Dog Breed's Main Info
The Breed's History:
The Redbone is one of the breeds that can be labeled "Made in America". Like most of the Coonhound breeds, the Redbone descends from Foxhounds, Bloodhounds, and possibly Irish hounds. The man who did the most to develop the breed was named George E. L. Birdsong, a well-known foxhunter and dog breeder who lived in Georgia.
Many early Redbones had a black "saddle" over their back, giving rise to the nickname "saddlebacks". As breeders selected for a solid red color, the saddleback eventually disappeared. The United Kennel Club registered its first Redbone in 1902. It was the second Coonhound breed recognized by the UKC, after the Black and Tan.
The American Kennel Club recognized the Redbone in 2009. The breed ranks 122nd among the dogs registered by the AKC.
