This breed was named after the town of Halden in southeastern Norway. He is believed to be the product of crosses between local, Swedish, German, and English scenthounds. The standard for the Halden Hound was established in the 1950s. He is virtually unknown outside his native country.

The Halden Hound can withstand cold and is a fast hunter able to chase quarry for long periods at a quick pace. He is not a pack hound. He hunts hare and other plains quarry. Kind and affectionate, he makes a good pet.
