The Schillerstövare, translated as the Schiller Hound in English, is a breed of dog of the scenthound type, originating as a hunting dog in Sweden in the late 19th century.

Schillerstovare Appearance

The Schillerstövare is a medium to large sized running hound for hunting fox and rabbits, standing 53–61 cm (21-24 ins) at the withers and weighing 18–25 kg (40-55 lbs). The coat is harsh and not too short, lying close to the body. The colour is black and tan, a tan body with a black mantle on the back. The drop ears are broad and not excessively long, and the long tail is carried on a line with the back when running. Faults in the breed (which indicate the dog should not be bred) include items of structure that would impede running, such as obtuse angle between shoulder blade and upper arm and restricted hind movement, along with dish faced and aloofness.

Schillerstovare Health and temperament

No unusual diseases or claims of extraordinary health have been documented for this breed. The breed standard describes the ideal temperament as lively and attentive.
