    Tyrolean Hound |Austria|

    Tyrolean Hound |Austria|

    The Tyrolean Hound traces to the mountainous state of Tyrol in western Austria and to the ancient Celtic Hounds, which also gave rise to the Austrian Black and Tan Hound. There are written references to Tyroleans that date back many hundreds of years. Specific breeding for type did not begin in earnest until the 1860s, however. The first breed standards were adopted in 1896, the same year the Tyrolean was first exhibited at a show in Innsbruck. The Tyrolean often hunts singly and excels in wooded areas and mountains. They are mostly used for hunting hare and fox, and for tracking wounded game.
