Top 10 Images of Funny Basset Hounds



My next door neighbour’s dog is one of the naughtiest dogs I have even known! It chews anything, raids the outside bin at least once a day and humps everything it can get its paws on! But the only question on my mind is this: Is it just my neighbour’s dog being a bit daft or are all basset hounds silly! Well, it seems it might be the latter of those two things…

  2. I love number six and number one. I would really like to know what that dog in the pots was thinking when he decided to lay there and I would like to see it getting into them. I would love to have a basset. I have a stray dog that was I think part basset and beagle. I loved him so very much. He had the face of an angel and the heart of one too. I had to put him to sleep.

  3. thank you, I am trying to bring people something interesting as well as cool to look at. Maybe that might brings some new fans to the fold. (but I am more than happy with the ones I have)

  4. *LOL* It takes some for a fully qualified dog trainer to tell you the dog is stubborn. And I do several dog posts! The reason I don’t to more is that people prefer cats more than dogs. (on the internet anyway)

  5. My kids have a dog that is a Basset Hound/Dachshund/Shepherd mix. She is however predominantly Basset. She is very affectionate and usually social. She is VERY stubborn, however. At obedience school her instructor with over 20 years experience said she was one of the most stubborn dogs she has ever seen. Taking her for a walk is always an adventure. I am going to email you her picture so you can see just how beautiful she is. Love the fact that dogs are the topic of a post. I think they deserve equal time as cats maybe more….

  6. Whenever a pair of my daughter’s panties were discovered in a basket on the floor, he ran off with them and tried to shove his head in so he could walk around with them on. Crazy dog! He’d behave like he was trying to make us laugh, which of course, bassets do!

  7. I find most intelligent dogs are stubborn and independent at times. That’s ok with me. Love the pics and captions. Learned and laughed. 🙂

  8. Love #1 and #6 – they are hilarious. #1 knows how much room it takes and will add and addition whenever necessary. #6 has that “hang dog look” most bassets have, this one has it in spades. We had a kid’s tv show in the 50’s and they added a basset hound as a mascot. They had a contest to name the dog – the winner was NoMotion. That was a play on a hydroplane group who called their boats SloMotion 4 and SloMotion 5.

  9. Ha! You should be so lucky to see me with basset ears! Don’t make me put some on your profile pic for you. Then we’ll see who will laugh! Muwhahahahah! 😉

  10. My old basset hound used to love to wear little girls frilly pink panties on his head. He also loved to walk across the “Barbie Game” board and gather all the game pieces up between his toes, then lie across the board and dare you to play without him. Gotta’ love them!

  11. Whahahaha! Loved your captions! Sherlock Holmes is the best and that last one… looks a bit like me when I really don’t feel like doing anything…hahahahaha!
    Great post Russell and thanks for sharing. 😀 *hugs*
