Plott Information

PlottClassified as a coonhound, the Plott is a skilled hunter specialized in tracking down big animals like bears or boars as well as wounded animals. The breed is fearless and unyielding when on the hunt, but sweet and gentle with humans during down times. The Plott originated in the United States and is now the state dog of North Carolina.

The Plott’s physical build has the classic look of a hound, and its smooth coat can be any shade of brindle, solid black or with assorted markings. A specialized breed, this might not be the right breed for first-time dog owners, but for those who like to hunt, this guy has the right chops.
