About this group
Foxhounds provide the best of both worlds – they are strong, fast and disciplined, but also gentle, friendly and great with small children.
That said, this is very much a working dog, and is one of the few breeds still used in the role they were originally bred for in 19th century England – fox hunting. They are pack animals and have an inbuilt need to hunt, and so are not recommended as pets for anyone who cannot provide them with the environment they require.
The benefits of the foxhound being a pack animal is that they get along well with other animals. They need strong leadership from their human companion and extensive exercise, or they may become destructive. They are not recommended as house pets, with the possible exception of avid joggers, cyclists or hikers looking for an exercise companion. They are a generally healthy breed and are easy to groom.
