What saint is associated with the Bloodhound dog breed?
The St. Hubert hound was, according to legend, first bred ca. 1000 AD by monks at the Saint-Hubert Monastery in Belgium; its likely origins are in France, home of many of modern hounds. Whether they originated there, or what their ancestry was, is uncertain, but from ca. 1200, the monks of the Abbey of St Hubert annually sent several pairs of black hounds as a gift to the King of France. Charles described the 'true race' of the St Hubert as black, with red/tawny marks above the eyes and legs usually of the same colour.
