American Foxhound Dog Name Considerations

 When naming your American Foxhound, it’s important to mull over your options.  There are plenty of considerations to keep in mind when naming your new companion.  You may feel inspired by historical facts when naming your pooch, for example, the story of Old Drum, or maybe finding out that George Washington was a breeder of the American Foxhound has inspired your choice. 

You could be inspired by Disney movie, The Fox and the Hound, simply because Copper and Chief are hunting dogs used to hunt foxes, just like the American Foxhound.  You could even consider the names Vixey and Tod, if the foxes that appear in the animated movie inspire you. 

The name Copper can also reference a color, so color could inspire your choice of name. Similar color inspired names include Rusty, Auburn or Cinnamon.  Temperament is another possible area for inspiration, and names like Sport, Breeze and Kylie would certainly be suitable in this case. A name like Lucy or Cookie would also suit your sweet-natured pooch. 

Let’s not forget that the breed was originally bred to hunt, so a name like Bear would be great as a bear is a formidable hunter.  Of course, you could simply name your canine Hunter in this case!
