For this week’s TDOW, we decided to pick a dog that has been with us almost daily for the past few months. A daycare regular, Frankie the Hound would also win a ‘Most Improved’ award if we gave one out. Frankie did not have the easiest childhood, and was growing up pretty fast when his owner scooped him up from a local shelter and started showing him love and care. Despite his tough start, it has not affected his attitude one bit as he is one of the most loving and good natured dogs that has come through our door in quite some time. Since Frankie’s background is a little bit of an unknown, we decided to do our Breed Highlight on the Black and Tan Coonhound as they seem to share quite a few physical and temperamental qualities.
The Black and Tan Coonhound has been around for quite some time. A great dog to have around if you have a family, the Black and Tan Coonhound has a great sense of authority and protection. Born to hunt by trade, even household hounds are heavily scent-driven and you will see them from time to time nose-down tail-up hunting around the house or in the yard for whatever has their attention. Since they were originally bred to be a hunter’s companion most hounds still have the need to get a lot of daily exercise in, making them less than ideal for small home owners or homes without a yard. Regardless, their love and compassion has won over the hearts of many individuals hence why so many are bred today for companionship and not so much for hunting anymore. If you do want a hunting hound though, the Black and Tan Coonhound is also known to perform well with big game and not just small mammals like raccoon, etc. Protective and slightly possessive, these dogs are one of a kind. If your looking for a trainable, reliable partner look no further!
