Interesting that the only time we see images of bloodhounds, also known as St. Hubert hounds, being used in the novel is in the mid to late 1900's.

I'm sure some would say that the original bloodhound looked very similar to what we would call the Siberian or Cuban bloodhound. But if you look back far enough you will see that working and pedigree bloodhounds have are more similar if not the same look as the current version.

Theodore Roosevelt speaks negatively about the cuban bloodhound breed. "There have been instances in which five or six of the big so-called bloodhounds of the southern states - not pure bloodhounds at all, but huge, fierce, ban-dogs with a cross of the ferocious Cuban Bloodhound, to give them good scenting powers-have by themselves mastered the cougar and the Black Bear. Such instances occurred in the hunting history of my own fore-fathers on my mother's side, who during the last half of the eighteenth century, and the first half of the present century, lived in Georgia, and over the border in what are now Alabama and Florida. These big dogs can only overcome such foes by rushing in in a body and grappling all together; if they hang back, lunging and snapping, a cougar or bear will destroy them one by one."  Hunting the Grisly and Other Sketches: by Theodore Roosevelt
