Meet Brucey!

Basset Hound
Bristol, South West

Meet Brucey, the sociable and talented Bassett Hound for film and TV hire. Known for their long, slender physique and friendly temperament, Basset Hounds make excellent pets and even better pet actors.

Brucey is a very affectionate dog who loves to interact with people of all ages and can keep up with other dogs in play. Contrary to the popular myth that Basset Hounds are untrainable, Bruce knows over 40 commands and can respond to both physical and vocal cues, even from people outside his family. With advanced notice, this trick-trained pet talent can learn new behaviours to meet your project’s needs.

As a typical ‘American show’ type Basset Hound, Brucey has a slender physique, exceptionally long ears, and a strong athletic build. He has one blue eye (heterochromia) and distinctive flecking across his chest and shoulder blades. He enjoys being groomed, brushed, and having his ears cleaned, making him easy to work with on set.

In all, Brucey Bratwurst is a unique and fun-loving Basset Hound who proves that this breed is not untrainable. He’s the perfect animal actor for film, TV, and photography briefs, thanks to his friendly and obedient nature. If you’re looking for a talented Bassett Hound for film and TV, Brucey is the ideal candidate for your project.
