The Petits Bassets Griffons Vendeen, often abbreviated to PBGV, is a small, robust French hound breed. This breed is known for its rough, shaggy, medium-length coat, usually in solid or mixed colors of white, black, and tan. PBGVs have a lively, friendly, and intelligent personality, and are known to be great companions and family pets. They require plenty of exercise due to their hunting roots. Though small, they possess a keen nose and strong hunting instincts. Regular grooming is required to keep their scruffy coat in good condition.
