The robust, muscular Harrier is an English pack hound originally bred to hunt hare. An active scenthound, the Harrier requires moderate exercise daily to maintain his strength and stamina. This inquisitive, hunting breed should be kept on a leash or in a fenced area for protection while exercising. His short, thick coat requires minimal grooming. Sociable and loyal, the Harrier thrives on being close to people and other dogs.

The Harrier was bred down in size from the English Foxhound. Sir Elias de Midhope developed the first pack of Harriers, the Penistone, in England in 1260.
