Dating back to red foxhounds brought over by Scottish immigrants in the late 1700s and red foxhounds imported from Ireland before the Civil War, the Redbone Coonhound evolved into a recognized, respected breed well before 1900. While other Coonhound breeders selected only for function, Redbone breeders, for a period of several years, concentrated on breeding a nearly solid-colored, flashy, red dog, bred also for looks. As soon as the eye-catching color bred true, these serious hunters once again selected for performance. Today both attributes are well established in the breed.
The breed is even-tempered and trainable in the home and wants to please its owner. It is amenable to formal training. The Redbone’s short, smooth coat requires only occasional brushing and bathing.
