The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen comes from the Vendee region of France where they learned to live in the rough rocky coastal terrain. The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen was developed, along with his close other breeds, around 400 years ago by the French. They were raised and developed to be rabbit hunters because of their low to the ground bodies and fast moving legs. These dogs have been bred as pack dogs and work well in groups of other dogs and people making them very extroverted in personality. They usually possess a white tail which makes them easy to point out among the brush and grass while on a hunt. The dog's facial hair, while adorable, actually serves a purpose by keeping dangerous brambles and thorns away from their eyes and nose.

It would make sense that these dogs were raised on the meat of the rabbits that they hunted in order to keep them motivated to hunt. Today the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen is still used in his homeland to hunt rabbits but also enjoys a life of a show dog or pet to some. Because of their excellent personalities and friendliness they also make great therapy dogs. In 2003 a Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen won Best in Show at Crufts, the world's largest dog show. As a show dog or a house pet the dog still contains plenty of energy that needs to be let out to keep them happy. While the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen that is kept as a pet is not working on rabbit hunts it no longer has to worry about the need to find its own food and instead is fed daily just like the rest of his family. Although the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen remains an active dog it is important to make sure that the caloric content of their food matches up with their activity level in order to keep them at a healthy weight.
