Harrier Dog Breed
Personality and Traits
They are noted for their intelligence combined with an inquisitive nature. As such, they are apt to wander off following the trail of anything that gets their attention. That being the case, it is an important precaution to have a securely fenced yard to keep them safe.
As a family pet, the Harrier is a loving companion that enjoys being around his family pack and may become quite vocal if left alone too long.
Appearance, Coat And Care
Weight: 48-60 lbs.
Color variations: All recognized Hound colors with tri-color being the most common.
The Harrier's coat is short and hard with a glossy appearance. Grooming needs are are easily handled with occasional brushing to remove loose hair. Shedding is about average.
Hip and elbow dysplasia are two orthopedic conditions that have cropped up occasionally in this breed. Another is a few reports of epilepsy.
If you want to get a puppy, it would be a good idea to ask the breeder if the parents were tested and cleared for these orthopedic conditions. A responsible breeder should be able to explain the testing results and be very forthcoming in providing a certificate to substantiate the tests.
Can be a barker if left alone too long in cramped conditions such as an apartment.
Caution and supervision is recommended with any breed of dog whenever children are interacting with pets.
