The Bruno Jura hound is a domestic dog, developed in the Middle Ages for hunting in the Jura Mountains on the Swiss-French border.

They are found in a variety of colors and have a broad head and heavy wrinkles, which differentiate them from the other Swiss hounds. It is known for hunting fox, hare, and sometimes even small deer. The Bruno Jura Hound is a skilled scent follower and is capable of following the slightest trace of a scent over the rough terrain of the Jura mountains. It needs firm handling if kept solely for companionship.

Its size is similar to that of the Schweizer Laufhund, but it differs in the broadness of its head. It is related to the Saint Hubert Hound. The life expectancy of Bruno Jura hound is 12-13 years. An adult hound can weigh anywhere from 34 to 44 pounds (15.5-20 kg) and is from usually 17 to 23 inches (43-58 cm) tall.
