American Foxhound

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.

They are very friendly dogs, however if a particular dog is allowed to see himself as pack leader to humans he may become protective. This breed can be difficult to housebreak. Be aware, the American Foxhound will take off after an interesting scent if they get a chance.

Foxhounds don't always make good house pets, due to their history as outdoor pack kennel hounds. If you are looking for a pet, whom you are not going to take hunting, try show lines rather than field types. No matter what type you decide on be sure to provide plenty of daily exercise, and be your dog's firm, but calm, confident, consistent pack leader to avoid behavior issues.
