Hounds generally have a strong sense of sight and a strong sense of smell, powerful legs, strong stamina (ability to run for long periods of time), and long (often droopy) ears.

Hounds were originally bred in Europe, particularly in France and Great Britain as part of big game hunting. A hound can be seen in Disney's popular animated film "The Fox and the Hound."
