Black and Tan Coonhound   Hound, Family Dog


The Black and Tan Coonhound is an older American breed of dog, descended from a crossing of Bloodhound and Black and Tan Virginia Foxhound. Bred to trail and tree raccoon, they are friendly family dogs who love to be with their people and are calm in the house. They need moderate daily exercise, and may need to be trained against their instinct to tree and bark upon seeing smaller animals. Their short coats are low-maintenance.
