Species group: Mixed Breeds
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.
To preserve the unique traits of these two Coonhounds, they shouldn't usually be crossed, but accidents do happen, and you might find the Redbone Coonhound / Black And Tan Coonhound Mix in a rescue.
Appearance / health:
Expect a good-sized hound, but it seems to be a matter of chance whether the puppies will be red or black and tan.
Behavior / temperament:
It's impossible to predict the exact personality of any mixed-breed dog, and the cross of two fine Coonhounds doesn't guarantee that you get the best of both breeds. That said, it seems reasonable to assume that most individuals will have keen noses and the ability to track.
