My registered female is ukc purple ribbon and the male she bred is ukc purple ribbon. This means excellent pedigree, am I right? My female was in a litter of 18 pups so good genetics yes???

1 Comment


In short, yes and no. The "Purple Ribbon" is a distinction UKC gives to a dog if all 14 ancestors within a dog's three generation pedigree (parents, grandparents, great grandparents) are each registered with United Kennel Club, and are of the same breed. So the fact that both the dam and sire are both Purple Ribbon UKC registered dogs does mean that you can ensure that your female is 100% pure Redbone Coonhound. Now for genetics, that can be a little more tricky. If both the dam and sire of your female have cleared all their health checks and if their parents cleared their health checks, then yes, you have a female with good genetics. Being purebred is one thing. Having sound genetics within the lines of a purebred dog is another. A Redbone Coonhound should be health tested with the OFA or PennHip for hip dysplasia for sure as a base minimum for their health check before being bred.

I bought a Red Bone Coonhound pup and she has a curly tale. Is this normal? They said she was full blood.

1 Comment


The Redbone Coonhound breed is allowed to have a curve in their tail. It should not however curl completely over their back or touch their back such as with a Siberian Husky or Alaskan Malamute. Unless the pup is papered with the AKC, CKC, or UKC; there is no guarantee that she is purebred, whether they said it or not. The only way to know for sure now is to have her DNA tested. You can purchase these tests online or at your vet, all it takes is a cheek swab and you'll be able to know if she is a purebred or not.

I'm in the market for a Redbone Coonhound female puppy. What will it cost me?

1 Comment


The price of a puppy is all going to depend on several things including but not limited too; where the breeder is located, if there are any other breeders of that breed in the area, if the dog is of champion blood lines, if the dog is going to be a breeding prospect or not, and if the dam and sire have had their health checks or not. The average price for a Redbone Coonhound puppy is between $500.00 - $800.00 per puppy. However some breeders may charge more or less. It is best to ask questions as to why they price their puppies at whatever their asking price is and go from there.

I recently purchased a Redbone coonhound and Australian cattle dog mix puppy. What will she be like?

1 Comment


Whenever you get a mixed breed dog, the dog could take after any breed that it is mixed with a little or a lot. What I suggest you do is to research both breeds and if at all possible, spend time with the breeds to get to know them a little more. The puppy could take a 50/50 split of both breeds, or be more like the Redbone Coonhound or more like the Australian Cattle Dog. All I know for sure if that you'll have one active dog no matter who she takes after.
