Species group: Mixed Breeds
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.
All mixed breeds are individuals but if you have a dog that appears to be mostly American Foxhound, you can expect an active, athletic dog with a cooperative outlook as long as you give it plenty of opportunities to exercise and explore interesting scents.
Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the American Foxhound mix is going to be a large, energetic hound.
Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, the American Foxhound mix is probably going to be a hardy endurance hunting dog who loves to get out in the outdoors with you.
