Albino bloodhound

The albino bloodhound is a breed of dog with an exceptional sense of smell and tracking ability that is also suffering from albinism, resulting in pure white fur, pale skin and pink eyes.

The Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures keeps some albino bloodhounds around to be used for tracking Nogtails (FB).



The bloodhound is a large scent hound believed to be descended from hounds once kept at the Abbey at Saint-Hubert, Belgium, and was originally bred for hunting deer and wild boar. It has been used to track people since at least the Middle Ages and many law enforcement agencies all over the world (including the Wizarding World) keep bloodhounds to help in their work.
