- Other names:
- St. Hubert Hound
- Flemish Hound
- Sleuth Hound
Famous for their wrinkled heads and droopy eyes, bloodhounds are renowned for their scent and tracking skills. Originally bred to trail wild boar, deer, and other large game, bloodhounds today more commonly use their scenting abilities to aid law enforcement.
Despite the breed's tracking ability, they are extremely friendly dogs to both people and animals. Their only desire in life is to follow a scent. They make good family dogs, however they can be difficult to care for so they are not recommended for people inexperienced with dogs.
