My daughter has/had a 6 month old male bassett that died today. He was in the back yard with another older bassett and an older wienie dog. All got along great. This morning the puppy was fine running around playing, but when the boy who was dog sitting went out tonight to check on the dogs the puppy was laying on its side dead. We have no idea what happended and my daughter is devastated.

im sorry, i have just got a 12 week old basset. i read that orchid plants and other shrubbery are toxic to bassets. also it said to be careful of what detergent/cleaner you use in the cage and on floors as this can be toxic. tell your daughter im so sorry for her and of course yourself and family. jon

My condolences about your daughter's pup. The best way to know is to take the pup to the vet and have the vet examine him for the reason why he died. It could be anything for ingesting a toxic, to choking on something to a genetic issue.
