歷史和用途 : When otters in England began preying on fish in the rivers and streams, the English used the Otterhound to solve the problem. Although otter hunting is now banned, the breed still exists. His origins are somewhat shrouded in mystery, but many believe the breed originated somewhere in France and is similar to their Vende hound. Otterhounds first arrived in the United States around 1900.
