Unusual dog breed nowadays.


Recommended Posts

Just been chatting to my mate in the UK, he has just got an Otter Hound in the boarding kennel, the first one he has ever seen, there's less Otter hound left in the world than there are giant panda in the wild.

Wow... Rare as rockinghorse shite.

Though I'm sure that'd be a kc one and not 'directly' bred from former working stock.

I always wonder how the kc hounds (fox, harrier etc) would react if they were in a pack. Would their instincts make them happier if they were so, or do humans just take that roll.. 🤔

I have never seen one, that's why he sent me the pics, beautiful looking dog 👍

On the subject or rare working breeds, I was in Cobham High Street once, I actually stopped a bloke to enquire about his dog, he said I was the first person to ever recognise it as a dandy dinmont 😳

I haven't seen one of those either, but sure I would recognise one in the flesh.

There's a pack of minkies on the south coast that has a lot of otter hounds though there's some retired foxhounds mixed in. This is the only pic I can find at the minute. 

Can probably arrange a day with them on the Saturday before the fishing comp if anyone is interested. (yeah I know I've said that for 5 years but this year will be different 😂

The new forest had a famous line of Welsh in them from a hound called medig (sic). Most of their hounds have gone back to a Welsh pack this year I believe as they have turned to bloodhounds
