If you had to quickly describe the Harrier, one might say they look like a bulked up version of a Beagle. The breed has the timeless look of a working hound that includes long, low-set ears, an adorably cute face, a short, trim coat and compact, muscular build.
The Harrier is a friendly, outgoing breed that loves to be around people and thrives when part of a family. They are excellent with children and other dogs and require a moderate level of exercise. For its history, the Harrier dates back to about 400 B.C. – further than you would think.
