6. The Basset Hound
The second hound to make the list. This dog is closely related to the beagle and its intelligence is nearly identical. Known to have very large eyes and a wonderfully strong smell, this dog is not much for brains. Rather, this dog is meant more for sniffing and hunting upon anything else. Their desire to smell things and search is so strong that the dog tends to get lost in the moment only to forget what was going on around. This is a type of roaming that has many pet owners wondering what is going on in the dog’s mind when it wanders off in this manner.
