With his keen scent ability, the Bloodhound is used worldwide as a tracking dog in criminal searches and rescue efforts. This breed descended from the St. Huberts Hound of eighth century Belgium. Kind, docile and affectionate, the Bloodhound is a good family pet. The breed has a distinctive look due to abundant loose skin that hangs around the head and neck forming deep folds. The coat should be groomed weekly.
