The history of the Redbone Coonhound began in Georgia in the 1800s with the mixture of bloodhounds and foxhounds. The original name came from a breeder named Peter Redbone. It is still not decided if... More > the true name came from Peter Redbone or because of their cooler. At that time, any dog that was a great hunting and treeing dog and was red was called a redbone. Then a couple breeders got together with the intent of developing a good hunter that was red with speed and agility. The first results of this breeding were red with black saddle markings and were called "saddlebacks".
