These cute, rough-coated scent hounds were developed to hunt otters in the 19th century. They were popular pets among hunters until 1978 when there was a dramatic decline in otters, which affected their breed. They are now on the list of Vulnerable Native Breeds and are identified as endangered. There are only 1,000 Otterhounds left in the world. (petMD)
