The Scottish Deerhound's antecedents have existed back to a time before recorded history. They would have been kept by the Scots and Picts and used to help in providing part of their diet--mainly hoofed game. They were bred to hunt red deer by "coursing" and "stalking."

The Scottish Deerhound is a breed of hound (a sighthound), once bred to hunt the Red Deer by coursing. They would have been kept by the Scots and Picts. In outward appearance, the Scottish Deerhound is similar to the Greyhound, but larger and more heavily boned. The Deerhound is closely related to the Irish Wolfhound and was the main contributor to the recovery of that breed when it was re-created at the end of the 19th century.
