The Drever is a purebred dog from the country of Sweden. Loyal, hardworking and alert, these puppies have some of the best qualities of any dog around.Drevers go by another name, which is Swedish Dachsbracke. Despite being from the country of Sweden, you may be able to find this purebred dog at your local shelter or at breed-specific rescues that are nearby. Remember it is always best to adopt and not buy. These hard-working dogs can make excellent flat dogs for active urban dwellers; although, with their high energy, they are more suited to larger homes with yards where they can run. These puppies can get along well with single person households or larger families. If you want an alert, loyal puppy that won’t leave your side, the Drever may be the perfect dog breed for you.


The coat colours of the Drever are mainly brindle, fawn, red and tricolour. They may also have sable or white markings. Their coat is easy to groom. Drevers were bred to be trackers for hunters, but they are very affectionate with their owners and love to cuddle if they are indoors. They can be good watchdogs and will bark at the first sign of what they perceive to be trouble. Drevers have high energy levels. Make sure your dog gets at least one good walk of half an hour to an hour a day, with some active play sessions and shorter walks mixed in.Drevers are not naturally fond of other animals and may prefer to be the lone pet in the house. However, many Drevers get along well with other dogs, so it all depends on training, socialisation and the luck of the draw.


The Drever is a purebred dog originating from the country of Sweden. Drev means “to hunt” in Swedish, and hunting was what these dogs did best. Technically they are a smaller version of the Westphalian Dahsbracke, a small-sized German hound that was imported to Sweden in 1910. The Drever is a short-legged type of dog used to drive game to the shotgun. It was bred to track and drive animals such as foxes, deer and other wild animals towards the hunters. They were officially named in 1947, and in 1953 they were recognised as a Swedish breed. Not much else is known about the history of the Drever. Although the Drever breed could be considered rare outside the country of Sweden, some have ended up in shelters or in the care of rescue groups. If you decide this is the breed for you, consider adopting it. Search local shelters or rescue groups for the Drever breed and help find homes for these dogs.
