Wallpaper Description:

Country of Origin: The roots of the American Foxhound can be traced back to 1650, when hounds bred to hunt foxes by smell were first imported from England by Robert Brooke. Descendants of Brooke’s dogs were bred with French Foxhounds which had been given as a gift from Lafayette to George Washington, creating the prototype of the modern breed. Over the next century, the American Foxhound became increasingly popular in the south, bred to chase deer and catch and kill foxes alone. They became taller, faster, and distinct from the English Foxhound. Several strains were bred to specialize as runners, pack hounds, or show dogs, such as the Walker, July, and Trigg. Pack dogs are the prototypical American Foxhound; they are fast runners and great jumpers with high stamina. Today, the American Foxhound is more popular as a working pack animal than a registered show dog. The American Foxhound is the state animal of Virginia.
Though traditionally not a house pet and highly independent, the American Foxhound behaves well in the home and is easy to live with. American Foxhounds are tolerant, friendly, and gentle. They are intelligent enough to open some gates and doors and overcome other obstacles. American Foxhounds do not bark frequently, but they have a loud, deep, melodious bark.
The American Foxhound is at its best with plenty of human companionship, and prefers to have other canines around. It is very sociable, and should not be expected to live alone, although it is usually reserved around strangers. American Foxhounds get along very well with children of all sizes. They are usually too friendly to make good watchdogs!
