About the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen

These dogs have been used over medium-sized areas, especially when hunting rabbits, although other game are just as vulnerable.

Petit Basset Griffon Vendeens are brave and enthusiastic hunters that love to work in the bramble and scrub. They have the character of a docile little dog, but are always willing and passionate.
