Bassets are hound dogs and believe me when I tell you that hounds can be very stong willed and active. They were trained to hunt and make decisions on there own and unless you have the patience and persistence to train them, they are not always a good choice.

You should do some digging on what types of dogs fit your lifestyle. There are a lot of sites that give you ideas. Here are a few:

If you do a google search on "choosing dog breeds", you'll find a lot of sites

Hey, I want a basset!!! But, I'm glad you realize that bassets aren't a toy breed...in fact, they're huge dogs on short legs. Definitely not a lap dog, either.

What do you mean you have "every kind of hound you can imagine?" Just wondering. Do you mean you have lots of dogs, or you own a lot of hound breeds specifically?

My other question is this...since Snowball is described as a "stud," I'm assuming you breed him to unaltered bitches, or you're planning to in the future. Has Snowball sired any litters? If so, where are the pups now, and how are they doing?

For toy breeds (and I'm really not a small dog person), I love Brussel's Griffins. They are absolutely darling.

What does this mean? Are you breeding your Maltese (as you state he is a "stud")? Where are his pups going? If Snowball hasn't excelled in his breed standard in terms of being shown, I would advise against breeding him further.
This is where the backyard breeders come in unfortunately.

And how many hounds/dogs do you own now? How many are being bred?
