More details about the Halden Hound

Halden Hound: Origins and history

The first Halden Hound dogs came about by breeding a mix of English, Swiss and other European hounds. At one point, it is thought that the English Beagle was an ancestor of the breed. In more recent years, the Halden Hound has become a very rare breed after disease outbreaks and both World Wars have reduced its population. It is classed as a rare breed, especially since only a small number of pups have been registered in Norway, and none others internationally. This means that the breed is at risk of extinction. 

FCI classification of the Halden Hound
