Default Since I'm on such a hound kick lately, which are your favourites?

I've never met a Redbone Coonhound that I didn't immediately fall in love with. Same with Black-and-tans.

Sighthounds count too! I have had an Ibizan obsession since I opened my first dog book.

I'm a big fan of Zois, greyhounds and standard dachshunds. I really love a nice LH standard dachs.

I'm not really a good fit for a hound as far as living with them, but there are lots I love the looks of. Dachshunds (smooth and longhaired... wires are ok, but not quite my thing), Ibizans, Pharaohs, Whippets (LH inparticular), Salukis and Redbone Coonhounds are some of my favourites. My absolute favourite is the Rhodesian Ridgeback though. I love them and could see myself with one someday. I quite enjoy the ones that I know. And lately I've really, really been wanting another Dachshund for some reason. While they're really not ideal for me, I had a lot of fun with the ones we had and think I could do it again. But definitely not anytime soon... it would be in the far away future.

LHW Obviously , but I like the smooths too. Not as big a fan of the silkens I have met. I do like salukis.

Not a scent hound person, they are a really bad fit for me. BUT I do love basenjis

ridgebacks are in the hound group for show purposes, but they are really curs.
i like the hounds that get the job done, but a calico colored goodman is a stiking dog as is a light brindle coldblood grey or stag. a light marked yellow or red brindle plott or july is easy to look at as well.
basenji is a pariah & norwegians are spitz/northerns. most all dogs will hunt, it doesn't make them hounds.

We have a very cool Saluki that comes in to our shop. I'll be honest, I'm not big into scenthounds. We get a lot of Bassetts and they're just too whiny and messy for me. (The ones I know. Don't attack me. LOL!) I can live without the beagles and coonhounds I've met, too. A lot of people find them "cute," but I guess I just don't see it. But I would take the Saluki home with me. I've only met a very few greyhounds and whippets, and they seem like neat dogs, too.

Just about anything on the coonhound spectrum.

I am really not a scent-hound girl. Like, At. All. Some are pretty, but So not the dog for me!
I really like alot of the sight hounds though, and hope to have one someday! Irish wolfhounds, salukis, whippets, greyhounds, maybe borzoi.
