The Harrier is believed to have descended from the English Foxhounds because they wanted a smaller breed. The Harrier has been used as a hunter since Colonial times. He’s a slower pack dog which means his masters can follow him on foot. He can handle any terrain and has great endurance.
He’s an outgoing, affectionate dog who gets on well with people and other animals. He loves being with his family. He can be any colour. He needs daily exercise but must be kept in a fenced area or on a leash as he will follow his nose and run off if free to do so. He’s intelligent and easy to train. His short coat sheds but regular brushing keeps it to a minimum. He’s 18 – 22 inches in height.
