The History Of The Deutsch Bracke
The Deutsch Bracke is also known as the Olpe Hound and German Foxhound. They originated in Germany during the 1800’s.

An effective tracking dog from the family of foxhounds. Bred originally in Germany with typical colors and markings of the hound. At the turn of the 20th century there were various breeds of pack hounds in Germany. Now with the exception of the Deutsche Bracke, they are virtually extinct.

A standard was drawn up during 1955 in Olpe, Germany to fix the type for show purposes and because of this, the breed is sometimes referred to as the Olpe Hound. Similar in size to the English Harrier and is related to the Stovare group of scent hounds.

A pack hound with a melodious voice like its Foxhound brethren. The majority of these hounds are in the hands of masters of Foxhounds and used for fox hunting. Unsuitable as a house pet, this is an outdoor dog and finding a puppy to purchase will be difficult.
