Alpine Dachsbracke |Austria|

Alpine Dachsbracke |Austria|

The Alpine Dachsbracke is a small but powerful scent hound that is believed to have been developed in the mid-nineteenth century and is linked to the kennels of Austria’s Crown Prince Rudolf. The crown prince’s gamekeepers kept Alpine Dachsbrackes (or their ancestors) and used the low-slung dogs for tracking wounded deer and scenting out hare and foxes. Crown Prince Rudolf is said to have taken some of his Dachsbrackes with him when hunting in Egypt and Turkey. These cheerful, bold dogs are primarily used for hunting, but they can make good companions and are noted for getting along with children and other dogs if properly introduced.
