Transylvanian Hound Puppies

The Transylvanian Hound is a purebred dog breed. Also known as the Hungarian Hound or the Transylvanian Scent Hound, this doggo comes from Hungary, dating back to the 9th century. First developed to hunt large game, this breed is courageous, good-natured, and determined. If you want to learn more about Transylvanian Hound puppies, then keep reading. 

Where to get Transylvanian Hound Puppies

You can begin your search for this pup by calling your local animal shelter or breed rescue organization. They might have Transylvanian Hound puppies, adults, or seniors available for adoption.

Most of these dogs have been at these places for a long time, waiting for the right family to come along. So, you can adopt and not shop while still getting a new furry friend. Plus, you’ll provide them with a forever, loving home. Shelby…

On the other hand, if you have your heart set on getting a puppy and want to know where the dog came from, you can go through a reputable breeder. You can begin your search by looking at the AKC Marketplace for ethical breeders.

Luckily, you’ll be able to tell a good breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Health screen and genetically test the parents before breeding to ensure it’s healthy and safe to do so (then get the puppies tested)
  • Have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption
  • Allow the parents and the litter to live in their home as part of the family without the use of kennels (aside from crate training)
  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with all of their vaccinations

In addition, a good breeder will want to meet with you in person to get to know you so you can meet them, the parents, and the litter before deciding on adoption. Also, they’ll be open and honest with you. For instance, they’ll answer all of your questions about the breeder, the breed, the dogs and litter, or the breeding and adoption processes.

So, if you find a breeder that doesn’t do the above, then you’ll want to avoid working with them. For instance, they might be a backyard breeder or a puppy mill, and they don’t breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions. Also, they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding the puppies good homes.

The Cost

The average coat of Transylvanian Hound puppies is between $600 and $800. However, the price can vary depending on a few factors, such as the time of year, the breeder’s location, the breed’s popularity, or the number of puppies in the litter.

Appearance

Transylvanian Hound puppies will grow to be large dogs. For example, they can grow to be about 18 to 26 inches tall and weigh between 55 and 77 pounds. 

Also, they have a short and smooth coat. They don’t typically have any coat markings, but they can have the following coat colors:

  • Black & Tan
  • Black, Tan & White
  • Red & White

Temperament

If you’re looking for a family dog, then this breed might be the right one for you and your family. For example, this doggo is loyal and highly affectionate with its family members. In addition, Transylvanian Hound dogs are excellent around young children, other dogs, and meeting new people.

However, as with all dog breeds, you’ll still need to provide early socialization and training. They’re an excellent watchdog and will bark to alert you of something or someone approaching. Luckily, they’re not aggressive at all, and they’re easy to train. 

Finally, this dog breed has high energy levels. As a result, they won’t be comfortable living in an apartment, and you’ll need to provide them with a bigger house with a fenced-in yard where they can run around to their heart’s content. 

Transylvanian Hound Puppies – Veterinary Needs

As with all dogs, you’ll want to bring this pup to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup. However, you’ll want to bring them to the vet a few times to keep track of their growth and development during their first year. Also, you can keep them up to date with their shots and boosters. 

However, this doggo is relatively a healthy breed. They are known to get the following health issues, though:

  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Elbow Dysplasia

With proper care, this purebred has an average lifespan of about ten to 14 years.

Diet

With your vet’s approval, you can provide high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food. However, you also want to ensure appropriate for their breed size, age, weight, and metabolism. 

Grooming

You won’t need to worry about it too much when it comes to grooming. You can bring this pup to a professional grooming salon about once every three to four months for a good cleaning. Also, you can bathe them at home as needed.

However, they shed and drool a good amount. So, at least two to three times per week, you’ll want to brush their coat and wash their face. It will keep the shedding under control, their coat looking clean, and it’ll also keep their face from getting infections or having an odor. 

Finally, remember to keep up with trimming their nails, cleaning their ears, and brushing their teeth regularly.
