Plott Hound - This is our dog Jackson and I finally figured out what breed he is! He is an all around great dog! So happy we rescued him from a shelter!

The Plott Hound is a large scent hound, originally bred for hunting boar. The Plott Hound is one of the least known breeds of dog in the United States, even though they are the state dog of North Carolina. Of the seven breeds of United Kennel Club (UKC) registered coonhounds, the Plott Hound does not trace its ancestry to the foxhound. And, of those seven breeds, we can be most certain of the Plott’s heritage and the men most responsible for its development.
