Other name(s) Hare dog, Harehound Average life expectancy: around 13 years Notes and advice Its name comes from the English word hare, which means “hare”.
It seems to have been obtained a long time ago, thanks to the crossing between the Greyhound, the Bulldog and the Fox-Terrier. More recently, it has certainly experienced the influence of the Foxhound, as shown by its morphological characteristics.
He is an excellent game hunter, specializing in hare and fox hunting. Excessive specialization, however, made its dissemination very difficult, especially outside the borders of Great Britain. In terms of character, the Harrier is a happy, clever, lively dog, full of energy and at the same time very affectionate, especially with children. Like all hounds, however, he is rather stubborn. This is a dog that needs to go out often and get plenty of exercise.
