Some dog breeds have long ears which serve specific function. Dogs have been bred for many years to serve specific purposes for mankind. Based upon what function they carry out, each dog breed is further separated into different group like sporting, non-sporting, working, hound, terrier, toy, and herding group. A large number of dogs with long ears are categorized as hound dogs, which are a group of dog breeds primarily used for hunting. Here is the list of Dogs that are popular for their long ear.
According to American Kennel Club registration statistics, Beagle is one of the most popular dog breeds in America. Bred to be either 13 or 15 inches tall, they are hunting dogs belonging to the hound group. The smaller dogs of this breed are often used by the hunters to track and hunt rabbits, while taller dogs were produced specifically to track larger game like deer. Due to their history as pack hunters, this breed of dogs prefers the company of humans and other dogs.
Another long-eared dog breed within the hound group, Bloodhound is one of the oldest breeds of dogs that hunt by scent. This breed was actually named for its status as royal and aristocratic; great lengths were taken to keep this breed pure. Unlike the basset hounds, bloodhounds are tall dogs that can weigh between 80 pounds and 110 pounds.
Famous for their exceptionally long ears, Basset Hound is a breed of hunting dog that is originated in France and ideal for the hunters on foot. The basset hounds have a keen sense of smell and gentle dispositions that make this breed a very practical hunting dog either alone or in a pack.
The Black-and-tan coonhound is named for its coloring and impeccable ability to track and tree raccoons. Popular for their persistence, this breed of dog is capable of withstanding the rigors of a hot summer, a viciously cold winter and a painfully rough terrain. This hound group dog breed is one of the few genuinely American dog breeds. This breed was originally bred by the Indian fighters in the 1700s.
This large, drooping ears dog breed was known in the 16th and 17th centuries as Dwarf Spaniels and was often depicted on the laps of Spanish and French noblewomen. These perky dogs get their name from the French word for “butterfly” because its ears resemble the butterfly wings. In the United States, Phalenes (drop-eared) and Papillons (erect-eared) can be born in the same litter and they are shown together as one dog breed.
English Cocker Spaniel
The long and silky ears of English Cocker Spaniels reach their nose. They are active sporting dogs, and their compact, solid body practically vibrates with enthusiasm and energy, particularly when at work in the field. The cockers are descended from the original spaniels of Spain and they were used to hunt in the dense cover, flushing and retrieving game.
Pembroke Welsh Corgi
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi has a fox-shaped face with erect, big ears set on top of its head. They are one of the most agreeable small house dogs, as well as a passionate competitor in many dog sports, including herding, conformation and obedience. The early progenitor of Pembroke Welsh Corgi is said to have had a similarity to the old Schipperkes, and sprang from same family that includes the Pomeranian, Keeshond, Samoyed, Norwegian Elkhound, Chow Chow and Finnish Spitz.
