Otterhounds are gentle, even-tempered dogs that are becoming ever rarer, even in their native country, where they are registered as a vulnerable native breed.
About the Otterhound
These big dogs are solidly built, with a majestic head and straight legs, producing a supple, long-stride gait. Given their primary function, their large feet and rough double coat are essential characteristics of the breed.
These friendly, affectionate, and energetic hunting dogs make great companions for people who lead active lives, and are known to utilize a wide range of vocalizations.
