Description: The English Foxhound is a medium-sized dog with a powerful build. The skull is wide, muzzle and neck both long. The ears hang low next to the cheeks. The brow is well-defined and the brown eyes have a sweet, gentle expression. English Foxhounds are friendly and active with a reputation of being bold and passionate hunters.
