So you’re looking to adopt an Plott Hound, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “The hound with the curious name (we’ll get to that) and unique history (we’ll get to that, too) is a streamlined, long-tailed, light-footed hunter standing as high as 25 inches at the shoulder. The flashy coat comes in an array of brindle-stripe patterns, from black flecked with gold to flaming orange and russet, in addition to some solid colors. The medium-length ears hang gracefully, and the leather of the nose, lips, and eye rims are black, setting off an inquisitive and confident expression. The Plott Hound, a hound with a curious name and a unique history, is a rugged, relentless hunting dog who is a mellow gentleman at home but fearless, implacable, and bold at work. This eye-catching scenthound is North Carolina’s state dog.”
An Plott Hound typically ranges from 50.8cm to 63.5cm in height, and weighs from 18.143694800000002kg to 27.2155422kg.
