This true American breed was created 300 years ago by combining the Bloodhound with the Foxhound. Originally used as a hunting dog, the Black and Tan Coonhound is a quick, active dog with impressive scenting skills. This dog’s long, floppy ears, beautiful black & tan coat, and droopy jowls give it a distinctive, charming look. The Black and Tan Coonhound makes a sweet, loyal family pet and would do well in Large Living Spaces with plenty of room for activity.
Black and Tan Coonhounds are one of six coonhound breeds, and is famous for his incredible ability to track scents (even if the trail has gone cold!).
The Black and Tan Coonhound originated in the United States in the 1700s.
