Canis ISSN: 2398-2942 Foxhound (English) Introduction Biological Data 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'.
