The Hamiltonstovare was bred in the frigid Scandinavian climate of northern Sweden. The lineage of the Hamiltonstovare includes the German hound as well as the English Foxhound. Count Adolf Hamilton is recognized as the original breeder of the Hamiltonstovare. Originally called the Swedish hound, it was renamed to honor Count Adolf Hamilton The Hamiltonstovare was bred to be an endurance hunter for fox hunting and is not suited for larger game hunting. This high energy dog requires substantial daily exercise and early training with a firm hand. While great with families and small children, the Hamiltonstovare should not engage in strength games such as tug of war or they will become aggressive.

Historically, the Hamiltonstovare most likely survived on a diet of hunting spoils and barn vermin. The Hamiltonstovare is mostly found in Great Britain and northern Europe but has recently been introduced to the United States and accepted into the American Kennel Club Foundation Stock Service. While the Hamiltonstovare is gregarious and friendly, it does have a stubborn streak and will often have to be cajoled to follow commands. The Hamiltonstovare gained notoriety with its appearance in the movie "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". Very active, the breed has a high endurance level and is an avid hunter. The Hamiltonstovare is the most popular breed in Sweden and generally doesn't have to hunt much past the family kitchen for a full meal. Given their reduced activity levels compared to their ancestors, the Hamiltonstovare may benefit from a carefully controlled calorie intake to prevent becoming overweight.
