Fun facts about "rebound hound" Dennis Rodman and actual hounds:
  • Hounds come in many shapes, sizes and colors. So did Dennis Rodman's hair.
  • Some hounds are known for their loud, braying barks. Rodman is known for his loud, braying outfits.
  • Some hounds are called sighthounds, and track prey using their speed to keep it in sight. Judging by the sight of some of the photos of Rodman, he may have been using speed and lord knows what else.
  • Some hounds are called scenthounds, and track prey using their sense of smell. It's a fair bet that Rodman would be easy to find by his scent.
  • Hounds and other dogs are sometimes sent to nursing homes to spend time with people who are shut-ins or have dementia. Rodman recently visited North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, who falls into both of those categories.
  • Hounds sometimes work as a team to wear out game. Rodman starred in "Double Team" with Jean-Claude Van Damme, wearing out audiences.
