Can anyone explain what is "hound mix"? I am new to the dog world and so is this silly question. Does it mean Bassett Hound mix? Thanks in advance!

Not a silly question...a hound mix..is a mixed breed dog (mutt) that has hound in it.

Here is a list of the AKC Hound group:

https://www.akc.org/breeds/hound_group.cfm

A hound mix can be a mix of several different hounds...just two different hounds or some other type of breed mixed with a hound breed.

Basically, just a mutt with some sort of hound in the background. :)

Just takes time.....If I was you I would put the AKC on my fav list online. It's full of breed specific info, info on dog sports and even legislation concerning pets. :) Not to mention they have an online store where you can get all sorts of doggie goodies :)

I really enjoy looking at mutts and trying to determine what breed attributes they have... a lot like looking at humans and figuring out their heritage! ;)

nything mixed with a hound breed. Could be a beagle mix, coonhound mix, etc.

Since it's a mix, you can't generalize what it will be like. Also, a lot will be up to you andhow well you socialize it with other nice dogs and people.

If you already have a dog in your home and want to bring in a new dog, just make sure you go with the opposite sex of what you already have. Male/Female pairings usually get on better than male/male or female/female.

A hound mix is a dog that has part hound in him. Hounds are generally very good dogs. A little stubborn but good. It's impossible to say how the dog will act though as you don't know what else is in his mix. Just go to the shelter, meet the dog, have your dog meet the dog and go from there.
