The Redbone Hound, also known as the Redbone Coonhound, is a treeing and trailing dog used for hunting game such as Bear, Bobcat, Raccoon and Cougar. Some Redbone Hounds can be used as water dogs. This dog has been registered with the UKC since 1904


In early America, hunters had a red hound that was used for treeing and hunting game which they called Redbone. The ancestors of the Redbone Hound are thought to have been Foxhounds which were later crossed with the Blood Hound by a then well known Fox hunter and breeder named George F.L. Birdsong in Georgia,USA in the 1840s. Birdsong bought the pack from Dr. Thomas Henry and began selective breeding to retain the original red color and abilities that produced the modern day Redbone Hound.


No particular health issues are associated with the Redbone hound. It requires daily walks for strength, stamina and weight control which helps to maintain good health.
