An incredibly friendly and playful breed, the Harrier is a loving pack dog that craves being a part of a group. They are great with kids and other dogs, but need supervision when in the company of smaller animals, as their hunting instincts may kick in. They are energetic dogs and require plenty of exercise, as well as a daily pack walk, in order to become well adjusted. Being a pack dog, they require a solid leader, otherwise they may become unruly.
The Harrier can be seen in the same types of coloration as the Foxhound -- they can be black, white and tan, red and white, black and tan, tricolor black, tan and white, lemon and white, tan, open-markings with lots of white, and white.
