Hello! Thank you for your interest in purchasing a bloodhound puppy from Knepp’s Bloodhounds! Bloodhounds are known for their amazing sense of smell, their large size, their intelligence, and those beautiful wrinkles and long ears that we all love. The AKC Bloodhound Breed Standard lists the average size of males as 110 lbs and 100 lbs for adult females.
Bloodhounds are very large dogs, they do slobber a lot, they shed, they have a hound smell, they are VERY stubborn, VERY destructive if bored, they are very active and can be hyper. Bloodhounds are known for being hard to housebreak, sometimes they are not fully house broken until they are 6 months old. They do not start to calm down until they are about 3 years old. Bloodhounds need a large amount of exercise every day.
Bloodhounds can be possessive over food, toys, etc. resource guarding is an unfortunately common thing with the breed and it is something you will have to always stay on top of.
It is extremely hard to have a bloodhound without some type of fence, they WILL NOT stay in your yard or on your property without one.
Bloodhounds are also affectionate, loyal, sensitive, intelligent, they are comedians and will make you laugh all day, they have hearts of gold if treated with love! Bloodhounds are not for everyone... but once you are owned by and love a bloodhound, it is hard to have just one!!!!!!
Please answer the following questions. These questions are meant to help us determine if a Bloodhound will be a good fit for your home, there are no right or wrong answers. Our goal is to provide each puppy with a loving forever home, these questions will help us to do that! We look forward to learning more about you! Thank you!!
