Transylvanian Hound Information

The breed is classified by the FCI as a medium-sized hound, with the general characteristics of the Mid-European type, in that breed registry's classification system. The UKC classifies the breed in that registry's Scenthound group. The Translvanian Hound is hardy, and able to tolerate rough weather conditions.

The breed is described by the FCI standard as "good-natured, courageous, enduring", with a basic character that is "quick, even, but also determined and lively", and the UKC standard uses similar terms. Properly trained, the dogs can hunt comparatively independently, and at a considerable distance from handlers, singly or in groups. Hunting behaviors exhibited by the breed include tracking (by scent), pointing, and driving game. The dog has a high-pitched, ringing bark.
