Redbone Coonhound  


This eye-catching hound is revered for both its flashy looks and superior hunting instincts. They are an old American breed, descending from red foxhounds brought over by Scottish and Irish immigrants in the 1700’s and 1800’s. Developers of the breed focused on their unique red coat as well as hunting ability and Redbone Coonhounds have been a distinctive and respected breed for well over a century. He is an agile and versatile hunter in the field, possessing a natural treeing instinct and ability to hunt a wide range of small and large game. The Redbone Coonhound has a balanced temperament and is amenable to obedience training. This hunter by nature needs exercise but is otherwise a pleasant, low-maintenance companion.
