A lemon A blond Basset Hound is a dog of the Basset Hound breed. “Lemon” is a colour name in dog breeding that refers to a certain shade of yellow.
Because all Basset Hounds have white spotting on their paws, chest, neck, and tail tip, lemon-colored Basset Hounds are also known as lemon and white. Lemon Basset Hounds, unlike most other canines of this breed, have no black hairs. Basset Hounds with either a lemon or a red coat have the same recessive gene, albeit the genetic pathway that causes the lemon Basset Hound’s diluted coloration is unknown.
