Dog Weathervane – Foxhounds

Running Foxhound Weather Vane


Customers from varying locations love our Running Foxhounds Weathervane. Crafted in copper with brass grasses, customers can opt for gold or palladium leafing to replicate the markings of individual dogs. This weathervane can be made as a double portrait or either dog can be made separately. (Please contact us for a quote if  you are interested in a single Foxhound Weathervane.)

Whether you have American Foxhounds, Dumfriesshire Foxhounds, English Foxhounds, Welsh Hounds, or Virginia Black and Tans, any of these dogs with their lean athletic physiques are ideal candidates for a truly spectacular weathervane.

Adding collars is an option on our dog weathervanes, and tags with inscriptions in the shape of a heart, circle or dog bone are also available. Customers can also specify gender and send us photos of their dog(s) to create a portrait weathervane. We use brown glass eyes with black pupils to give the foxhounds a more lifelike and animated appearance.

A very dramatic pairing would be to add one of our Fox Weathervanes to a nearby location. Whether you have two side by side cupolas, a garden setting or even a back fence, paired weathervanes interact together in the wind, creating a lively tableau that changes from minute to minute!

A foxhound is a type of large hunting hound bred for strong hunting instincts, great energy, and, like all scent hounds, a keen sense of smell. In fox hunting, the foxhound’s namesake, packs of foxhounds track quarry such as foxes, followed—usually on horseback—by the hunters, sometimes for several miles at a stretch; moreover, foxhounds also sometimes guard sheep and houses, and the foxhound is also the state dog of Virginia.
