Basset Griffon Vendeen (Grand)
The Grand Basset Griffon Vendeen (or GBGV for short) is a robust, medium height hound, built slightly longer than they are tall. Consider this a large dog on medium length legs rather than a medium sized dog. The weather resistant coat is rough and shaggy, hiding a solidly built, hefty hound beneath. They are known for the characteristic hair over the eyebrows, beard and moustache, giving them a friendly and happy appearance.
