About this Breed

A Harriers head is long, flat, and wide, with a strong muzzle that is substantial in depth; the lips should cover the lower jaw and help define a sharp square look. The bold forehead accentuates their gentle or alert expression. Teeth should meet in a scissors bite, though level is accepted. Eyes are of medium size, oval, and well-set apart. Darker dogs should have either brown or hazel eyes, while lighter dogs eyes' range from yellow to light hazel. The nose is wide, black, and with well-opened nostrils. Ears are low-set with rounded tips; pendant shaped, and should lie close to the cheeks. In general the head should be in proportion to the rest of the dog. The topline is level, muscular, and should not drop behind the withers. Neck is long with no excess skin; blending smoothly into the forequarters. The front legs may tend to knuckle over slightly, but not exaggerated, while the hind legs are well muscular and only slightly angulated. Feet are round and catlike, with the toes set close together with thick strong pads; front feet turn slightly inwards while the back feet point straight ahead. Ribs are well-sprung, extending to the elbows; the chest is longer that it is wide. The loin is short, slightly arched, and well muscled. They should be slightly longer than tall. The tail is long, carried high (but not curled over the back), tapered to a point, and should be slightly tufted. Overall, the Harrier was built for endurance, rather than speed. The powerful, developed muscles help provide the strength for working long hours on any terrain. In essence, they are really a smaller version of the English Foxhound.
