Foxhound (American) Dog Breed
The American Foxhound has
roots that date back to as early as 1650. In fact, it is one of the
first American dog breeds that arrived from England which was recorded
as an experienced fox chaser. By the mid-1700s, watching these hounds
chase prey became a favorite pastime, especially for the upper class.
The most popular and record-breaking type of Foxhounds stemmed from the bloodline owned by a man named George Washington Mauphin, who is considered to be the “Father” of the breed. His dogs were some of the fastest running Foxhounds ever produced during his time. Other strains of the Foxhounds were created from the Walker Brothers. Some example strains are: Goodman, Trigg, Hudspeth, Calhoun, and July.
The American Foxhound was one of the earliest breeds that the AKC recognized. However, the true number of registrations has always remained low. This is not to say that the animals are not owned in large numbers, but many of these dogs are kept in large quantities by hunters who have no interest in registering their animals.
Personality: The Foxhound was bred to hunt and run great distances. But they also make excellent house pets, even in the absence of hunting activities. Foxhounds are well-mannered and get along with both people and other animals that are in the home. They are very friendly towards most everybody and everything, even strangers. Foxhounds have high energy levels, always ready for a hunt, and make excellent watchdogs.
Taking Care Of Your American
Foxhound: Foxhounds should be maintained in a household which has
plenty of human and canine interaction. This dog should never be left
alone for too long at a time. It is a very social animal that requires
daily exercise with either brisk walks or preferably long jogs.
Foxhounds can also live outside if required, but of course it is always
best to keep them indoors at night with its family. Their coat is easy
to maintain and requires only the occasional brushing to remove excess
