English Foxhound - Guide to English Foxhounds

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.

The Masters of Foxhounds Association's well documented records make these dogs the longest pedigreed breed. Their published stud books indicate the English Foxhound's roots date back before 1800 in Great Britain.

The English Foxhound has always been in used in packs for fox hunting on horseback - the English fashion of riding to hounds. It is believed this breed was developed by crossing with other hounds and then with the Greyhound, the Bulldog, and the Fox Terrier.
