Foxhoodle History

The Foxhound is a scent hound of the harrier type developed in England. The Foxhound was a standard fixture in the English countryside until the mid 1950s, after which their numbers dwindled. The breed was saved from extinction in the early 1970s when a concerted effort was made to re-establish the foxhound by breeding with Greyhounds and Beagles. Today the Foxhound is enjoying a resurgence in popularity, and is among the most popular of all hound breeds.
