Hi ,
I´m curious about how much does a basset weights.

My males are 75 and 80 pounds each... And very elegant and athletic.
And my females are 55 and 43 pounds ...
The 43 one is too small... I know...

What about yours?

They are all different. Also long as they do not look too skinny or fat right in front of the back legs they should be fine..

This is the chart my Vet has in the office. ideal is the middle pic. http://www.iams.com/iams/en_US/data_roo ... 7r_004.jpg

our previous basset was only 43lbs but she was not underweight, just a small basset.

I am pretty sure that the only place that doesn't use kilograms is the United States lol.

My basset is 45 pounds. He takes after his mom which weighed 40 pounds. His dad was 65.

Wow, 80lbs that is big.. but all bassets are different. Our previous basset was 43lbs and it was perfect for her. With bassets or any long backed dog, they should be a little on the thin side of normal, so as not to put too much stress on the back.

Our two current bassets, one male one female, both are 4.5 months old, two different litters born two days apart, are both 25lbs (at least they were a couple days ago). So if figure we are looking at 50lbs minimum for these two full grown.
