Plott Hound


Plott Hound The Plott Hound breed is a coonhound, a type of scent hound, that was once used to hunt boars in the forests of Germany. The dangerous nature of this task made it necessary for them to possess courage and stamina.

They are also fast, bright, confident, and can be vicious fighters with game, even if they are big bears or fierce boars. They will not hesitate to get into water and can quickly learn from training.

The Plott Hound's Origins and History Source: Wikipedia, UKC, the Dog Info site Country/Region of Origin: Germany Original purpose: hunting Name: Named for Jonathan Plott Hound who had brought a number of the Plott Hound breed from Germany to the United States. Historical notes: The Plott Hound dogs are coonhounds that are not descended from foxhounds. Since they were brought over from Europe to North Carolina in the 1750's, there has been so far only one known instance where new blood was introduced to the breed. For the most part, the Plott Hound hound has not been cross-bred. Other crosses may have taken place in the 1900's but it cannot be confirmed. They are the only American hound that does not have British ancestry. The Plott Hound family has rarely put them on the market so they are very rare outside the southern states of the US. Whenever they are bought, they are used for hunting rather than being kept as a home pet.
