|General Information about Hound Dogs|
All of the dogs listed below belong to the collection of dogs referred to as Hound Dogs.
As implied by its name Hound Dogs have been bred to chase (or hound) a quarry by sight or smell, or a combination of both senses.
Sighthounds have exceptional eyesight, combined with the speed and stamina necessary to catch the intended prey once seen, typical examples being the Greyhound and the Whippet.
Hounds which rely strongly on the sense of smell to follow the trail of a prey, such as the Bloodhound, quite literally follow their noses, speed and eyesight is of less importance.
