One of the oldest known dogs that hunt by scent, the Bloodhound has is very affectionate and obedient. Known to have skin that appears heavily wrinkled, this kind dog can be shy and sensitive to correction by their owner. Bloodhounds are usually black and tan, red, liver and tan, or sometimes white. The name "Bloodhound" was adopted from "blooded hound" which signified that great care was kept to keep its breeding strain clean.

First appearing in Europe long before the period of the Crusades, the Bloodhound's first specimens arrived from Constantinople. The Bloodhound has since been found in America for more than a century, and proved to be a reliable worker in the law enforcement arena. Their keen sense of smell has been proven so accurate that courts of law now accept their findings as evidence.
