About American Foxhound
Country of Origin, History of the breed
This marvelous Foxhound is
directly descended from English hounds brought
to America in 1650 and bred over a century
later to a French hound sent as a gift by
Lafayette to George Washington. The two breeds,
French and English, in combination have produced
the American Foxhound.

Description of the Dog
A large, handsome hound, its front
legs are long and very straight-boned. The head
is long with a slightly domed, large skull. The
ears are broad and pendant, framing the face. The
eyes are large and wide-set - either brown or hazel,
with a sweet, imploring expression. The ears are
wide, flat to the head and its tail is carried cheerfully
with a slight upward curve, like a sickle. The coat
is short, hard and harsh and comes in black, tan
and white tricolors or piebald marking of tan or
lemon on a white background.
Temperament of the Dog
The American Foxhound is sweet,
affectionate, gentle and loving at home, but also
a brave and intense warrior in the hunt. They are
excellent with children and get along well with
other dogs because of their pack-hunting background,
but should not be trusted with non-canine pets.
Some are very friendly with strangers; some are
protective. The American Foxhound will take off
after an interesting scent if possible. They have
a melodious bark.
How active is the breed?
The American Foxhound needs a great
deal of exercise or he can become restless and destructive.
They need to be taken on a long daily walk at least
once a day, however two or three times is ideal.
It can run for miles without getting exhausted.
This breed can be difficult to housebreak.
Better suited to an indoor
or outdoor lifestyle?
Foxhounds are easy to live with
and thrive as members of a family; however, they
are not ideal apartment dogs due to their history
as outdoor pack kennel hounds and shouldn't be left
alone indoors for extended periods of time. They
are very active indoors and do best with acreage.
The smooth, short-haired coat of
this average shedder is easy to groom. It should
be combed and brushed with a firm bristle brush,
and shampooed only when necessary.
A minor health risk in American
Foxhounds is thrombocytopathy, or platelet disease.
While dysplasia was largely unknown in Foxhounds,
it is beginning to crop up occasionally, along with
some eye issues. Overfeeding these dogs can easily
cause them to gain weight.
