The Bloodhound developed a little before the 12th century around Constantinople. Now we know the area as Turkey. Bloodhounds have always been seen as the blessed dog with the nose. There is no other dog on the planet that can pick up a scent like the Bloodhound. Since the native food supplies would be from a seaport environment, they would eat a lot of ocean fish, pork, goat, wheat, brown rice, high carbohydrate vegetables and fruits. We would recommend commercial food with a blend of wheat, brown rice, avocado and poultry. I would avoid beef by-products, soy beets, lamb or white rice.
