Hound Dog Breeds

Hound breeds are dogs that share the common trait of being used for hunting. There are two types of hound dogs: scent hounds and sight hounds. As the name suggests, scent hounds have a keen sense of smell. They typically have long ears which touches the ground and stirs up more scent. Sight hounds are typically slim and lean and can run long distances without tiring.
