Black and Tan Coonhound 96% match


The Black and Tan Coonhound was the original First Dog — George Washington had several of these puppies. Early American colonial settlers valued the Black and Tan Coonhound's ability to track a “cold” scent or the trail of a long-gone animal. Talented hunters, this breed has tracked down bears, deer, and mountain lions.

These are fast dogs with floppy muzzles and an acute sense of smell, designed not only to track but to tree their quarry. Their long, droopy ears pick up and help waft the scent to the Black and Tan Coonhound's nose.

Though they're best known for their hunting abilities, Black and Tan Coonhounds also make for friendly, cheerful, easy-going family companions. Some also compete in the show ring.

Originally from the United States, this medium-sized and moderate-energy breed can grow to between 65-110 pounds and lives an average of 10-12 years. The breed is recognized by the American Kennel Club and classified as a member of the Hound group.
