9 Long-Eared Dog Breeds

What's your favorite part of a dog? Her heart-melting expression? That wildly-wagging tail when you walk in the door? Maybe it's his soft muzzle or wiry coat?

Or maybe, like many people, you're drawn to dogs with strokably long ears. Here are a few long-eared breeds that stand out.

One of the most famous of the bunch is the irresistible Basset Hound. A waddling walk, doleful eyes and yes, those ears, make the Basset a fan favorite in the show ring or the backyard.
