When it comes to size and weight, the Bassador is considered to be medium-sized. They typically weigh between 40-60 pounds and stand at around 15-20 inches tall at the shoulder. The lifespan of this breed is usually around 10-12 years when properly cared for.

The personality of the Bassador dog is one of its most attractive features; they are known for being loyal companions who are eager to please their owners. They are also very intelligent dogs who love to learn new things and can be easily trained with patience and consistency.

Bassadors are generally friendly with other dogs, children, and other animals if they have been socialized properly from an early age. They do not tend to bark excessively but may become protective if they feel threatened or uncomfortable in certain situations.

The benefits of having a Bassador dog as a pet include their loyalty towards their owners, intelligence level which makes them easy to train, low maintenance grooming needs due to their short coat length, and overall friendliness towards people and other animals alike!
