Overview
The American English Coonhound breed descends from Irish and French breeds brought to America. They were utilized to hunt fox by day and raccoon by night. The original Coonhounds were inadequate when hunting by American standards due to their inability to track quarry in trees. Therefore, the original breed was crossed with the Bloodhound to enhance their scent tracking ability. Today American English Coonhound's are used to track and hunt raccoon, oppossum, cougar, deer, boar, and bear.
Character
The American English Coonhound is often described as a well-conditioned athlete. They move effortlessly and possess great endurance, vigor, and strength. This breed is capable of tremendous speed, is versatile, and highly competitive.
Temperament
Affectionate, assured, watchful, fearless, and loyal. The American English Coonhound breed does best in packs rather than being the only dog. They get along with older, considerate children and other pets they have been raised with. The American English Coonhound has a tendency to be high-strung, exuberant, and lively.
Care
Regular brushing with a firm bristle brush is recommended. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary. It is important to regularly check the ears and paw pads for debris. American English Coonhound's are prone to Hip Dysplasia.
Coat
The coat of the American English Coonhound is stiff, harsh, and short.
Training
The American English Coonhound requires early socialization. They do not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency. The American English Coonhound breed excels in performance, conformation, and field trial events.
Activity
A highly energetic breed, the American English Coonhound is not recommended for city or apartment dwelling. They do best in a rural setting with an active owner. If they are excessively confined or become bored they will bay consistently and become destructive.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of American English Coonhound puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

This is a place for dog questions, not cat questions. But none-the-less, your cat is fine. He/she most likely grew up with a dog and got praise for acting the way she acts now.

Hello, We live in Italy in a rural area and my son recently found a young dog who had either been abandoned or lost. He brought it home and we have cared for it and it gets on well with our other dog who is a cross Alsatian/Hound type dog. We would like to know the breed of our new friend. He is medium in height although still a bit underweight. He is black and white, mainly white and with black spots . He sort of has the face and stance of the photograph you have of a Coonhound but not quite. His eyes are small and slanted. He is very obedient and friendly. I know this is not much to go on but do you have any idea. We intend to keep him especially as the Italian folk are not renown for their kindness to animals.

Since he is a stray, there is a very good chance that he is a mix or crossbreed. With the given information, he could very well be a Coonhound cross. Some things to look for when trying to find his breed is the head shape, body type (muscular in the front, or skinnier), stance and posture, as well as leg length and size, and paw shape. Hope you find out what breed he is, and if you really want to know, you can use a DNA testing kit and identify his almost exact genes!

bury his feces in the hole he digs....when he finds his surprise, it will turn him off from that spot. Do it enough times and digging isn't all that pleasant anymore. Worked with my boxer - she would relapse every year or so. But burying poo broke her everytime.
