Appearance of Bloodhound
The head of Bloodhound is narrow on the front, wide on the side, short on the snout, flat on both sides of the head, and the width of the whole head is approximately equal. The brow bone is not very prominent, but because of the deep eyes, so the brow bone is more obvious. The eyes are deeply embedded in the eye socket, and the eyelids are rhombic or diamond shaped. As a result, the lower eyelids turn out and droop like the upper lip. The color of the eyes is in line with the general tone, ranging from dark brown to yellow, but dark brown (hazel) is definitely the preferred color, although it is rare in liver and brown dogs. The ears feel thin and soft to the touch, extremely long, very low in position, drooping with graceful folds, and the lower part curls inward and backward. There is loose skin on the head, which is redundant almost everywhere, but is more pronounced when he lowers his head; these loose skin droops down and forms wrinkles, especially on the forehead and on both sides of the face. The nostrils are large and open. Upper lip dewlap down, neck also has loose skin, forming throat fat, and very obvious.
The neck is long, the shoulder blades are muscular and lean back; the ribs are well supported; the chest is deep enough. The forelegs are straight and bony; the feet are strong; the thighs and the second thighs are well developed. The tail is long and slender, with a medium amount of hair at the bottom, raised high but not above the topline. The fur is black, brown, red, or mixed with some light or badger hair, sometimes mixed with some white.
The origin of Bloodhound
Bloodhound is one of the earliest known hounds. Its origin can be traced back to 1000 A.D. In the 8th century, monks in Belgian monasteries raised a dog called St huberts, the predecessor of Bloodhound.
The monks perfected the olfactory hounds through targeted breeding, rather than creating them. That is to say, Bloodhound is a natural breed, not a human hybrid.
In Belgium, St. Hubert hounds are used to track wolves or deer. They can also track injured prey. In 1066, the dog was brought to England and people began to call it Bloodhound. In 1871, Bloodhound made its debut at the British dog show. In 1885, Bloodhound was certified by AKC.
Bloodhound behaves very gentlemanly, patient, and friendly to children and other small animals. Bloodhound allows children to sit on it, and no matter what kind of Rua it is, it takes everything - but that's not good, because sometimes kids can hurt dogs. It's a big danger to the baby's spine. In addition, good temper also depends on the situation - please remember, Bloodhound has the habit of protecting food, so no one should easily compete for its food or toys. Some Bloodhound are timid, shy or alert. They are loyal to their owners and family members, but sometimes they may be aggressive to dogs of the same sex.
