Redbone Coonhound Information

Redbone CoonhoundIf you hunt and are looking for a hard-working, versatile dog to accompany you, the Redbone Coonhound is your guy. In the late 1700s Scottish immigrants brought Red Irish Foxfounds to America, and a century later, coon hunters started breeding for a faster, more agile dog for treeing raccoons.

With this background, the Redbone Coonhound is a force to be reckoned with on the trail. At home, this beautiful, flashy red dog is even-keeled and kindly. He just needs some exercise – a run on the trail or a swim – and then he’ll be rested and calm for a long period of time.
