ORIGIN

Originally known as the Leopard Cur, the American Leopard Hound is believed to have descended from dogs that were brought to North America by Spanish conquistadors. These Spanish dogs were then crossed with native dogs from Mexico. Eventually, American settlers brought them back to what is now the United States to hunt large game such as bear and deer.

DESCRIPTION

Powerful and agile, the American Leopard Hound is a muscular, medium-to-large-sized hound that is known for their hunting skills. Developed more for temperament and hunting capabilities, the physical appearance of the breed varies but their defining characteristic is the merle or "leopard-like" coat patterns. Their coat is short, dense, yet close-fitting and comes in a variety of solid colors in addition to the spotted patterns. Strong hindquarters and long legs enable these dogs to hunt in rough terrain and even climb trees. They have nearly round-shaped eyes, dropped ears that lie close to the head, and a well-proportioned muzzle with a black or liver-colored nose. The American Leopard Hound's tail is seen in any length, medium-length to docked.
