Personality and Behavior
He's a bold and fearless hunter
He has a strong instinct to chase other animals that run away from him
He can be quite loud with his baying
He's not easy to train. You will need patience as he is slower than most to learn obedience commands.
He sheds quite a bit of hair. You'll find some hair stuck to your clothes, couch and carpets.
Grooming / Maintenance
His short coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds you may find yourself brushing it once a week, or more, to minimize the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
