Your question: How big does a basset hound get?

The standard height for a Basset is below 15 inches, but don’t be fooled by their low-slung stature: these are surprisingly hefty dogs, weighing up to 70 pounds. Most people struggle to carry a full-grown adult Basset.

Can a Basset Hound be left alone?

Because they originally were bred as pack dogs, they love to be with their families and also do well with other pets. Bassets hate to be left alone for long periods of time, and may become destructive and howl if left alone for too long. Their distinctive baying bark is loud and travels long distances.
