Physical Description and Size
The ideal height for the bitch is 58cm and should weigh up to 34kg, while the male is normally 69cm and weighs up to 39kg often or not they are simular size to labs,



Temperament
Active, friendly, and extremely alert, these dogs make very affectionate pets. Even in the pack environment they are always friendly to humans and tend to greet each person with a wagging tail.



Dog Care
Being short coated they are easy to keep clean using either a hand-grooming glove or a leather to remove any dirt from the coat. They need exercise on a daily bases or they can become bored but in the house after exercise will be happy to just 'hang out' without fuss. They do however possess a very powerful roaming instinct so training them to come when called is a priority from an early age. The Foxhound is an ideal companion for those wanting the challenge of training a smart and willing companion. Or those who want to take part in k9 activies such as agility.
Although bred to live as part of a pack, these loving animals do make affectionate house pets and will get on well with any other animals in the home with training as for any dog.
IDEAL OWNER/S
These happy hounds will fit in with people in most situations so long as they are given plenty of love, affection and exercise. These dogs will be happiest when given a sizeable backgarden to explore and taken for a good walk every day. A ideal owner should be willing to put the time in with this breed as they are clever and sociable. They would enjoy the mental work dog training classes would bring them.


Health Issues and Life Expectancy
The average lifespan of a Foxhound is 12 years but, with good care and nutrition, can live up to 14 years of age. health problems in foxhounds are rare, with really old age slowing these hounds down,
