American English Coonhound


Descended from the English Foxhound, the American English Coonhoound is a hunting dog breed known for its speed, endurance, and loud voice in the field. They also bark and bark indoors, which makes them a poor choice if you have neighbors nearby. They need a lot of exercise. Although they are purebred dogs, you may find them in the care of shelters or rescue groups. Remember to adopt. Don’t buy if you want to bring a dog home. These dogs are loving, intelligent, easy to train and fairly easy to care for. However, novice pet parents should be careful. They also need firm, consistent training and lots of mental and physical activity. If you can’t keep up with seemingly endless walks and play sessions, you may want to consider a less energetic breed. But if you can provide the exercise they need, a very safe yard for them to roam, and patient training, you’ll have a furry family member who loves them.


Once known as the Virginia Bloodhound and adapted to hunting the rugged terrain and difficult raccoons of the American colonies, the American English Coonhound is famous for its speed and endurance. It began as a dual-purpose dog that hunted foxes by day and raccoons by night. It eagerly seeks its prey, singing as it hunts, a trait that carries over into domestic life. This hound barks. On the positive side, it is friendly with people and other dogs. If you are not going to hunt him, plan to give this fast, competitive dog plenty of daily exercise in other ways to keep him from becoming frustrated and destructive. He would make a good companion for a runner.
