“Scottish Deerhounds are hunting dogs, as the name implies. Mr. Bennet could have used his dog for hunting several different types of animals. Of all the breeds that the director could have chosen for the Bennet’s family pet, this particular choice makes a statement about the Bennet’s position in society. While some people may have thought that the Bennets look shabby, or not wealthy, relative to other adaptations, this breed is one more illustration of their status and some measure of wealth.”
