Drever is a breed of dog with a history dating back to the 1800s. Interestingly enough, it received its name from a contest in the 1940s. However, this dog’s name isn’t what makes it such a remarkable breed. This pup is known for its ability to help humans hunt wild game, including hares, foxes, and even deer, due to its stamina. However, this dog is even more than that in terms of its disposition and adaptability.

Description

You may notice a slight resemblance between the Westphalian Dachsbracke and the Drever, though this isn’t surprising. The Drever is distantly related to the Dachsbracke. The Drever was a combination of Dachsbracke and other breeds to adapt it to the Swedish terrain and hunting. Eventually, the Drever gained popularity in countries such as Finland and Norway.

This breed has stout yet muscular legs but can move gracefully and swiftly. All of these traits make it an excellent hunting breed. However, they’re excellent companions for non-hunters as well.

Male Drevers are slightly taller, but on average, this breed gets between 12 and 15 inches in height. Most often, this dog weighs 35 to 40 pounds.

The dog may have any of the following colors:

  • Red
  • Brown
  • White
  • Sable
  • Tan
  • Brindle
  • Black

Personality

Despite being known for its keen sense of smell, perseverance and strength, the Drever is a family dog. They get along well with children and other pets, even dogs of various breeds. They’re known for their loyalty, alertness, and diligence.
