Chase-Dogs are dogs that have been used or bred by longpaws for hunting. It pertains to a more broad range of breeds such as Spaniels[1] and Whippets,[1] especially mutts.[2]


The term is broader, and so dogs under this category cannot be defined by distinct characteristics other than being efficient hunters, having been bred for the job. For example, Dart is described as a chase-dog, but is also described as a smaller swift-dog.[3]


There is currently no lore behind the term Chase-Dog other than being a name describing hunting breeds.
