A foxhound has a lot of energy and can chase animals over very long distances. The foxhound actually looks a lot like a beagle, but is usually much larger and heavier. The foxhound comes in a variety of colours and colour combinations and has long floppy ears and big brown eyes. Foxhounds have long muzzles and an excellent sense of smell, which is why they’re used for hunting. The foxhound makes a very good family pet and is very loyal and friendly. Foxhounds also have a very loud deep bark but they don’t tend to bark very often. However, the foxhound doesn’t make very good guard dog because they’re too friendly with strangers. The foxhound is especially good with children and so makes a good family pet. Of course, you should never leave a foxhound or any dog alone with small children.
