    Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound |Austria|

    Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound |Austria|

    The Styrian Coarse-haired Hound was developed in Austria by industrialist Carl Peintinger in the 1870s, and was originally known as the Peintinger Bracke. Peintinger crossed his female Hanoverian Scent Hound, Hela I, with a Coarse-Haired Istrian Hound, which produced a litter of excellent hunting dogs. The best of these were selectively bred until a type began to emerge. These dogs are tenacious and fearless hunters that give voice throughout the hunt. They are used for tracking wild boar in the Austrian mountains and are tough and enduring. Although they have pleasant temperaments, the breed is most commonly used as a hunting dog.
