American Foxhound Information

American FoxhoundThis sweet, even-tempered dog is one of America’s native breeds and was originally used for competitive field trials, fox hunting or to serve as a pack hound. You can count on him to have a great sense of smell and to bay or howl with his booming voice.

Foxhounds were born to run and require lots of exercise. Luckily, this breed is naturally healthy with fewer issues than other dogs. Independent and stubborn, it may however require extra time and practice to make your training stick.
