So I wanted to get a dog from a rescue. Never thought about getting a hound dog I've always been a retriever/ lab guy. Anyway saw this dog thought it was a mutt. Turns out that it is a pure breed Redbone Coon hound. Anybody have one of these dogs? I've heard there the same dog in that book "Where the Red fern Grows". I've had him about 2 months now name is Norway, and I tell you what if your looking for a dog, these dogs are awesome. They also are very good looking dogs. Anyway just thought I would brag a little. Heres a link to what they look like Redbone Coonhound - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Don't have any picks of Norway but hes appx 1 year old, and he was a stray, found in GA who now lives in NOVA.
