Buckfield Hound-Can you describe the thoroughbred Buckfield hound and tell its color?
I regret that I cannot give you a description of this strain of foxhound. I understand that they originated in Buckfield, Maine, hence the name. Very few of the many strains of American Foxhounds differ so much from the standard of medium size, black and white and tan hound that they could be distinguished by description. Some strains are larger than others; some are faster; others differ somewhat in color, but I doubt that there is so much difference in any of the strains that anybody, not knowing anything about a certain dog, could tell what strain he is, whether a Buckfield, Henry , July or one of the many others. If any reader of this can point out distinct differences in each strain of foxhound so that we can tell them apart we would be pleased to hear from him.
