|The English Fox Hound is not usually a domestic pet though it makes a good
companion. It is affectionate and has a good temperament but not easy to obedience train.
It has a rugged constitution and gets along well with other dogs. It has a strong instinct
to chase and kill fox-sized animals. Its keen nose and good voice made it ideal for fox
hunting. It maybe two or tri-coloured. It weighs about 25-34 kgs and is 58-69 cms tall.
