Appearance
A large, handsome hound, its front legs are long and very straight-boned. The head is long with a slightly domed, large skull. The ears are broad and pendant, framing the face. The eyes are large and wide-set - either brown or hazel, with a sweet, imploring expression. The ears are wide, flat to the head. The tail is set moderately high with a slight upward curve, but is not turned forward over the back.
 

Temperament
The American Foxhound is a dog that has a good natured disposition, and is a great companion dog and pet in most cases. This is an energetic breed, and a loving and loyal companion that gets on very well with children. These dogs love to explore, and owners should bear this in mind and ensure that the dog is not let off the leash in an unsecured area, as he may run off. These dogs love to be around other dogs and people, but can be protective. With strangers the dog's reaction may vary, and whereas some will be friendly around strangers others may be more reserved. When it comes to smaller animals, these dogs may chase.

This dog is extremely energetic and tireless. It is very important that it gets daily vigorous exercise to prevent extreme indoor restlessness.

 
History
The American Foxhound is directly descended from English hounds brought to America in 1650 and bred over a century later to a French hound sent as a gift by Lafayette to George Washington. Washington ran a breeding program and often mentioned the hounds in his journals. The two breeds, French and English, in combination have produced the American Foxhound. In the seventeenth century, these dogs were used for seeking out Indians. Later, however they became efficient and untiring hunters of wild animals. The American Foxhound has an excellent nose, and is very fast when giving chase.
 
Health
A fairly healthy breed, American Foxhounds are free of many genetic diseases such as hip and bone problems, which plague other large breeds. Gains weight easily, do not overfeed.
