Dog Weathervane – Coonhound – Black and Tan Standing

American Coonhound, Black and Tan Weather Vane


This Black and Tan Coonhound Dog Weathervane is fabricated from copper sheet in swell-bodied style. The classic stance pictured is a portrait of the customer’s dog. We would be happy to work from your photos to adjust this design to your specific vision. Our dogs feature glass eyes with the color chosen when your order is placed.

Here, we also applied optional gold leaf to the dog’s muzzle and paws, to replicate the dog’s tan markings. These bright gilded areas will remain in contrast to the weathering copper for many decades.

The Black and Tan Coonhound is used principally for trailing and treeing raccoons. It runs game entirely by scent. The courage of the Coonhound also makes him proficient on the hunt for deer, bear, mountain lion and other big game, though few states permit hunting antlered animals with dogs. The general impression of Coonhounds is that of power, agility, and alertness, with the ability to cover ground swiftly with powerful rhythmic strides. Each hound has its own distinctive voice and they are often recognizable to their owners from a great distance.
