Oddly enough, when I lived in downtown Brooklyn I was seeing a lot of Am Foxhounds and "English" Coonhounds. They seem like perfectly lovely dogs, but I have to wonder how they work out in apartments and single family brownstones (no yards to speak of). They were getting pretty popular, though."Just a hound?!" I think a dog like that up here in NY would get adopted in a second. She is gorgeous! I love her -- she looks like a sweetie.
