Hound Dog Breeds Page 1
Used for centuries assisting hunters tracking game, hounds are broken down into four major groups based on the way they track their prey–
sight hounds, scent hounds, aboriginal hounds, and “other” hounds, which use a combination of sight, sound and scent.


Hound Dog Breeds

A very old sight hound dog breed, the typical Afghan hound can be aloof and dignified, but happy and clownish when playing. They are also popular as show dogs.

Small, unusual, elegant, athletic dogs about the size of a fox terrier, Basenji hounds are very clever, and are known for their ability to climb and can easily get over chain wire fences.

Naturally well-behaved making him the perfect household pet that is very gentle, sweet, and loving.  Bassett hounds also make good alarm dogs.

Black & Tan Coonhound
Considered to have the most highly developed sense of smell in the canine world. Highly intelligent, loyal, obedient, and adept at problem solving, the Black and Tan Coonhound is powerful, large, and hard-working.

The Bloodhound is a very powerful, massive hound.  The Bloodhound is a kind, patient, noble, mild-mannered and lovable dog who is excellent with children.
