Black and Tan Coonhound Puppies
Description: Varying in coloring, there are many similarities among the six types of Coonhounds: the Black and Tan Coonhound, the Blue Tick Coonhound, the English Coonhound, the Plott Hound, the Redbone Coonhound and the Treeing Walker. Black and Tan Coonhounds were and still are used for trailing and treeing raccoon, bears, big cats, or whatever their master is hunting. They run their game entirely by scent, often hunting at night for raccoons, as raccoons are nocturnal. Black and Tan Coonhounds are especially friendly to people and animals (except the animals they trail). They are eager to please, confident and well rounded in temperament. These Coonhounds are determined in their scent tracking, and were bred specifically for that purpose. They are the first Coonhound to separate from the American Foxhound umbrella of breeds, and were also the only Coonhound to be accepted by the AKC, although they are mostly bred for treeing and rarely bred for show. Black and Tan Coonhounds do well at adapting to different environments. They do well in both extremes of weather, and are highly intelligent animals. They are hard workers and live for the hunt. They bawl quite loudly and quite often because when they catch the scent of a raccoon and start following it, they bay for their master to hear them. As soon as they corner the quarry they bay and howl in a different tone so that their master knows they've got the animal cornered. Black and Tan Coonhounds require a high-fenced yard, as these dogs will run off on a scent if they get the chance. Strong in instinct and confident of their abilities, the Black and Tan Coonhound makes an excellent Coonhound or pet.
