    I have an 11 month old basset hound he eats sleeps and does all the usual things, he's a happy little fella but for the last few days he has been walking about makeing a high piched cry. It got so bad the other day I thought he was in pain, he hasn't been snipped soooo do you think he'e sexualy fustrated? he eats well so can't be hunger he always has company loves a walk and a sleep. I'm lost and need some help please!!!!

    I would take him to the vet to make sure he hasn't got anything wrong asap.
    If he is fine it could be that there is a bitch in heat he can smell as my dads dally whined (squeaked) constantly before he was done and the farm collie was on heat.

    I echo the advice already given, hopefully everything will be fine, but always have a check up when there's a sudden change in behaviour.

    Have you had a look on breed specific websites to see if the noise you describe could be baying? - the pack hound call?

    There are some bassets near me and you can not mistake their baying - its deep and can be heard from a long distance. My dogs are terrified of the noise, its not surprising really as it sounds like something from a horror movie.

    I would definately see the vet as soon as possible, if he's crying when walking it sounds like he is in pain.

    Did Bertie Basset go to the vet? If so, I hope everything was OK for him!
