Home / Term / A / Alpine Dachsbracke

The Alpine Dachsbracke is a fearless stocky dog and a favorite for many hunters. Created in the Mountains of Austria, the Alpine Dachsbracke was developed as a breed of the Scent Hound. It is very famous for its strong sense of trail. It could trail a wounded animal and bring it to its master without any further harm to the game.

As a robust breed and sturdy dog, the Alpine Dachsbracke is formidable in stature although it is a small dog going by its height. It weighs an average of 33 to 40 pounds and a height of 13 to 16 inches. The coat is short, dense but smooth in texture. The most common color you would find the Alpine Dachsbracke is dark deer red although there might be a small mix of black fur. It bears quite a resemblance to the Dachshund.

The Alpine Dachsbracke has a very powerful scent and used by hunters and gamekeepers to track wounded animals. It can bring big wounded games such as deer, hare, and boar to its master without eating or harming the animal any further. While it is great at home with the family and other pets, the Alpine Dachsbracke is best on the field or hunting reserves with hunters.
