BLACK AND TAN COONHOUND

Hound Group

Like their Beagle and Bloodhound cousins in the hound family, Black and Tan Coonhounds have an amazingly sensitive nose, long velvety ears, and a sweet disposition. The coal-black coat features rich tan accents, including the distinctive “pumpkin seeds” above keenly expressive eyes. These are big, strong hounds: A good-size male can stand 27 inches at the shoulder; he’s considerably taller when the majestic oval-shaped head is taken into account. A well-built Black and Tan Coonhound covers ground with effortless, eager strides.
