Walker Hound?

We recently adopted a lovely girl from a local rescue and they labeled her a Walker Hound. I hadn't heard of this breed before so I did some poking around online and she certainly does appear to be one.

I'd love to connect with other Walker Hound folks to discuss some of her peculiar behaviors and just generally gush over how darned cute these long ears are!

I do not have a Treeing Walker coonhound, but for about three years I worked for a person with 90 hounds, some of just about every coonhound breed (and plotts.) She, as well as the job in general, taught me a lot about their conformation, instincts and personalities. I have a soft spot for them, which doesn't work out so well for me as a fosterer because the ones that end up in need around here are ex hunters and too often not cat friendly enough to come here.

I'd love to see her, if you have any pictures

Gorgeous girl! Though her looks could easily peg her for a foxhound, with that climbing behavior I'd say the rescue is spot on- she is a beautiful TW coonhound It's not obvious from her body language that she feels insecure or anything, either, so I bet with continued loving, positive association and socialization with the world at large, she'll come out of her shell in time. Thanks for being such an active rescuer all these years! My hat is off to you.

She is definitely a walker and beautiful. I have hounds and the key is to keep her active and the best way to get her used to cats is to associate her with them and let her know any bad behavior twords them is not tolerated. My plott hound and walker at first balled up on my cat mainly for the fact they had never seen one lol now they dont notice them. Walmart carries a line of UKC toys and our hounds love them. Walkers are friendly,loving, and mellow but like to tree animals. Our walker has a distinct ball when he smells or sees something he likes. Anything I can help with ill be happy to

This post dates back three years ago. The original poster has most likely moved on.

Walkers are the best! I have one myself and couldn't wish for a better dog. He certainly has some silly habits that always make me laugh. It's rare to come across other folks who have coonhounds not used for hunting. Actually ironically the reason I ended up with mine (his name is general) is because he failed being a good hunting dog!
