An outstanding hunter, the dignified Scottish Deerhound is a lofty, slender sighthound developed in the 16th and 17th centuries. He is gentle and loving with his human family, yet fearless and determined while hunting in the field. This agile, athletic breed needs frequent leash walks or exercise in a fenced area. The Scottish Deerhound’s harsh coat requires minimal brushing and occasional bathing.
