The Foxhound is a hostile mob added by Quark.

Spawning[edit | edit source]

Spawns in groups of 4 to 6 in the Nether on Netherrack. As a hostile mob, they do contribute to the hostile mob cap. This may be considered as a bug[1] as they do not adhere to the standard despawn algorithm and will not despawn even if they player exceeds a distance of 128 meters from the mob. This can impact the spawn rate of other mobs drastically.

Behavior and Appearance[edit | edit source]

Foxhounds are similar to the Wolf in appearance and behavior. Foxhounds growl and will attack skeletons. They can not be tamed with bones, but with coal instead. An attack from a Foxhound will damage the player and set them on fire.

Like most mobs native to the nether, they are immune to fire damage.

Tamed foxhounds will snooze on top of hot blocks such as magma blocks. They have the added benefit when sleeping on an active Furnace where they will speed up the furnace. This effect cannot be stacked with more foxhounds on a furnace.[2]

Foxhounds are small creatures, able to pass though a 1x1 hole.

Foxhounds may drop Leather, Sulfur and/or Blaze Powder when killed.
