Colombian Fino Hounds are...
The Colombian Fino Hounds (Sabueso Fino Colombiano) are a rare scent hound who are active, intelligent and a hardworking dog breed. They make passionate hunting buddies and a friendly, affectionate family member. Due to their hunting nature, they can be headstrong while hunting but can work and live well with other dogs and animals.
Colombian Fino Hounds have a traceable history for over 200 years and have adapted to the diverse climates and geographical landscape of Colombia. This breed was developed from hound dogs imported from Europe and North America. They quickly became popular from the upper classes for sporting events to the humble classes to search for food. These hounds are very diverse due to the geographic isolation all over Colombia, and in recent years, they are not only used as hunting dogs, but have grown to make remarkable pets.
Due to Colombia’s geographical diversity, these strong and muscular “howling” hounds have evolved into two different varieties.

Colombian Fino Hound (LARGE)
