A smallish, wire-coated red-wheaten or fawn hound, the Basset Fauve de Bretagne weighs 36-40lbs, standing 13-15" at the shoulder. Not much is known about the health status of the Basset Fauve de Bretagne, and which, if any, common health problems affect it. Based on a small study, it is thought the average life expectancy is 10-14 years, which is typical although a little low for breeds of it's size.
