BASSET Hound owners are invited to Otterton at 10am on Sunday June 8 to join a new group and to walk their dog.

More than 20 owners and their pets are expected to walk around six miles along the coast.

Group leader Dave Patten said the dogs were known for their cuteness, but were an old breed bred to hunt and walk long distances.

"Few do nowadays," he said. "They work by scent and once they pick up the trail of a rabbit or deer, they're in a world of their own. "They can be stubborn, obstinate and difficult or impossible to train but we owners like to call it intelligence!"
