Long Ears, Short Legs | Basset Hound | New York

Basset Hounds are adorably goofy looking dogs if you ask me.

The Basset Hound has ears that are longer than its legs. That really does not bode well for a gracefully moving dog like I imagine.

Lots of loose saggy baggy skin all over the body.

Face with skin and jowls hanging loose.

Feet that seem larger than a dog of that stature would require.

Basset Hounds seem to lumber along with more effort that a small dog should require.

This image captures quite a noble look of Basset Hound look as one moves across the show ring.

I think that capturing the photo at just the right moment as the dog is in motion helps create this look.

Photo details: Nikon D300S. Nikon 300mm f/4. Focal length 420mm. ISO 400. 1/2000 sec. f/5.6.
