Personality

The Grand Basset Griffon Vendeen is a happy-go-lucky dog who loves to be kept active. They are not ideally suited to living in towns; the country life is for them. They can be vocal, stubborn, independent and bold, but they are always willing to please. A secure garden is essential, as they will be off if they get the scent of small game.
