In terms of physique and behavior, the German Hound 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.
The German Hound is a light, high stationed, elegant, yet strongly made hunting dog with a noble, comparatively fine head, good leathers and well-carried with a 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.
