Black-and-Tan Coonhound

Black-and-Tan Coonhound


Height: 23-27 inches

Weight: 50-75 lbs.

Life Span: 10-12 yrs.

Breed Group: Scent Hounds

Overview
The black-and-tan coonhound is a gentle, affectionate, playful dog that gets along with everybody, including children and other animals.

While never at the top of obedience class, coonhounds excel in hunting and are happiest when hot on the trail of a raccoon or opossum.

Appearance
Because the coonhound's coat is short and dense, it is able to withstand rough terrain.

The color is black, with rich tan markings above the eyes and on the sides of the muzzle, as well as on the chest, legs, and breeching, with black pencil markings on the toes.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
The black-and-tan coonhound requires minimal grooming. Comb with a rubber brush once a week, especially when shedding is heaviest.

This dog needs a lot of exercise--several vigorous walks and runs in a secured area daily.

Origins
The black-and-tan coonhound is descended from the English Talbot hound, the bloodhound, and the foxhound (the Virginia foxhound of the 18th century, in particular).

Special Alerts
The coonhound's strong scenting instinct makes it ill suited to city or apartment life.

Breed-related health concerns: hip dysplasia, ectropion, hemophilia (a bleeding disorder).
