History

In the colonial period, hounds were imported into the United States for the popular sport of fox hunting. Various breeds of foxhounds and other hunting hounds were imported from England, Ireland, and France.

Care and Health

Gastric torsion, or bloat, is common in deep-chested dogs like Coonhounds. Hip and elbow dysplasia can also impact medium-large dogs like Coonhounds. In addition, eye and ear issues are also fairly common in Coonhounds because their ears are long and floppy so regular ear cleanings are needed to avoid infection.

Fun Fact

Today’s purebred Coonhounds actually arose through careful cross-breeding between different dog breeds.
