ABSTRACT
Chapter XVI of the book "Dogs and All About Them" is presented. It explores the origin of the Deerhound as a native dog in Scotland in very early times, and it was distinguished as superior in strength and beauty to the hounds of the Picts.

An overview of the dog's general appearance is also presented.
