American Foxhound Dog Temperament
The Foxhound is well-mannered in the home. He gets along best with human or canine companionship. He is a tolerant, amiable and gentle dog, even though he is not very demonstrative. Many are reserved with strangers. He is first and foremost a hunter, ever ready to hit the trail. He needs daily exercise in a safe area. Once on a scent, he will follow gleefully, heedless of commands. This is a dog that likes the outdoors. He bays.
