ORIGIN

The English Foxhound breed was developed in the late 1700s in the United Kingdom from the breeding of the Greyhound, Bulldog, and Fox Terrier. They are the original of the two foxhound breeds, the other being the American Foxhound. The breed was used for pack fox hunting and to be a family companion.

DESCRIPTION

The English Foxhound breed has a more heavier-build than their American Foxhound counterpart. Their coat is short, dense, hard, and glossy and comes in tri-color and lemon & white. The ears are set low and lie close to the cheeks. The muzzle is a moderate length and the nose is wide.

TEMPERAMENT & TRAINING

English Foxhounds enjoy spending a lot of their time outdoors, they are considered a very active breed and require plenty of exercise, both mentally and physically. If not, they can become destructive when bored. Like most hunting breeds, they are extremely good with children. Due to their pack hunting origins, they also get along with other dogs. They will respond well to firm obedience training and if they are properly socialized, the Foxhound can make a great companion for an avid hunter or someone who loves to spend time outdoors.
