Deutsche Bracke

In terms of physique and behaviour, the Deutsche Bracke has all the qualities and natural aptitudes of a hound. As such, it is very important that dogs of this breed work and live outdoors.

About the Deutsche Bracke

The Deutsche Bracke is a light, high stationed, elegant, yet strongly made hunting dog with a noble, comparatively fine head, good leathers and a well carried, but in respect of the noble general appearance, remarkably thick tail.

Their loving and even temper means these dogs make great family pets, although they do require an owner with some experience caring for hounds.
