  • Overview:

    American Foxhounds are good-natured, low-maintenance hounds who get on well with kids, dogs, even cats, but come with special considerations for prospective owners. They are closely associated with Revolutionary heroes and the rolling estates of old Virginia. American Foxhounds do tend to shed a good amount of hair, but weekly brushing will decrease shedding.
