More details about the Alpine Dachsbracke

Alpine Dachsbracke: Origins and history

It was during the reign of Emperor Francis Joseph I (1848 – 1916) that the Alpine came into being. Rumour has it that the emperor’s son Crown Prince Rudolf ordered his gamekeepers to come up with a dog that was nimble, resilient and tenacious, and small enough to follow small game into burrows. It wasn’t until 1932 that the breed became officially recognised and was categorised as a scent hound.
