Black and Tan Coonhounds:

“Easygoing, friendly, bright; mellow by the fireside, rugged and brave on the trail.
The Black and Tan Coonhound is first and fundamentally a working dog, a trail and tree hound, capable of withstanding the rigors of winter, the heat of summer, and the difficult terrain over which he is called upon to work. Used principally for trailing and treeing raccoon, the Black and Tan Coonhound runs his game entirely by scent. The characteristics and courage of the Coonhound also make him proficient on the hunt for deer, bear, mountain lion and other big game. Judges are asked by the club sponsoring the breed to place great emphasis upon these facts when evaluating the merits of the dog. The general impression is that of power, agility and alertness. He immediately impresses one with his ability to cover the ground with powerful rhythmic strides.”

Five years ago we adopted an 11 month old male Black and Tan Coonhound mix. We didn't know much about hounds, but the head of the rescue got to know us and thought Dunbar would be a perfect match for us, and he has been. From the beginning he fit right into our family and was so smart...He wasn't house trained and within a week he was going to the door when he needed to go outside. We so fell in love with Dunbar that we were interested in finding out more about his breed. I first made contact with people at the American Black and Tan Rescue: http://www.coonhoundrescue.com/ . They were very nice about answering my questions and telling me a lot about the breed.
At the time, I was also part of Facebook and joined "Black and Tan Coonhounds":
https://www.facebook.com/groups/306020402829741/ .
It's really a great group that loves their B&T's. Learned a lot from them and made friends with several members. If you are really interested in B&T's, I would suggest joining the group. They have a wide variety of members and many of them are hunters. There are a lot of photos and videos on the site. The only reason I am not a part of the group anymore is that I got tired of FB in general and cancelled my membership.
In addition to my boy, I have also interacted with 2 full bred B&T's at the vet. Like my boy, they were lovely, smart dogs.
