Overview
An American breed originating in Georgia, the Redbone Coonhound was developed during the 1800's to hunt raccoon, boar, bobcat, and cougar. This breed became a favorite with farmers and huntsmen due to their agility, speed, and keen sense of smell. They are able to hunt over any type of terrain and in any weather. In addition to their hunting prowess, the Redbone Coonhound is an amiable companion.
Character
The Redbone Coonhound is a rugged, muscular, and robust breed. The paws are webbed which enables this breed to be proficient at swimming. They possess large expressive eyes, long floppy ears, and a proud demeanor. Redbone Coonhound's exhibit a striking and stunning appearance.
Temperament
The Redbone Coonhound breed is loyal, affectionate, highly energetic, and free-spirited. They do well with children, however, caution should be taken with small children due to their exuberance. They do well with other dogs, but non-canine pets are not recommended because of their strong hunting instinct. The Redbone Coonhound is an even-tempered and good-natured family companion and an aggressive and fierce hunter. They do have a tendency to drool excessively and bark incessantly. They also have a strong "doggie" odor. This breed is not recommended for use as a watchdog as they do not know a stranger. They are sweet, friendly, enthusiastic, and reliable.
Care
Redbone Coonhound's require occasional brushing with a firm bristle brush. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary. It is important to regularly check the ears and paws for debris. This breed has no known health issues.
Coat
The coat of the Redbone Coonhound is short, coarse, glossy, and smooth. The coat lays flat against the body. This breed is a light shedder.
Training
Basic obedience is recommended. The Redbone Coonhound breed is intelligent and eager to learn. Training must be done with fairness, firmness, and consistency.
Activity
The Redbone Coonhound is not recommended for apartment living. This breed requires an inordinate amount of exercise to be happy. They enjoy hunting, swimming, running, jogging, and family activities. Redbone Coonhound's do best in a rural setting or a large securely fenced yard.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Redbone 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.

The standard for the Redbone Coonhound breed on a male should be no bigger than 80 lbs. This is the UKC and AKC breed Standards.

Will they instinctively just take off if they smell a small animal? This is my concern. Also how are they with children?

They are wonderful with children. I suggest getting one as an adult/senior if you are new to hounds.They are easier to train, walk, and play with. They are just as active as pups. They learn not to bolt. The dogs probably won't run after every smell. you should let them walk towards it occasionally to ease their curiosity.

If he / she is inhaling their food that might be a sign that the dog is not getting enough food. I usually feed my dogs two cups in the morning and in the dater noon for dinner. Hope this helps!

Go to your local pet store and pick up a 'slow eater bowl' for him to eat out of. It'll make him slow down and force him to chew his food.

No registery can force a breeder to give papers on a dog. If there was a signed contract then the registry might be able to do something. If you have a contract then you can file court actions and a court order will direct the registry to issue papers

It says that they are not a good watch dog. I STRONGLY disagree. We just lost our Redbone yesterday after 9 years of a wonderful life. He absolutely allowed NO ONE to come into our home uninvited. And at times, we had to correct him for growling at someone who was welcome. Extremely intelligent, fast learning. There will never be another dog like my Leroy. I was 32 when I received him and I'm 41 at his death. I've had MANY dogs in my entire life, and NONE can touch this dog. He grew up with my son and they loved each other dearly. They were more like brothers than dog and master. He loved his family with all his heart and he stood between them and danger time and again. He is greatly missed and can never be replaced. We may find another dog, but none can take his place.

I'm sorry about your pup. We recently adopted two redbones and I couldnt agree more with you. They have absolutely been the best dogs I've ever had! And like you said they are extremely protective of my husband and I and have been excellent guard dogs! I feel much safer knowing they are here. I don't know that I'll ever own another type of dog!

Yes, we adopted our Leroy as well from the ASPCA. I know it's been a little over 7 months, but it still feels like yesterday. There are days when I still cry and think about him. When we get a storm, I think of him and how he would come and hide out in our bedroom. For some reason he felt that was the safe spot to be! They are one of a kind animals for sure.

I must agree! My redbone, Ellie Mae, is very protective. She knows friends and family come to the back door and if you come to my front door, look out! I also like the fact that she barks at passers by. She makes me feel safe and i like to think that since she has been with us, and not at the shelter, we also make her feel safe.

Our redbone is a little over 2 years old and he is a good dog but not a watch dog. He would never try and stop a stranger from entering the yard.

My duke sounds very threatening but the most he might do is knock someone over because he jumps up on them due to excitement. He does bark more if a person doesn't come over to greet him or if I won't let him go over and greet another dog.
