The Deerhound's coat is wiry, harsh, shaggy and roughly 3-4 inches long (ideal for a cold damp climate like Scotland). It is a low maintenance coat requiring no trimming. A quick brushing once or twice a week and a bath now and then is adequate. The Deerhound comes in a variety of colors: black, dark blue-gray, gray, brindle, yellow, sandy-red, and red-fawn with black points. The most commonly seen colors, however, are the darker ones.
-I am hardy enough to live outdoors but I'd rather be inside with my family
-if you want a big watchdog, get a German Shepherd or a Tibetan Mastiff
-I love to chase critters but will refrain from chasing those small critters who are members of my family
