Redbone Coonhound


The Redbone Coonhound is an American breed of dog widely used for hunting bear, raccoon, and cougar. Their agility allows them to be used for hunting from swamplands to mountains and some can be used as water dogs. The American Kennel Club standard says, “The Redbone mingles handsome looks and an even temperament with a confident air and fine hunting talents.” This breed has been registered with the United Kennel Club since 1904 and the AKC since 2009. This is the breed of hound featured in the classic novel Where the Red Fern Grows.
