Distinguished by his flashy red coat, the Redbone Coonhound was bred to tree raccoons and cougars. His athleticism, speed, agility and ability to hunt a cold trail make him an outstanding hunter. A determined, proud breed, the Redbone Coonhound is aggressive and fearless in the field but gentle and eager to please at home. His smooth, yet slightly coarse coat only needs occasional grooming.
