The bloodhound was raised to be a great hunter, not to be long lived. It has a lifespan of around 9 to 11 years. If you are a hunter then the bloodhound is a natural pet, they have been carefully bred for hundreds of years to perfect their sense of smell and dedication to the chase.
But these dogs aren’t just great trackers; they’re also great friends. They are sweet and great with kids, although they can be a little difficult to train since they can easily get fixated on far off scents. If you want to be the hero to a heroic dog, then don’t hesitate to adopt a retired search and rescue bloodhound who needs a good home to live out its final days in.
