Description  
The pedigree of a foxhound can be traced in some cases as far back as 1800, or over 50 generations, which is one of the longest in the animal kingdom. Foxhounds are lively and very friendly; what other breed of canine could be taken out into the field and still be kept under control - but also be given leeway - for such long periods and in such large numbers? Foxhounds are also fine looking animals, bred by the Master of foxhounds for a purpose and at their happiest when fulfilling this purpose. They are also a very well-balanced breed; possibly because they live in a pack and hunt as their wild ancestors would have done. Specifically with regard to this striking picture, the Cotswold foxhounds have an exceptional nose, because the abundant rock in the Cotswolds makes the ground very dry and the dogs have to compensate accordingly.
