This fine animal is now, I believe, extinct, though there are still pome gentlemen who maintain that they possess the breed in all its pristine purity of blood. They are much larger than the deer-hound, some of them being 35 or even 38 inches high, but resembling that dog in shape, being generally of a fawn color, with a rough coat and pendent ears. They were formerly used for the purpose of hunting the wolf.
