an orange A dog of the Basset Hound breed with blond fur is known as a Basset Hound. In dog breeding, the term “lemon” is used to describe a specific shade of yellow.
Lemon-colored Basset Hounds are sometimes known as lemon and white Basset Hounds because all Basset Hounds have some white markings, typically on the paws, chest, neck, and tip of the tail.
Lemon Basset Hounds don’t have any black hairs, though, in contrast to most other members of this breed. Although the exact genetic mechanism causing the lemon Basset Hound’s diluted hue is not entirely understood, the same recessive gene is the source of Basset Hounds having either a red or a lemon coat.
