The Bloodhound is one of the oldest scent hunting breeds. Their name does not refer to scenting blood, but rather to its status as the “blooded hound”, meaning aristocratic. They have been described as a unique looking dog in a baggy suit. This breed has such a distinct ability to discriminate human scent that it is the only breed whose findings can be submitted as evidence in a court of law. Today the Bloodhound is still used for tracking, search and rescue and law enforcement. This breed is so versatile it could be looking for a lost child today, in the show ring tomorrow, and happily lounging on the couch the day after that. Having been recognized by the AKC in 1885, the Bloodhound can range in size from 23 to 27 inches tall at the withers and is a great companion dog when not working.
