Tyrolean Hound

The Tyrolean Hound is a type of dog. The Tyrolean Hound is supposedly descendant from the Celtic Hounds. Emperor Maximilian I used this hound for hunting hare and fox and for tracking wounded game. Selective breeding began in 1860 which led to the breed being officially recognized in 1908. These dogs often hunted alone (not in a pack) and had a fine scenting ability.

This medium sized hound has broad flat ears set high on the head. They have a thick double coat including a coarse undercoat and the rear legs are well feathered. There are two main colors, red, black and tan, both of which may have white markings.
