Drever |Sweden|

Drever |Sweden|

The Drever is a low-slung, versatile hound primarily used for hunting deer at slow speeds, but can also hunt smaller game such as hare. The breed developed in the 1850s in Southern Germany, Austria, and Switzerland from the Westphalian Dachsbracke, and was imported to Sweden in the early twentieth century. In 1947 their name was changed to Drever—from the Swedish word drev, meaning “drive,” reflecting the breed’s ability to drive game to the hunter. Although good-natured, the Drever is not suited to a non-working lifestyle.
