He looks a bit like a strange dachshund, doesn't he but in fact he's a Bassett des Alpes (also called a Alpine Dachsbracke) The breed originates from Austria and is used to hunt wild boar and also to find wounded animals and this is exactly what he does in Gorbio with his owner.

I have not heard of this breed ..... he has longer legs than the Dashy so I guess this is why he hunts and not just goes down the holes etc ?

I agree, he's a sweet looking dog. Then again, they all look sweet to me.
