Notes:The American Black and Tan Coonhound Rescue program was organized to help save deserving Coonhounds and Bloodhounds that have been discarded by their owners. Our dogs are located in foster homes all over the United States. Very few people realize that the coonhound is a devoted, loving, and entertaining member of the family. They are large dogs, sleek and glistening, and typically not overly active. They prefer to relax where you are, but should you desire to take a walk or play, they are willing to accompany you. The biggest and best thing about adopting a Black & Tan Coonhound is that you are saving a life. These dogs were rescued from shelters where they were housed when somebody decided they no longer wanted them. The most common reason for our dogs ending up in shelters is simply due to irresponsible dog ownership or its failure to hunt. The dogs are left to wander and the Black & Tan Coonhound with its superior scenting ability usually sniffs his way into trouble if left to his own devices. Irresponsible breeders may also dump entire litters of puppies at shelters like so much expired inventory.
