BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
Believed to be true descendents of Celtic Hounds, the Tyroler Bracke is a medium size scenthound that originated in Austria. Also known as Tinolen Bracke, Tyrolean Hound and Austrian Brachet, this breed was developed in 1860 as a hunting dog that could hunt in high altitudes of Austrian Mountain. It is an specialized hunter on hares, foxes and other small game but it is very highly valued by Austrain hunters for being an excellent Nachsuchenhund ? a hunting dog that is utilized to find wounded or sick deer. This ultimate hunter normally hunts alone with an excellent direction sense. It consistently gives tongue to keep its master alert and aware. The Tyroler Bracke is a medium size dog that stands between 16-21 inches and weighs about 33-48 lbs. It has a strong, athletic and slightly elongated body with a straight topline. The head is broad and large but in proportion to the body. Broad flat ears set high on the head. Large eyes are dark brown in colour. Well balanced body has moderate loin, moderately broad but very deep chest, well rounded forechest and slightly tucked-up belly. Thick double coat of this breed should be hard to the touch and be bristly in appearance. It comes in either red or black and tan colouring. This breed is NOT recognized by AKC however it is recognized by FCI.

PERSONALITY
The Tyroler Bracke is developed solely as a steadfast hunter. It is a very courageous and passionate hunter with excellent nose and exceptional trailing and tracking skills. But excellent hunting skills are not all of this dog, it is a very lively, energetic and outgoing dog with easy going nature. These qualities make Tyroler Bracke a very good family pet as well. It is loving and affectionate with its family. Being a typical hound breed, this dog does have stubborn streak but it is trainable with firm and consistent training. A properly trained and socialized dog will be gentle and playful with children as well as tolerant of other dogs.

A properly trained and socialized dog will become very loving family pet and playful playmate of children.

CARE
