There are few Scottish Deerhounds in the globe. Scottish Deerhounds, which resemble Irish Wolfhounds, developed in Scotland's hills. This dog is famous for hunting deer. This dog breed was once a noble companion to Scottish chieftains.

Shaggy-coated Scottish Deerhounds are tall and slender. This breed has been important in Scottish history and is gentle and peaceful. In the 18th and 19th centuries, Scottish Deerhounds nearly died out. 

In the late 19th century, a few breed aficionados restored the Scottish Deerhound. They're still scarce, but not extinct. 

Otterhounds are another endangered breed. You may never have heard of this dog. Almost extinct, the Otterhound is rarer than the white rhino. There are fewer than 1,000 Otterhounds worldwide.
