The Basset Hound is another example of how a symbol's specific characteristics, qualities or nature can take the meaning beyond its basic definition. Basset Hounds are scent dogs and relentless on the trail. They are difficult to train and have a tendency to become overweight. They are built for endurance, not for speed. As a result a Basset Hound can represent discernment, steadfast commitment to purpose, and challenges in learning new things among other things.
