English Foxhound

English Foxhound


Height: 24-25 inches

Weight: 60-70 lbs.

Life Span: 11-13 yrs.

Breed Group: Scent Hounds

Overview
The fast, lean English foxhound can be a wonderful companion. This breed is gentle, loves children, and gets along with other dogs.

Because of their strong instincts to chase small game, foxhounds are not recommended for households with cats or other small animals. They may bark (a distinctive "yodel") at strangers, but more as a greeting than a threat.

Obedience-training foxhounds can be extremely difficult because they are distracted by scents and have a pack-bonding mentality.

Because English foxhounds retain their hunting-dog instincts, they may bay or bark if they hear other dogs and may roam if not kept in a secured area.

Appearance
The coat is short, dense, and glossy. Its color is black, white, or tan, or any combination of these and various "pieds," which are composed of white and various shades of yellow and tan.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
English foxhounds require only occasional brushing. They need a lot of exercise and a secured, open space in which to run. Always walk English foxhounds on a leash.

Origins
The English foxhound was developed in the 13th century by crossing St. Hubert/bloodhound-type dogs with swift, light hounds, possibly including the greyhound.

Special Alerts
The English foxhound is not suitable for inexperienced dog owners, nor is it appropriate for city or apartment life.
