Black and Tan Coonhound

The Black and Tan Coonhound is a scent hound that is believed to have originated from the crossing of the Bloodhound and Foxhound. They are passionate workers and obedient companions but can become destructive if they are not properly exercised. Hailing from the Ozarks and Smokies in the United States, the Black and Tan Coonhound is known for their cold nose – the ability to pick up and follow a trail, no matter how faint it is. Their strong hunting instinct makes them rarely thought of as a family dog, but they are actually quite silly and have a laidback, gentle nature.
