Punish the deed,- not the breed

Our family American Foxhound will just walk around the house crying/whimpering, not seeming to want anything. We have had her for probably 6 years now. She was born at a shelter and her brother was adopted near by so he comes over quite a bit. She is much more vocal then him.
Is this normal for their breed?
When searching google, it only compared them doing this with hunting.
Btw she gets plenty of exercise: 2 mile run in the am, large yard, and at least one other long walk per day.
