Fun Bloodhound Facts

  • gentle
  • loves outdoors
  • loves to hunt

Although sad in appearance with their wrinkly foreheads, the Bloodhound is an affectionate, sweet and gentle giant whose nose cannot be matched by any other breed. They are black and tan, liver, red or tan, and are covered in loose, wrinkly skin. Bloodhounds received their name due to the fact that they have such pure blood, meaning their breeding standards were untainted. This pure record is largely due to church dignitaries who took care of the breed and were determined to keep it unpolluted. Their noses are unlike anything else in that Bloodhounds, or the Chien de Saint Hubert, can track any scent even two weeks after it being fresh. Their long ears help to waft scent into their noses as they sniff the ground, and the scent travels up their nostrils into a membranous structure which is estimated to hold as much as 250 million scent (olfactory) receptors - 40 times that of a human! The Bloodhound is a powerful dog that is larger than the other hounds and can take up more space than most dogs. Their skin is thin to the touch and extremely loose. Bloodhounds are powerful, yet graceful. The Bloodhound is good with children and other animals with their gentle, loving nature. They have a tendency to drool, but is otherwise a very clean dog. They are also prone to bay quite a lot, and need an area in which they are allowed to make noise. Inside the house they can be quiet, gentle and placid creatures, but when outside and tracking a scent, Bloodhounds can often be stubborn and independent about being called off a trail. An outstanding ability as a scent hound, Bloodhounds are superior in tracking abilities to all other hounds and dogs alike which has made them extremely useful in police investigations. One Bloodhound is known to have tracked down over 600 criminals. Another is known to have caught 23 escaped convicts in a day and a half! Often these dogs are used in pursuing lost hikers or children because of their gentle actions. Bloodhounds will follow a scent to no end but will not attack the source. The Police force, as well as thousands of families around the world, would not be what they are today without the St. Hubert Hound, the Chien de Saint Hubert, or the dog most unanimously known as the Bloodhound.
