The Sherlock of Dogs

You may recognize the bloodhound as one of the most commonly used dogs in a search-and-rescue effort.

Known for its keen sense of smell and tracking abilities, the bloodhound is the ultimate expert at sniffing out human scent over great distances—even through water—days after an individual has long disappeared.

Would it surprise you, then, to know that the bloodhound is also called the “sleuth hound”? Quite fitting for this doggy detective.

As with any pet, be sure to regularly consult a veterinarian for routine care and medical advice for your four-legged friend.
