During the early 19th century the breed nearly became extinct with declining popularity in hunting. However, the breed was saved and revived by the work of Alain Bourbon. The Basset Bleu de Gascogne descended directly from the old breed of Grand Bleu de Gascogne. The exact origin of the breed is debated, one theory is that it is a cross of the Grand Bleu with the Saintongeois Basset, another theory is that the Basset Bleu is a natural mutation of the Grand combined with selective breeding for shorter legs in order to slow down the breed.
The BBDG does not require much grooming. Brushing once a week is good enough for them. A good diet will also help keep the shedding down and a full healthy coat as this breed is a short haired breed.
The BBDG os below 15 inches at the shoulder and weighs 40-50 lbs typically. This breed is considered a medium sized dog.
