Possible to be several coonhounds mixed into one?
My rescued girl Abby is 7 months old. I was told she was possibly beagle and treeing walker coonhound. She's rather small for 7 mo, about 28lbs and 17 inches at the shoulder. I know coonhounds are bigger. Was told she appears to have american foxhound in her (due to head/face) and possibly TWCH (due to body). I wondered if she was redtick coonhound due to her color but I'm suspecting not (she is ticked but not to a great extent). Anyway I saw pics of her and some of her sisters at 8 wks old. One has coloring of black & tan coonhound, two possibly redbone, and another tricolor like a walker. All had floppy ears/typical hound faces. Is it possible to have a few of these coonhounds mixed? Guess the big question is what she could be mixed with... fairly certain Am Foxhound and *some* type of coonhound, but not totally sure.

Yea there could be a few different dogs in your dogs past. If you really wanted to find out. You can get a test that will give you an idea of what and how much of each breed is in your dogs past. You can buy them at petsmart. I am not sure how good they really are, I have never talked to anyone that has ever tryed them. But it could let you know. Good luck.
