Black and Tan Coonhound

The Black and Tan Coonhound is a cross between a Fox Hound and a Blood Hound. This breed originated in the United States, and in 1945 they were recognized as a Hound, making them the only one out of six types of Coonhound in the American Kennel Club Hound group.

The Black and Tan Coonhound is a scent hound used to hunt down deer, stag, mountain lion, bear, cougar and most commonly, raccoon. They use their powerful sense of smell to locate their prey and when it is found, they unleash a remarkably loud howl to alert their master of the discovery.

The Black and Tan Coonhound has been bred to keep their unique coat colouring. They have a bulky head with floppy square shaped ears and a large nose. The body of this breed is as long as it is high, making them a sturdy and powerful dog.
