Note: If you have this breed, or know   anyone who does, please send a good profile photograph of the Dog (without humans in the background). We shall publish it on this page with credits. You can send it either by e-mail or post.

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.

Rikki won two CACIBs and 4 BOBs in the recently concluded FCI-KCI show at Madras. 2) Ch.Geena from the Ooty Hunt Club Sire : Imp UK from a Hunt. They are endearing but energetic dogs, who need plenty of patience and a large fenced yard to be able to run freely. They are capable of clearing a fence of 5 feet. Certainly a dog for people who with large spaces, have the time and energy to cope with a high energy dog. Puppies Available Now! Click Here to View Litter Box, Pictures and details.
