A little about the American Foxhound


The American Foxhound is a kind, sweet-tempered, breed who are good with children and other animals. Their hunting instincts mean they can be easily distracted by a scent so require strong obedience training and a large amount of exercise. 




The American Foxhound is generally a healthy breed with few genetic diseases noted. However, obesity can become a problem if they are overfed and rarely they can develop platelet disorders.
