Scottish Deerhound Dog Breed Information

Scottish Deerhound

Scottish Deerhound

The origin of the Deerhound breed is of such antiquity and the earliest descriptive names bestowed on it so inextricably mixed that no sound conclusion can be arrived at as to whether the Deerhound was at one time identical with the ancient Irish Wolfdog and, in the course of centuries, bred to a type better suited to hunt deer, or whether, as some writers claim, he is the descendant of the hounds of the Picts.

The breed was definitely identified as a Deerhound in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

A large dog with a keen sense of smell, quiet, dignified, alert, persistent, and courageous.

Height: males, 30-32 inches; females, 28 inches upward.

Weight: males,85-110 pounds; females, 75-95 pounds.
