"Ruoff! I mean Hi! My name is Buck. I am a Walking Coonhound / Plott Hound mix! I was born in southern Oregon, but my ancestors came from the Deep South. I was bred for scent tracking and hunting big game, but I am being trained to find missing people! I love to howl at the deer as they run by our house and I love to play hide-and-go-seek with my master who is my best buddy! My master also has two cats, who I like to chase but my master doesn't like that. I love the snow and the mud! I hate to take baths afterwards, though! Did I mention i have a girlfriend? Her name is Ruby. She is a red tricolored Australian Shepherd. Our masters are friends so I can see her a lot. Every time I touch her she growls! That’s just her way of telling me she loves me!"
The Plott Walker is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Plott Hound and the Treeing Walker Coonhound. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
