Introduction

General information

  • Belgian breed bred by monks in the Middle Ages for scent tracking.
  • Instinct to follow scent is still strong and is still used for its original purpose today.
  • Difficult to obedience train and their typical baying song is not to everyone's liking. However, they are placid affable hounds, with a very sad look.
