Interest rockets in Basset Griffon Vendeen!

Basset Griffon Vendeen

Who remembers seeing the gorgeous Basset Griffon Vendeen competing for the Best in Show on the final day of Crufts? The American Cocker Spaniel may have taken the title, but interest in this lovely hairy breed skyrocketed over Crufts weekend...

Frosty, a Grand Basset Griffon Vendeen from the Netherlands, owned by Gwen Huikeshoven and Phil Reid, won the Hound Best in Group title and competed for Best in Show, eventually taking the First Reserve prize. The Your Dog website had more than 30 times the average views on the Basset Griffon Vendeen profile during the weekend, it seems viewers couldn't get enough of this lovely breed!
