Hound Group

Hound Group is the name of a breed group of dogs, used by kennel clubs to classify a defined collection of dog breeds, and does not necessarily include all hound-type dogs. Most major English-language kennel clubs include a Hound Group (including The Kennel Club (UK), the American Kennel Club, the Canadian Kennel Club, the Australian National Kennel Council, the United Kennel Club, the Professional Kennel Club, the American Coon Hunters Association, and the New Zealand Kennel Club) although different kennel clubs may not include the same breeds in their Hound Group. The international kennel club association, the Fédération Cynologique Internationale, does not have a Hound Group, and includes most hound-type dogs in Group 6, Scenthounds and related Breeds, and Group 10, Sighthounds.

Famous quotes containing the words hound and/or group:

    Do you not hear me calling, white deer with no horns?
    I have been changed to a hound with one red ear;
    I have been in the Path of Stones and the Wood of Thorns....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    [The Republicans] offer ... a detailed agenda for national renewal.... [On] reducing illegitimacy ... the state will use ... funds for programs to reduce out-of-wedlock pregnancies, to promote adoption, to establish and operate children’s group homes, to establish and operate residential group homes for unwed mothers, or for any purpose the state deems appropriate. None of the taxpayer funds may be used for abortion services or abortion counseling.
    Newt Gingrich (b. 1943)
