The breed tends to get along well with other dogs, as well as cats and other small pets (if raised with them from an early age).

HistoryA fairly recent breed, the Majestic Tree Hound was developed by American breeders by crossing European-type bloodhounds and St. Huberts with big game hounds from the American West. These dogs make great pets, but are best suited to households with hunters that will take them on regular trips.
