Plott is a large group of hounds, native to the United States, originated in the 18th century. Plott is intelligent, alert and confident, with a distinctive hound color, traditionally used to deal with large prey. In addition to its strength and strong muscles, the improved plott combines athletic ability and courage.
Introduction to plott
Plott was the first raccoon dog. This large, gregarious dog has been bred by the prot family for nearly 250 years. They are used to hunt bears and raccoons in the Appalachian Mountains, the Blue Ridge region, and the Smoky Mountains in the eastern United States. Unlike the loud calls of other raccoon dogs, Plott has a strange shrill. Their lean bones and strong muscles ensure that they can work day and night. They like to gobble up a lot of food, which is bound to suffer from fatal gastric volvulus. It's hard to see this kind of dog outside the southern states of the United States. And they're rarely raised as partners alone.
The development of plott
In 1750, 16-year-old Johannes GeorgPlott bought five schweishhunds from Germany and brought them back to his new home in dayanshan. It turns out that these dogs and their offspring are great big animal cold searchers, especially for bears. In the early 20th century, crossbreeding with other shape dogs was carried out to improve the quality of prot dogs. This time this breed introduced the black saddle tiger spotted dog. Although they are mainly used for hunting bears, boars and cougars, many poodles are also good at catching raccoons to trees. There are more raccoon hunters than bear hunters, and they are found to be in great need of these dogs. In 1946, the United Dog Club recognized the breed, so it had its official name "Plott.". In 2007, the AKC recognized Plott as a hunting dog.
Plott is helpful, loyal and brave, but also willful and independent. They are wary of strangers, but they usually get familiar quickly. They don't live in groups with other dogs, as some hounds do.
