Redbone Coonhound

Miscellaneous Group

Redbone Coonhounds from Ardie and Teresa

The Redbone Coonhound is an able and proficient hunter for coon, bear or bobcat, yet they make a great family pet.  Loyal to its owner, easy to train, and great with children.  Early socialization and training will just make them more accommodating to a family.  While they usually get along with other canines it may mistake the cat for a coon.  Expect to get drooled on.  They are bred to hunt and need a great deal of exercise to satisfy their need to roam.  Probably better in a open country environment.  They are an all-weather dog, and excellent water dogs.  Low grooming maintenance.

We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet store puppies may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner.
If you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA (, and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
