Foxhounds have a strong sense of smell and are used for hunting game, such as foxes, in packs, usually accompanied by human handlers on horseback. They are typically friendly, sociable, and outgoing dogs that get along well with people and other dogs. Foxhounds require regular exercise and mental stimulation to keep them physically and mentally healthy. They are known for their vocal nature and may be prone to baying and howling. Foxhounds are best suited to experienced dog owners who understand their hunting instincts and can provide them with ample exercise, mental stimulation, and proper training.
