The Petit Basset Griffon VendÃƒÂ©en is a scent hound developed to hunt small game over the rough and difficult terrain of the VendÃƒÂ©en region. One of the four rough-coated hound breeds from VendÃƒÂ©en, France the Petit Bassett Griffon VendÃƒÂ©en is the smallest. He is bold and vivacious in character, compact, tough and robust in construction. Traced to the 16th century and directly to the Griffon VendÃƒÂ©en. He comes from La Vendee a district in the western coast of France. The VendÃƒÂ©en's were directly bred from the white Southern Hound and rough-coated dogs from Italy.
The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen is still capable of tracking small game, but is most usually kept as a companion animal.
His name means Petit - small, Basset - low to the ground, Griffon - rough or wire coated and VendÃƒÂ©en - the area of origination.
