Basset of Westphalia

Breed history
The Basset de Westphalia is a dog of German origin. This breed was born in the historical region of Westphalia, between the Weser and the Rhine. It would probably have been obtained by crossing the German Brachet with various types of Bassets. The Westphalian Basset was recognized by the German Kennel Club (Verband für das Deutsche Hundewesen) in 1935. It was from this breed that the Swedish Basset, also called Drever, was developed. Today it is relatively rare outside of Germany. The breed was definitively recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) on November 29, 1954.
