Their haircut is designed to keep the joints warm while hunting – hips, ankles – and it helps when swimming. Their coats are also very water resistant.

Emmy, Harrier (4 y/o), 2018 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, New York, NY • "They’re one of the oldest breeds recognized by the AKC, but they’re not popular and I don’t know why. They were bred down from the English Foxhounds to be a size that could be followed on horseback or on foot during a hunt. It didn’t matter if you were upper-class or lower-class – you had a Harrier.”
