About the Coarse-Haired Styrian Hound

Coarse-Haired Styrian Hounds are medium-sized, solidly built dogs with a serious but not vicious expression.

Above all, they are enthusiastic hunters that constantly give tongue as firm and determined trackers. The breed's coarse hair ensures that Styrians are able to work in all weathers.
