Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen

A demon in the fields, an angel in the home, this passionate hunter needs to be trained from a very early age.

About the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen

They are ideal over medium-sized areas, especially when hunting rabbits with the gun, 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.
