One of the oldest breeds, the Scottish Deerhound was known centuries ago as the Scotch Greyhound, Rough Greyhound, and Highland Deerhound. It wasn’t until the 16th century that it began to be clearly identified as a breed, one that could be owned by no one of lower rank than a duke, a distinction that nearly resulted in the breed’s extinction. A keen sight hound, they were used in the pursuit and killing of deer; these superlative hunting skills are now showcased in lure coursing events. Gentle, quiet, and dignified, these dogs make excellent couch mates when indoors, but outside must be exercised with caution or in fenced areas only due to their high prey drive. The Deerhound’s wiry coat requires little in the way of grooming and its exceptionally tall, thin, bony frame—it can weigh up to 110 pounds—cuts a majestic figure.
