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 picture, The Duke of Beaufort's foxhounds are noted for their stamina, toughness and size and their bloodline is to be found in many leading kennels throughout the world.
