Raccoons are one of the six hounds developed by American settlers to provide a stable source of meat and fur during the expansion of the new nation to the south and west. The Coonhound is often depicted in pop culture as lazy ol 'dogs who put their lives away on the front porch. But anyone who has been on a "night hunt" in search of a clever, night raccoon will tell you that Redbone and his Coonhound cousin are among the dog's most tireless and steadfast followers.
