Bloodhound Information

The Bloodhound has been around for quite some time. In fact, many historians believe this breed was popular throughout the Mediterranean countries long before the Christian era.  Inquisitive and independent, the Bloodhound has a strong body that allows him to walk miles and miles. He stands out for his long, wrinkly face, drooping ears, loose skin and giant puppy eyes.

The Bloodhound is friendly and affectionate with his family. Around strangers, however, he can be timid and reserved. Coat colors include black and tan, liver and tan, and red. If you pick this dog, just make sure you have space – they can weigh in at up to 110 pounds!
