The Hamiltonstoevare, also known as Hamiltonstövare, Hamilton Hound, Swedish Foxhound, originated in Sweden, where they have always been highly regarded for their hunting skills and abilities. They share a common ancestry with English Foxhounds, Harriers and other German hunting dogs, from which this handsome dog was created. They were bred to hunt alone rather than in packs, although they are often seen working in pairs. As such, they generally get along well with other dogs, but since they are descended from hunting, they have a high prey drive.
