Welcome to the Coonhound & Foxhound Companions website
A grateful reader ...
"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

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.
