The Finnish Hound was a result of a breeding program in the 1800s which involved French, German and Swedish hounds.

The Finnish Hound has become Finland's most popular native working breed. Although it is very popular in Finland and Sweden, it is uncommon elsewhere. Hunting season for a Finnish Hound is Sep - Feb. He is rarely exhibited.

The coat of the Finnish Hound is short, but dense and coarse to the touch. Colors include tan with black saddle; small white markings on head, chest, feet and tail tip.

The smooth, shorthaired coat is easy to keep in peak condition. Brush with a firm bristle brush, and dry shampoo occasionally.

Bathe with mild soap only when necessary. The nails should be kept trimmed. These dogs are average shedders.

Temperament: Friendly, Energetic, Calm, Passionate, Versatile, Independent
