Finnish Hound

The Finnish Hound (suomenajokoira, Finnish Bracke) is a breed of dog originally bred for Hunting dog hare and fox.


The Finnish Hound was a result of a breeding programme in the 1800s, which involved French, German and Swedish hounds. The goal was to develop a hound dog that could work on hilly terrain and in deep snow. The Finnish Hound has become Finland's most popular dog breed. Although the breed is very popular in Finland and Sweden, it is quite uncommon elsewhere.
