The Russian hound dog is quiet and affectionate. They're height is around 26-32 inches tall and they weigh from 75 lb.-105 lb. for a male, and a female weighs 55 lb.-85 lb. These dogs are quiet, affectionate, and proud. They shed so you need to brush them daily. They need to be walked daily too and if you are keeping them in your backyard you will need a tall fence. They live for about
11-13 years. If you have rambunctious children you shouldn't get this dog. They only have eye concerns, make sure to keep their eyes clean and make sure fur doesn't get matted there. They should be good with any climate.
