Long Legged Scent Hounds
'Southern Hound' 1893
In contrast to sight hounds, scent hounds follow their prey by scent rather than sight. Often these hounds were hunted on the end of the leash, so historically were called Leash Hounds. The Bloodhound or Saint Hubert Hound is the oldest recognized Scent Hound and certainly many of our modern breeds date back to this breed.
