Rastreador Brasileiro

The Rastreador Brasileiro is also called Urrador and Urrador Americano and is translated as Brazilian Tracker in English. It is a large Brazilian scenthound hunting dog breed. Though initially recognized by FCI in 1967, the entire breeding stock was wiped out due to outbreak of disease and overdose of insecticide. Consequently, the FCI de-listed this dog declaring it extinct. Since then, efforts are underway to re-create this breed from a mix of American Foxhound, Black and tan Coonhound, Petit Blue de Gascogne, English Foxhound and American Bluetick Coonhound.

The Rastreador Brasileiro is a large hunting dog of scenthound type. The dog stands between 24.5 to 26.5 inches and weighs about 50-60 lbs. This breed comes with a flat head, metallic colour yellow eyes, long and pendulous ears and medium size muzzle. It has black or self-colored nose, muscular, thick and slightly arched neck, level topline, powerful and deep chest with well sprung ribs, straight and strong back and muscular loin. It is a short-coated breed with a coarse coat that comes in white (sometimes brown) with blue, chestnut, or black markings.

This breed is still in the development phase and is not recognized by AKC or any other major kennel club.
