What is a "hound"?

A hound is a type of hunting dog that is specifically bred and trained for tracking and pursuing game, typically using their keen sense of smell. Hounds are known for their ability to pick up and follow scent trails, often for long distances, in order to locate and chase down game animals such as deer, rabbits, or other small game. Hounds come in various breeds, each with its unique characteristics, including scent hounds, sight hounds, and coursing hounds. They are often used in hunting, search and rescue, and law enforcement activities. Hounds are known for their keen sense of smell, endurance, and stamina, making them well-suited for tracking and chasing game in diverse terrain and weather conditions.
