From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dumfriesshire Black and Tan Foxhounds were a pack of foxhounds kennelled at Glenholme Kennels, Kettleholm, near Lockerbie until they were disbanded in 2001. They were established by John Buchanan Jardine[1] after the First World War. The hounds are believed to have originally been created by crossing bloodhound/Gascoigne bleu/foxhound. They were larger than standard foxhounds and were uniquely black and tan. These large hounds were also crossed with the Dumfriesshire otterhounds during the foundation of the otterhound pack[2]. This was disbanded in 1978 after the ban on otter hunting.

Dumfriesshire foxhounds starred as bloodhounds in The Thirty Nine Steps (1978 film) with Robert Powell which was partly filmed in the Kettleholm area.
