Normally a Coon dog wouldn't be friends with a raccoon, but Rock loves wrestling with Ringo, the raccoon his family rescued.

Note: One of the few All-American breeds, the Black and Tan Coonhound is a persistent, determined, honest hunter who will stay on track no matter the terrain or conditions. His name developed from his color and purpose - his coat is coal black with tan markings, and he is used to trail and tree raccoon.

Outgoing and friendly, the Black and Tan Coonhound likes to be with his family. Most are laid back in the house, but require moderate daily exercise on leash or in a fenced area.

Their instincts may lead them to chase and tree small animals and bark, so training is important. Their short coat requires minimal maintenance.

Because of his strong hunting instinct and specialized skills, the Black and Tan Coonhound is rarely thought of as a family dog. Still, for people who admire the hound's independent nature and sense of humor, he can make an excellent companion and at home he tends to be laidback, playful, and gentle.

    I have raised 3 coons in my life. 2 of them were bottle feed, and I love them all dearly. My ex was a hunter, so I've raised coons and foxes. They are so friendly! I love them! <3
