<p>Spanish Hounds were already around in the Middle Ages. Alphonso XI of Castille himself described them in a book in the 14th century, as did Argote de Molina (1582) and many other authors.</p>

<p>Spanish Hounds are affectionate and calm animals that display uncommon bravura and valiance on the trail of large game. They are highly specialized in hares, especially blood tracking.</p>

<p>These medium-sized dogs have a beautiful head with long ears, a compact skeletal structure and solid legs. Spanish Hounds have a soft, sad, and noble expression.</p>

<p>Large, long and hanging, supple texture, rectangular, rounded at the tips.</p>

<p>Strong, covered with very short hair forming a small paint brush at the end. At rest, carried lightly curved, reaching below the hock; in action, saber-like.</p>

<p>Dense, short, fine and close, covering the entire body, even between the toes.</p>
