So you’re looking to adopt an Hanoverian Scenthound, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “Hailing from Germany, The Hanoverian Scenthound is the Hannoverscher Schweißhund in its native language. In general appearance, the highly efficient Hanoverian is of medium-large size, well proportioned and powerful. Well set strongly muscled fore and hind limbs qualify him for tireless work. His broad, deep chest provides ample room for the lungs and enables long, strenuous chases. The slightly wrinkled forehead and the clear, dark eyes produce the serious expression typical of the Hanoverian Scenthound. Also typical for the breed is the red primary color of the coat, which can vary from a pale fawn color to a dark brindle, appearing almost black. The Hanoverian Scenthound has a calm and assured temperament, at the same time sensitive with his handler, and choosy and discerning with strangers. He has high capabilities of concentration in any tracking work with strong loyalty to the hunter in charge.”
An Hanoverian Scenthound typically ranges from 48.26cm to 53.34cm in height, and weighs from 35.83379723kg to 44.905644630000005kg.
