American Foxhound

The American Foxhound (an American dog breed) is one of the rarest canine breeds. His hard coat may be any colour. He is used as a trail hound, a competitive field trial hound, a pack hound or a fox hunter. This requires different characteristics within the dog and so some suit one specific type of job more than others. Some need more speed, others need a louder voice and others also need the ability to work in a pack. George Washington ran a breeding program for the American Foxhound (which is when they originated) and so is known as the Father of the American Foxhound.

This dog breed loves the open air and are better suited to farms and rural areas. However, they can live in smaller areas as long as they get enough exercise. If they’re raised in a home, they’ll be mild mannered and will get along with kids and other animals. It’s easy to care for their short coat and they’re 21-25 inches high.
