So you’re looking to adopt an Transylvanian Hound, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “The Transylvanian Hound is an ancient Hungarian hunter created by special climate, terrain and hunting conditions. His whole appearance reflects nobility and harmony. Due to his medium-size, his body is athletic, lean, muscular, and exaggerated, and his movement is balanced and elegant. Its basic nature is calm, balanced yet firm, temperamental and adaptable. Their playful nature makes them an ideal family favorite. Because of their balance and friendliness, they can be kept both in an apartment or house. His courage and loyalty make him a good guard.This scent hound is a basic dog, but it can also be used for retrieval. Hunting in a group or alone, you will hear a far-ranging, high, ringing tone indicating the direction of the game. Working far from the farm, they developed problem-solving abilities and through the centuries have become highly intelligent. The Transylvanian Hound is good-natured, courageous, and enduring. At his foundation, he is quiet and even, but also determined and lively. The environmental conditions of the Carpathians made the breed a tough, brave dog.”
An Transylvanian Hound typically ranges from 55.88cm to 66.04cm in height, and weighs from 24.947580350000003kg to 24.947580350000003kg.
