Redbone Coonhound Puppies
Description: The Redbone Coonhound is a dog of breathtaking beauty with its short, deep, rich, red coat, its muscular body and its long floppy ears that can reach their nose. They have large eyes that beg to please you, and feet of elegance that look more like that of a cat paw. The feet are webbed, so swimming is a must, being a sport they very much enjoy. For a time they were simply bred for looks, being one of six American coonhounds. The Redbone Coonhounds are happy dogs with a pleasing voice. They are highly specialized in treeing prey, and they have excellent scenting abilities that they obtained from the Bloodhound. They are kind and friendly at home, and as long as they are raised in the home, they make just as great house pets as they do hunters. Some drool significantly. Gentle and docile, this breed gets along well with children and other pets. They are also highly trainable. "Reds", as they are sometimes called, are intelligent, rugged, and adapt to many terrains. They have a natural instinct to hunting and treeing coons but are equally proficient trailing and treeing bear, cougar and bobcat. Not only an excellent hunting dog, Redbones make a wonderful family pet.

Coonhounds are happy, eager to please, kind hearted, and loyal. They are very
friendly, good with children and get along well with most people and animals.
They are not good for guarding, as they have never been in that field nor are
they protective enough. They do make excellent watchdogs, however, with very
alert senses. They have endurance and stamina built for a hound, and it has
been said of them by a major breeder in the 1940s that they are, "always ready
for a hunt, no woods is strange to him, no night too dark or water too deep
or too cold." They are exceptionally good at scenting, being related to the
Bloodhound, as well as treeing. They are intense and hard working in the field,
but easygoing and gentle in the home. They are intelligent and more trainable
than most hounds.
