Hanoverian Scent Hound: Origins and history

Scenthounds can be traced all the way back to the Middle Ages, but the modern breeds were developed in the 18th century. Unsurprisingly, the Hanover Red Dog was developed in the Hanover region of Germany. The Hanover red dog is primarily used to track big game, such as deer and elk. They were designed to thrive in mountainous regions and are not really suited to urban living.
