The History Behind Bloodhounds

Bloodhounds are known for having long floppy ears and according to Wikipedia the reason they have them is for picking up on the scent of blood when hunting. Hence the name Bloodhound.

They were originally bred for hunting wild animals like deer, ducks and wild boar. They were so good at tracking scents that in the Middle Ages they were used to track people who were missing or prisoners who escaped.

Tigger, however, hasn’t used those ears for hunting animals or tracking people, he’s used them for winning competitions and setting world records.
