Introduction

General information

  • Originated in Britain, specifically for hunting. The strong hunting instinct remains today.
  • Affectionate, gentle and even tempered, especially with other dogs, this breed is not often kept solely as a pet.
  • Its solid voice also makes it a good guard dog.
  • Kept principally in the UK by hunt kennels for the hunting of foxes. Hunting men call the breed 'hounds', never dogs, and the tails 'sterns'.
