So you’re looking to adopt an Redbone Coonhound, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “Redbones are medium-to-large hound dogs whose muscles undulate beneath a sleek and stunning red coat. The overall impression is that a master sculptor carved them from blocks of the finest mahogany. The classically houndy head is flanked by ears long enough to reach the nose. Dreamy brown eyes give the face an expression described by the breed’s devotees as “pleading.”Bred to work on all kinds of punishing terrain, Redbones are fast and surefooted and move with a proud, determined gait. The streamlined Redbone Coonhound, an American original, is even-tempered, mellow, and kindly at home but a tiger on the trail. Vigorous activities like hunting and swimming between long periods of rest is the rhythm of coonhound life.”
An Redbone Coonhound typically ranges from 53.34cm to 68.58cm in height, and weighs from 20.41165665kg to 31.751465900000003kg.
