PETIT BASSET GRIFFON VENDEEN APPEARANCE:
Both sexes should be of similar size, range between 12.5 and 15.5 inches (32 to 40 cm) at the withers and between 35 and 45 pounds (15 to 20 kilograms).

Like the other 3 Griffon Vendeen breeds: the Grand Griffon Vendeen, Briquet Griffon Vendeen, and the Grand Basset Griffon Vendeen; they are solid dogs that appear rough and unrefined yet casual. They have short legs, a sturdy bone structure, and a thick body that is about half as much longer than it is tall at the withers.

The double coat is both long and rough. The fur on the face resembles a beard and moustache similar to that of a Scottish Terrier. They have drop ears like many hounds share. The tail is long and tapered to the end, similar in shape to a saber. The coloring is primarily white with spots of orange, lemon, or black. They may be bicolor, tricolor, or have grizzling.
