yes it's very normal for them to be lazy and sleep all day. i have a 3 year old male i got him from the pound 2 years ago, and he eats, sleeps and plays but mostly sleeps lol.

Yes, the Basset Hound is a breed of dog that likes to conserve it's energy. Don't be alarmed unless you notice the dog being sluggish or seemingly sick. Then it's time for a trip to the vet. But all in all, your dog is just being a normal Basset.
