The Redbone Coonhound is a tenacious hunting dog used for hunting raccoon, deer, bear, boar, cougar, or any other large game. The breed originated in the Southern United States and is highlighted by their deep red coat. Described by the American Kennel Club as having "an overall impression that a master sculptor carved them from blocks of the finest mahogany," the Redbone blends an unrelenting hunter with a loving family dog. This breed has been registered with the United Kennel Club since 1902 and the American Kennel Club since 2009.
