    Estonian Hound |Estonia|

    Estonian Hound |Estonia|

    Rarely seen outside their native country in Eastern Europe, these scent hounds were developed in the mid-twentieth century from Dachshunds, Foxhounds, Beagles, Swiss Bernese Hounds, Swiss Lucerne Hounds, and Russian-Polish Hounds. The Estonian Hound is a highly efficient hunter of rabbits and foxes. They are personable dogs that can make good companions for an active home, and they excel at events like agility. However, like many pack hounds, they do not like to be left on their own, even for short periods.

    History

    The Estonian Hound is a relatively new breed and the only one to originate in Estonia. These scent hounds were developed in 1947 when the Ministry of Economy in the former USSR decided each Soviet Republic should have its own dog breed. It is now the national dog of Estonia.

    The Estonian was specially developed as a hunting dog and can withstand the extreme cold of its native home.
