      About Bloodhounds

      Bloodhounds are famous for their incredible sense of smell, which is unrivaled by any other breed. A bloodhound's droopy jowls, long ears and sagging skin give it a distinctive, easily recognizable appearance. Originating in Europe centuries ago, Bloodhounds excel at police work and tracking, and also make loveable, family-friendly pets. Due to their size, these dogs thrive in larger living spaces.

      Did You Know?

      The Bloodhound is an extremely gentle, kind and loving breed, so if you're looking for a guard dog, look elsewhere!

      Origin of the Bloodhound

      While dogs that hunt by scent have dated as far back as the first century AD, the first known reference to the Bloodhound was in a 1350 poem by Sir Humphrey de Bohun called "William of Palerne."
