According to the American Kennel Club, hounds were traditionally used for their hunting skills, a trait they keep to this day as they love chasing small wildlife like squirrels or rabbits.

Shelter workers say 8-year-old Harley loves being outside, walks well on a leash and has very nice manners. He is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. His adoption fee is $200.
