How they develped
In the 18th century, Scottish immigrants brought Red Foxhounds to America. Sometime after the Civil War hunters mixed Red Foxhounds with Red Irish Foxhounds and maybe Bloodhounds to make the Redbone Coonhound.
Redbones can be very athletic and energetic
Strength and agility
Redbone Coonhounds strength and endurance make it east to cover all the kinds of
terrain, even jumping over five feet high.
When they hunt, they hunt raccoons, big cats, coyotes, and even bears. Hunting for small animals in trees it is called treeing. If they can smell it they can find it.
The first generation of red scent hounds were called saddlebacks because of a marking on their back that looked like a saddle.
