    no this in the hound group but the breed isnt recognised by the kennel club as they are soo rare and are now only really used for the hunting packs in wales heres a pic of her[​IMG][​IMG]

    HI,

    I live in Wales and I once knew a great many Welsh Foxhounds. I used to ride with the local hunt and we had about 40 dogs.

    While everyone used to be very nervous of these killer dogs I knew them as they really were. Big softies. I even had one that followed me to school frequently.

    I stopped riding long ago and the hunt is banned here now, although some do still ride out as exercise with the dogs and have a mock hunt.

    But the dogs were excellent.

    I don;t have any photos, my dad was obsessed with cine cameras in those days, and the films hae all been lost but I will search for some pics for you.

    Jena.
