General Breed Information

The Hanoverian Scenthound is a breed that was developed from the Liam Hound that existed during the early Middle Ages. The Liam Hound was used for finding wounded game when firearms were used for killing prey. The Hanoverian hunting estate, found in the kingdom of Hannover, developed the breed further, and in 1894, the name Hanoverian Scenthound was adopted and the breed club was established. Since then, the breed has been bred strictly with regard to their working ability. They were used exclusively for hunting big game.

Hanoverian Scenthounds are medium-sized dogs with a powerful and well-proportioned build. They have well set, strongly muscled forelegs and hind limbs that enable them to do much work without tiring. These dogs have a broad skull that is flatly rounded and a strongly pronounced stop. The forehead of these dogs is slightly wrinkled. They have a broad nose that is usually black in colour, although it can also be dark brown. They have a strong and long neck, broad loins, and a deep chest. The skin of these dogs is thick and rather loose, and their coat is thick, short, and coarse. The acceptable coat colours for this breed include light to dark deer-red and brindle. They may have a white mask and small white patches on their forechest.
