I wanted to make a breed that EA didn't cover, and that is Finnish Hound.

This breed is really close to my heart, cause we have one mix breed female in our family, and also used to have one pure breed before she died in respective age of 18. Hani (means honey), is a 11 year old lady, and she is very dear to me. Here is a picture of her:

Honey, is a female Finnish Hound. She is very kind and loyal. She loves spending time with the family, but is also a very good hunting dog. Her traits are:
  • Hunter
  • Non-destructive
  • Loyal

Honey should also breed very nice puppies, at least if the genetics are inherited like they were in the Sims 2. I laid so many custom paint layers on her, that there definitely is not a dog like her. I also took some reference pictures of the breed in google images, you can see them in the attachments. Honey is a female dog, so she is not as muscular as the male dog, and her nose is also not so square when viewed from the side. It was really quite hard to find a nice reference of the female. The coat in this breed is also very variating, all though same features, black, white and brown are found in every individual. The markings just change place and size. You can do a google search yourself to see how many different looks this breed has!

Little bit about the breed in general:

The coat of the Finnish Hound is short, dense and coarse to the touch. The coat pattern is tricolor with tan, a black saddle and small white markings on head, feet, chest and tail tip. Height is commonly 20-30 inches (52-76cm) and weight 45-70 pounds (20-31kg).

The Finnish Hound is friendly, calm and never aggressive. It is energetic in the hunt and is a versatile tracker. It works independently and pursues the quarry with passionate barking.

Finnish Hounds are energetic working dogs with great stamina. They need long, brisk daily walking, and plenty of running and playing free. Life expectancy is about 12 years.

The smooth, short haired coat is easy to maintain. The brushing can be done with a firm bristle brush, and dry shampoo may be used occasionally if needed. The coat does not need bathing unless extremely dirty. Finnish hounds are average shedders.

The Finnish Hound was a result of a breeding programme in the 1800's, which involved French, German and Swedish hounds. The goal was to develop a hound dog that could work on hilly terrain and in deep snow. The Finnish Hound has become Finland's most popular dog breed. Although the breed is very popular in Finland and Sweden, it is quite uncommon elsewhere.

I hope that you like this breed, I'm sure I'm going to have lots of fun playing with her, and breeding puppies <3

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
