Hamilton Hound

Hamiltonstovare, Swedish Foxhound


Rectangular, well proportioned, giving impression of great strength and stamina. Tricoloured.

Hamilton Hounds are very easy going, but can be stubborn. They are very patient with children. This breed makes a fantastic hunter as it has a very high prey drive, so caution needs to be taken with small animals. Owners must provide plenty of daily exercise, and be the dog's firm, but calm, confident, consistent pack leader to avoid behavior issues.
