American foxhound Description
  The American Foxhound is similar to its English cousin, but has been bred to be lighter and taller, have a keener sense of smell, and to be even faster in the chase. It is a large, handsome hound with straight-boned and long front legs. Its head is long with a bit of a domed, large skull. Its broad and pendant ears frame the face. The eyes are brown or hazel and are large and wide-set with a sweet, imploring expression. It carries its tail cheerfully with a slight upward curve, like a sickle. The coat is short and hard and can be various colors.
