The Bloodhound!

Fun Fact: This wonderful breed has incredible tracking skills! They are able to pick up a scent from only one or two skin cells left behind. While doing so, they are virtually silent! The bloodhound is a stealth tracking animal, they want to ensure that their target does not know they are coming. Their super keen sense of smell is also a helpful tool, some researchers have estimated that the nose of a bloodhound is made up of 230 million olfactory scent receptors, this is 40 times greater than the number in humans.
