The Tiroler Bracke is an Austrian dog breed recognized by the FCI ( FCI Group 6, Section 1.2, Standard No. 68 ).

Origin and history

The Tyrolean bracke, like all bracken breeds, presumably descends from the Keltenbracke . Maximilian I is said to have used dogs of this type for hunting as early as 1500. Pure breeding began in Tyrol around 1860 , a standard was drawn up in 1896 and it was officially recognized in 1908.


Dense stick hair with an undercoat and a size up to 50 cm, with a weight of up to 22 kg characterize this dog. There are two colors of this breed:

  • Red lump: red, deer-red or red-yellow.
  • Black and red stroke: Black coat or saddle with red, usually not sharply defined burn on the legs , chest, stomach and head.

The ears are medium-sized, wide, set high, rounded at the bottom.

With both varieties, white markings are allowed on the chest and paws.
