Our beloved "long ear" dogs
Coonhounds and foxhounds are sweet on kids, easy with other dogs, and they are sensitive and social -- real people pleasers. Read more about pet coonhounds on this web site. We want to share our love of coonhounds with the whole continent, with hopes of inspiring dog lovers everywhere to consider adopting a "coonie."
Remember, coonhounds are American dog breeds, worthy of our respect and devotion. If you are thinking about bringing a large sporting breed dog into your life, think about a coonhound.

"Thank you for your website - it was the one site that I found when looking up his breed after we adopted him that made me feel like he'd be happy with us; so many other sites stressed how active hounds were and I was so afraid he'd be too much for us, but he's perfect!" ~Christina from NY
Visit our Cafepress store and look at all the options for summer hound wear! You'll find tee shirts and sweatshirts for men, women and children, with lots of colors and styles available. We have mousepads, message bags, mugs and more! Check out the super cool field bags. You'll want one! We are an all volunteer organization with no paid staff. Every penny of profit goes directly to our programs that support the adoption of coonhounds and foxhounds. Thank you so very much for supporting our work! We hope you wear our gear with pride in our all-American hounds!
