The Redbone Coonhound, according to the American Kennel Club, is "amiable, eager to please, and easy-going." However, for those who enjoy hunting with hounds, the Redbone Coonhound is a valuable partner on the hunting trail. He is highly adaptable to even the most difficult terrain, whether it be steep hills or the muddiest of scent trails. He possesses an amazing scenting talent, and, while requiring a great deal of exercise to remain happy, the Redbone Coonhound is actually one of the most easy-going of the scent hounds. Forever ingrained in the general public's memory as Old Dan and Little Ann of Where the Red Fern Grows, the Redbone Coonhound is both a great hunter and a great companion.

Redbone Coonhound Dog Name Considerations

The Redbone Coonhound is first and foremost recognizable for his beautiful, russet-colored coat. Sometimes it is described as mahogany or dark fawn. Because of his coat color, names such as Rose, Rosie, Red, or Rusty are often appropriate for a Redbone Coonhound. 

As previously stated, the Redbone Coonhound was the type of dog featured in Wilson Rawls' classic Where the Red Fern Grows. In the book (and the film), Billy Colman works for two years to save $50 in order to purchase two Redbone Coonhounds. He names these two pups Old Dan and Little Ann. If a person enjoys the book, then naming one's Redbone Coonhounds after the two pups in the novel will be the perfect choice. 

Of course, the primary function of the Redbone Coonhound is to scent out prey and help to flush it out in the open for hunters. Although coonhunting is not a very popular sport anymore, this is the reason Billy Colman purchased his dogs. In this instance, the Redbone Coonhound will often find the coon perched in a tree, and the dog will bellow until his human partner joins him at the foot of said tree. This means that names dealing with hunting such as Scout or Ranger are fitting for the breed. In addition, Redbone Coonhound owners might also give their pup a traditional Southern name such as Susie, Otis, or Dixie. 

Regardless of what you decide to name your Redbone Coonhound, keep in mind his propensity for loyalty and friendliness. Names like Buddy encompass the personality of the relationship you are likely to have with your new Redbone Coonhound.
