Has this breed of dog had its day?
There are fears the otterhound, Britain's rarest breed of dog, is on the verge of extinction after just seven puppies were born last year.
While the coronavirus lockdowns sparked record sales of puppies like Labradors and French Bulldogs, the same can not be said for some traditional British species.
Chief among them is the otterhound, one of Britain's oldest breeds that dates back to the 12th century.
