Bagle Hound History

The Bagle Hound is a scent hound that originated in the United Kingdom. The origin of the name “Bagle” is unknown, but is thought to be derived from a Celtic word meaning “fairy man”. The Bagle Hound is a medium-sized scent hound that originated in Great Britain. The dogs were developed from crosses between the Talbot Hound and the Bloodhound. The development of the Bagles was a deliberate attempt to produce a dog with the stamina of the Bloodhound and the tracking abilities of the Talbot. The history of the breed is largely unknown, but some records exist from 1725 to 1880. The early years of the development were overseen by Lord Robert Cecil, the 7th Earl of Exeter.
