ENGLISH FOXHOUND



The English Foxhound has been known for nearly a thousand years as a tireless fox hunter. A stocky hound with a keen sense of smell, the English Foxhound has survived misguided outcrosses through the years in an attempt to improve its speed. Fanciers finally used crosses to the St. Hubert hound to bring back the nose, and it has since flourished. Since it seemed to be a favorite of artists throughout the years, there is good evidence that today's English Foxhound looks much the same as it did several centuries ago.
