Basset Hounds were bred to have short legs so that their large, sensitive noses would be close to the ground, and to have long ears that would stir up the leaves and undergrowth and stimulate scents. And the white tip of their tail? So it could be seen when their short bodies disappeared in the bush!
Nellie took her photo shoot very seriously, nothing was to be rushed and we were to give her the respect that a dog of her high breeding and pedigree deserved! What a great temperament this dog has, she let her 3 humans climb all over her and still retained her dignity. Check out Nellie on the Pawtraits page
