The Plott Hound is medium to large in size, and has a sturdy and muscular build. He has an eager and intelligent expression, and large drooping ears. The Plott Hound also has webbed feet. The coat of these dogs is glossy, close, and dense, and the coloring includes blue or brindle, often with black markings. The height of these dogs is 22-26 inches, and the weight 50-65 pounds.

A cheerful and happy dog, the Plott Hound is a sociable creature that can make a great family pet. These dogs have stamina and determination, and make great companion dogs and pets for active owners and families. Loyal and loving, the Plott Hound has plenty of affection to give, and thrives on the affection and companionship of his owner, which means that he is not well suited to those with little time to dedicate to a pet. These dogs are very courageous, and will not think twice about standing up to a much larger creature. The Plott Hound will need to be socialized early on, and although he is intelligent and quick to learn he can be a challenge when it comes to obedience training.

The sweet natured Plott Hound gets along well with children, as well as with other pets. These dogs have been bred to hunt big game, and if they catch a scent they will be on it right away, which means that you should ensure that the play and exercise area that you provide is safe and secure. The Plott Hound needs plenty of exercise and plenty of space in order to burn off all that energy, so he is not suited to apartment life or for inactive families. He will get along well with strangers in most cases. He has a tendency to bark and raise the alarm if something is amiss, making him an effective watchdog, but he is far too docile to make it as a guard dog.

The Plott Hound is an American dog, and unlike other American hounds has no British ancestry. These dogs have been bred to hunt big game, and are pack dogs that hunt in groups of up to ten at times. The breed received official recognition in the mid 1940s.
The life expectancy of the Plott Hound is around 10-14 years, and this is one of the healthier dog breeds around. One thing to watch out for is the speed at which these dogs may consumer their food, which can put them at risk of gastric torsion.
