Finnish Hound |Finland|

Finnish Hound |Finland|

The Finnish Hound was developed from the eighteenth century by breeders who wanted to create a hound that was suited to the difficult, snowy, mountainous terrain and harsh climate of Finland. Foxhounds, Harriers, German, Swiss, and Polish hounds were used in the breed foundation, along with Russian hounds and local Finnish dogs. The first breed standard was written in 1893, but the modern standard was adopted in 1932. The breed is very popular in Finland for hunting hare and fox and is noted for its excellent voice. They are not commonly found outside Finland.
