Bloodhound

Originating in Belgium, the noble and dignified Bloodhound is famed for his ability to follow a human scent over all terrains, even after many hours, although he was initially bred to hunt wild boar and deer.

A sensitive, good natured and affectionate breed, yet tireless when following a scent trail.

Unlike many other hound breeds, Bloodhounds are most frequently used as solitary trackers. When they are on a trail, they are usually silent and not as vocal as other scenthounds; nevertheless, the bay of the Bloodhound is among the most impressive of hound voices.
