Character


The Basston is a perfect blend of the Basset Hound's docile friendly nature and the Boston Terrier's quirky energy. This breed harnesses the best of both breeds making it a perfect family dog that adapts to all kinds of energy levels. Aggression is almost nonexistent in this breed. Basstons love to greet people and other dogs warmly. The terrier mentality shows through during training making this breed stubborn yet quite smart. Destructive chewing and digging is present during the earlier years. Nipping at humans is minimal.
