As their name suggests, English Foxhounds have always been used to hunt foxes, working in tandem with the huntsmen on horseback.
English Foxhounds are powerful, well balanced and clean-cut dogs that are archetypical of all large European hounds.
Bursting with energy and stamina, which allows them to run for hours at a time, these dogs were born to hunt, but they are nevertheless friendly and not aggressive.
