Because what’s better than a basset hound? A basset hound mix of course! It’s like you take all the best traits of each breed and they all get smushed together into a compact basset hound-shaped version. Check these dogs out and then head to your nearest shelter (if you’re in the market for a long-term friend) where you can find some really incredible mixes!
