Black and Tan Coonhound History

  1. It is believed that the Black and Tan Coonhound descended from the Bloodhound and the Talbot hound, which had already been developed by the time of William the Conqueror. The breed was then developed from the Virginia Foxhound, bred for its color and superb sense of smell. It originated in the Ozark, Blue Ridge, Appalachian and Smokey Mountains in the southeastern United States. During the late 1700s, it was popular among Indian fighters and scouts. It is known for its exceptional ability to track scents even under the worst conditions, and is a successful hunter of raccoon, bear, deer, and mountain lion, even over rough terrain.

    The Black and Tan Coonhound was officially recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1945. Today, there are two varieties of the Black and Tan Coonhound: field and show. The show variety tends to be bigger and calmer, while the field variety is still used for hunting.
