Basset Griffon Vendeen (Petit)

Temperament

Petit Basset Griffon Vendeens have a curious and lively temperament. They will be quick to alert you of any guests and will also need to run around checking out every corner of any room they enter. These are friendly dogs who certainly have a lot more bark than bite and will be quick to lick the hands of anyone who will pay them attention. That said they are attention seekers and will dislike being ignored which could make them bored and prone to dig up your garden.
