Hound Dogs

hound dogsHounds are dogs which were originally bred and used for hunting. There are both scent hounds and sight hounds. Sight hounds such as Greyhounds and Whippets have very sharp eyesight, while scent hounds such as Beagles or Bloodhounds track prey using their keen sense of smell.

Scent hounds often require a significant amount of exercise, while Sighthounds will often be happy with shorter walks and a daily sprint.

In the UK a cross between two different Sighthound breeds is called a Long Dog while a cross between a Sighthound and another working breed, such as a Collie, is known as a Lurcher.
