American English Coonhound  


The American English Coonhound (AEC) comes from Virginia Hounds, who were bred to handle rough terrain. An agile, speedy dog, the AEC is ready and able to hunt day or night, and is known for his excellent voice. He is also an alert and active, but affable dog who enjoys the company of both people and other dogs. The AEC’s coat is short, and easy to care for, but care must be taken to provide him with enough exercise and activity.
