What kind of dog is Fred?

Many of Drummond’s fans recognized that Fred was a basset hound, which the American Kennel Club says it’s a “perennial favorite of dog lovers all over the world.” The AKC also says that the dog doesn’t grow more than 14 inches and can weigh between 40 to 65 pounds.

These dogs are said to be independent and therefore not the easiest to train. However, they are only second to the Bloodhound’s nose in their ability to smell. AKC rates this breed as one that is good with young children as well as with other dogs.
