Otterhound Dog Breed
The Otterhound was developed in England as early as the fourteenth century to hunt and destroy otters that were decimating the fish in English rivers. The breed is believed to have evolved from a number of other breeds including the Bloodhound, and water spaniels.
The Otterhound has a cheerful disposition and enjoys human companionship. He is reasonably good with children. He possess a remarkably musical baying voice.
