Bloodhounds are one of the more prominent police dogs because of their acute sense of smell. Bloodhounds were originally bred in the early 1100's as hunt deer, boar, and other larger prey. Towards the ends of the Middle Ages, breeders recognized their sensory potential and started breeding them to become tracking dogs. Bloodhound then became popular tracking dogs and were used in the military, police, and rescue missions. Bloodhounds have a droopy look with sagging eyes, low hanging ears, and slobbery muzzle. Bloodhounds have large bones that support their massive body and a large chest that uphold their large lung capacity. While having an average lifespan, Bloodhounds have many health problems that usually lead to an earlier demise. They have a history of hip and elbow dysplasia as well as eye problems like entropion, ectropion, and dry eyes. Bloodhounds are known to be affectionate and gentle with their owners but are not recommended as a house pet to an inexperienced owner due to their apex personality.
