The American Foxhound Traits

The American Foxhound of the Hound Group just like his cousin, the English Foxhound were both bred for hunting foxes by scent. A full grown male of this breed weighs between 65 and 75 pounds and a full-grown female weighs between 45 and 65 pounds. The legs of this breed are very long and straight bone and their chest is rather narrow. It has a large, domed skull and a long muzzle. The ears are wide and low set. Their eyes are Brown or Hazel in color and are large and wide set. Their coats are short and harsh, which looks very similar to a Beagle’s coat but this breed is a lot taller and larger than a Beagle.

Their Personality

The American Foxhound as with all hounds needs constant socialization and careful training. This breed needs a lot of exercise or they will find ways to keep themselves entertained, which ends up being very destructive behavior. They are sweet, kind, loyal and very loving in a household environment. This is an intelligent breed and they can figure out how to open gates and scale small fences. These dogs should never be allowed to be off the leash; they are not street savvy and will follow scents into the road. They do not make good watchdogs because of their breeding; any aggressive behavior by the hound was bred out of the breed. Went on this scent, they are said to give “voice” to locate them while they are following the prey. This breed can be hard to train because of their independent nature.

Wellness Worries

The American Foxhound of the Hound Group properly maintained, the lifespan of this breed is generally 10 to 13 years of age. Like all purebreds they do have a few health problems, so before you purchase one of these towns you will need to research them. They tend to have fewer health problems and other purebreds.
