  • a.k.a. Tiroler Bracke, "descended from ancient Austrian hounds, the Tyrolean was bred specifically for hunting over the snows and under the sun of the mountainous Tyrol.... Muscular, extremely fast, with the finest sense of smell, the Tyrolean hound fits perfectly into its milieu. It can be used either for tracking or for hunting. Due to its moderate size, it is easily transportable to the hunting site." (Simon & Schuster's Guide to Dogs, 1980) "This dog may be fiiine, but this is some of the worst writing I've ever seen." (Chained_Bear, 2007)
