and a newborn child, and they said they just could not keep up with all of them. So anyway we have her she will sometimes come to me no problem, but other times especially if my husband or little boy are within her sight she will not come at all. We have had her for about 3 months, the dogs do stay outside, I go out daily to play with them my little boy goes often and my husband sometimes, we bring them in, but she tends to still kind of shy away from us, and just go hang out by herself. I have noticed though when I let them out to run, she does stay with Trooper, so I am pretty sure they have bonded, but what can I do to bond with her more? I feel so sad for her. Also I have been doing a lot of reading in the past couple of weeks about the breed, but I cannot seem to find the answer to this question, what exactly is the difference in just a regular basset and a appalachian big foot basset, I know there paws are larger but what other than that is different? Just curious.
