Alpine Basset

Breed history
The Basset des Alpes is an ancient breed since the ancestors of this dog with a similar appearance were already used by hunters in antiquity. During the first half of the 1880s, he was Crown Prince Rudolf of Habsburg’s favorite hunting dog, so he always took them on his hunts in Turkey and Egypt.

First called Basset des Alpes de l’Erzgebirge, he was recognized by the Austrian umbrella cynological association as the 3rd breed of dog of red (blood research) in 1932. However, it was not until 43 years later that the denomination’s current one, that of Basset des Alpes would be adopted. This is the date on which the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) recognizes the breed definitively. The FCI then reclassifies it (in 1991) among the blood search dogs in group 6.
