Text Appearing Before Image:
THE BAN-DOG, Is a variety of this fierce tribe, not often to be feen atprefent. It is lighter, fmaller, more adlive and vigilant,than the MaflifF, but not fo powerful; its nofe is fmal-ler, and poflefles, in fome degree, the fcent of theHound ; its hair is rougher, and generally of a yellowifli-gray, ftreaked with fliades of a black or brown colour.It does not invai-iably, like the preceding kinds, attack itsadverfary in front, but frequently feizes cattle by theflank. It attacks with eagernefs, and its bite is keenand dangerous. HISTORY OF QUADRUPEDS. 339

Text Appearing After Image:
THE DALMATIAN, OR COACH DOG, {^Le Braqiie de Bengal, BufF.) Has been erroneoufly called the Dant/h Dog; and, by M.BufFon, the Harrier of Bengal; but for what reafon it isdifficult to afcertain, as its incapacity of fcenting is fuffi-cient to deftroy all affinity to any Dog employed in thepurfuit of the Hare. It is common in this country at prefent, and js fre-quently kept in genteel houfes, as an elegant attendant ona carriage.—We do not, however, admire the cruel prac-tice of depriving the poor animal of its ears, in order toencreafe its beauty •, a pi-a£Vice fo general, that we donot remember ever to have feen one of thefe Dogs un-mutilated in that way.
