Overview
An American breed, the Plott Hound was so named by the family that developed them in the Appalachian Mountain chain. They are highly prized for their hunting skill of bear, wolf, coyote, wildcat, and raccoon. The Plott Hound breed is a rarity outside of the Southern states and are not intended to solely be family pets.
Character
The Plott Hound is athletic, powerful, and muscular. This breed possesses endurance, stamina, agility, and courage. They are alert, confident, determined, and aggressive when hunting.

Does your Plott Hound bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
Plott Hound's are loyal, enthusiastic, and friendly. They are extremely intense and driven when hunting. The Plott Hound is good with children and other pets. They have a tendency to be wary of strangers, possess a threatening baying bark, and will staunchly defend their family and territory against any person or animal.
Care
The Plott Hound requires minimal grooming. Occasional brushing and bathing will suffice. It is important to routinely check the ears and paw pads for debris particularly after hunting. This breed is prone to bloat and gastric torsion.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Plott Hound has a thick weather-resistant coat that is glossy, smooth, and fine. Some may present as a double coat breed with a stiff, long, smooth outer coat and a soft, short, thick under coat.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are recommended. The Plott Hound breed is intelligent, quick to learn, and eager to please. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, and consistency. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Plott Hound puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Plott Hound is not recommended for a sedentary owner or for apartment living. They prefer to be outside and do best in a large securely fenced yard or rural setting. This breed requires an inordinate amount of exercise and a job to do. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

My husband and I just became first-time parents to our daughter in late August. We had three dogs and two passed away in November due to cancer. We were devastated. We got a Curr hound puppy that is just a few days younger than our daughter. Our other dog is a 7 year old weenie dog mix. Our Curr is growing quickly and is so sweet. We live on a farm with plenty of acres to run, but we'd like to get her a friend that's more her age and someone to play with, learn to protect our family/home/farm from large prey. Would a Plott Hound be a good companion to get with a 4 month old baby and another four month old puppy? Our dogs are with us inside and pretty much go wherever we go. Thanks for your time!

Your Curr/Hound mix will grow up with the instincts to protect her property and family. So you will not have to worry about that as long as you teach her what are threats and what aren't. As for the Plott Hound puppy, the Plott Hound is a lovely family dog and does best on an acreage/farm. Since you already have the space, a pup would do fine in your home with your daughter and your other dog.

Does the Plott Hound have brown streaks along the side of its body? Our dog is a rescued stray dog. He looks like a lab with some hound of some kind. He has long ears, barks like a hound and has brown streaks along the sides of his body. He looks like this Plott hound in the picture but has longer ears, can't see if the dog in the picture has these streaks or not. Can you tell me if he probably has some of the Plott Hound breed in him?

The only way to know if your dog is a pure-bred or what breeds make up your dog is to have your dog DNA tested. You can buy them online or at your vet for an average cost of $45.00 - $85.00.

How big do Plott Hound and Siberian husky mix puppies get? We are looking to get a puppy that is a Siberian husky and Plott Hound mix. I'm worried that it's going to be too big for my house. I am trying to get ideas on how big he could get, any ideas?

Hi, I was wondering. If you ever got this mix? We have a19 week old Plott hound mix we got from a rescue and the father's breed was unknown, but we think there is husky in there. Just wondered how big your dog got? Thanks.

We know the mom of our dog was a Plott Hound but he has a bushy curly tail of a husky and so we've always thought that's what the father was. He's about a year and a half and he's just shy of 50 pounds.

We just rescued a 15-month-old Plott Hound/Curr mix who was been trained for bear, cougar, and pig hunting. We have a 160 acre ranch for her to run around on but are worried she will be a danger to our animals. Is retraining possible at her age? She has spent her life on a chain, but we want her to become part of the family.

With Positive Reinforcement training, she should be able to come around. But please remember, her instincts and previous training will run deep. Do not trust your dog off leash/unsupervised until you are 100% sure she is not a danger to your other animals.
