This hound originated in Brinston, but is now bred more popularly in other regions, mainly the Rocchairian nation.  They typically run about 80-100 pounds and have an incredible sense of smell.  They originated as hunting dogs capable of following a scent and running with horses.  They are also used as guard dogs, sending up their wail when intruders approach.  Their coloration runs through browns, tans and grays and are often mottled, except for the solid colors on their large floppy ears.
