    To run what? Fox, coons, rabbits, what? Question is too ambiguous.

      Basset hounds make great lion dogs, and treeing walkers will cork screw a rabbit right into the ground.

        Ah dunno.

        Golden Retrieverz (Swamp Collies) izza bout 1/5 Bloodhound.

        They wuz bred in becuz people believed they had great scenting ability.

        Reckon they cain't be too bad.

          Since you did not mention the quarry you'll be chasing, you may want to check out the Huckleberry Hound. Those were bred for all-around hunting and they do their best chasing on a saturday morning .

            I have hunted pheasant with a poodle that did real good job, and our Greyhounds could out run and kill a coyote in the blink of an eye.
            I guess lots of dogs have some degree of 'hunter' instinct. Most of my hunting though was behind a friends beagle that was a real workhorse.

              The Black and Tan Coonhound will trail and tree anything that can climb a tree, including Bigfoot.

                We have a walker we run for coons and he is a great dog.

                  My buddy runs his beagle for rabbits and pheasants and it does a great job at both.

                    I recommend beagles for rabbit, pheasant, and even the occasional grouse. Mostly rabbits though.
