American English Coonhound

Part of the hound group, the American English Coonhound plays various roles in hunting, including treeing, and therefore has a high prey drive. Generally good with children, the English Coonhound is loyal to their owners, tending to be quiet in the house with adequate exercise to stay healthy. The American English Coonhound comes in three types; redtick, bluetick, and a tricolour tick patters. The breed stands 22-27" at the shoulder, and their weight should be proportionate to their size. The American English Coonhound is overall a healthy breed, although it is prone to overheating while hunting in the summer months.
