This hybrid is obtained from the cross breed of the Basset Hound and the Shar-Pei purebreds. Sometimes called HIPPO HEAD, this breed is medium size. They are loving and loyal but fairly laid back and enjoy sleeping all day.
The Ba-Shar usually comes in fawn, cream and brown, can be with white markings on their chest or none at all.
The coat of this breed is harsh, dense, water-resistant and short. Like their Chinese Shar-Pei parent, they are also known for having deep wrinkles over the body.
They are lazy by nature and enjoy relaxing and sleeping all day. They love their family and mingle well with other dogs and pets in the house but they must be socialized with them from childhood. They are intelligent and caring and feel happy when getting attention.
They may become fussy if ignored for a longish time period. Avoid soy products as they might dry out its fur.
They need a firm owner for training although they learn quickly due to their intelligence.
Mostly they like to just relax and sleep most of the time but also enjoy playing and walking.
