American Foxhound...


A descendant of the English Foxhound, the American Foxhound was developed in the USA. Bred to hunt foxes, deer, and coyotes, these dogs were a favorite with George Washington. The American Foxhound belongs to the collection of dogs referred to as Scent Hounds, which specialise in following the scent or the smell of its quarry. The American Foxhound is affectionate, eager, active, energetic and brave. American Foxhounds generally get along well with children and other dogs but are likely to chase any non-canine pets with their natural hunting instincts.

American Foxhounds are average shedders and should be brushed and combed occasionally to keep the coat in good condition. Grooming is simple and easy with this short-coated breed. You should brush the coat of the American Foxhound around once a week, and make sure that his ear canals are clean and dry. You can also wipe the short, hard coat with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking glossy and in good condition.
