History: The American English Coonhound descends from English Foxhounds and New World Virginian Hounds. These dogs descended from French and Irish hounds that came to the southern U.S. They were originally meant for hunting on rougher terrain. Their first name was English Fox and Coonhound, as they hunted fox by day and raccoons by night. Among the English Coonhounds were the Treeing Walker Coonhound and the Bluetick Coonhound. For American standards, these original Coonhounds were inadequate. After the quarry crawled up a tree, the hounds would lose them. This often happened with animals Americans hunted, thus the breed was crossed with the Bloodhound. Until 1945, the Bluetick Coonhound and Treeing Walker Coonhounds were known as American English Coonhounds. Today the American English Coonhound has a good scent and can trail well.
