Bassador

Basset Hound / Labrador Retriever Hybrid Dogs

Information and Pictures

Ollie the Bassador laying on a tweed couch

"This is Ollie. He is a Basset Hound / Labrador Retriever mix. Ollie’s parents were both purebreds and neither owner wanted the mix so we gave him a home. He is a very loving dog and is wonderful around people, especially the elderly and children. He’s very gentle when he needs to be and volunteers at nursing homes as a pets on wheels dog. On the other hand, he’s also very stubborn and likes things to be on his terms. By this I mean if you want him to come inside, he’ll wait until he’s ready, If you call his name he'll act like he doesn't here you. He likes the water but isn't much of a swimmer with his little legs. He loves to retrieve!! He has a great nose and can smell absolutely everything. He loves walks but also just likes running in the fenced-in yard. His energy level isn't as high as a Lab, but more like a Basset Hound. He also has a basset hound bark! He is very food driven when it comes to training, that’s one way you’re guaranteed he’s going to listen to you. Ollie really doesn't have any bad habits, he’s the best dog I've ever had and I’d recommend his mix to anyone who is looking for a good companion for themselves or another animal."

Description

The Bassador is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Basset Hound and the Labrador Retriever. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

"This is Kash my 8 month old Basset Hound and Labrador Retriever mix. His mother is full blooded Basset and his dad is a chocolate Lab. He is full of energy like a Lab but clumsy like a Basset. He loves kids and attention. He is happy to have a good bone to chew and someone to scratch him behind his big ol long ears."
