Last month my best buddy Hoover passed away. He was a Basset Hound/Beagle mix - but he looked and acted mostly like a basset hound. I'm not ready now, but in a few months I need to find a new buddy. I don't know much about basset hounds except for what I know from living with him for 12 years, and everything I read online about them seems to be the opposite of his personality. He was very loving of me but wanted to kill everybody else, and for that matter anything that made a noise or moved. If I tried to do anything like give him a bath or cut his nails, he'd try to kill me too. Also, him and the cat were mortal enemies. My problem is, I want another Basset Hound, but I also want a friendly social dog...which is what bassets are supposed to be. Has anybody else heard of basset hounds behaving like this? Is it maybe because he was a mix? Or was he just a fluke?
