Abstract:
Johannes Plott came to America from Germany in 1750, eventually settling in New Bern, before moving on to Cabarrus County. He brought with him two Hanoverian-type Schweisshunds (bloodhounds) and soon became a dog breeder. The Plott hound is an intelligent animal, has a formidable reputation as a hunter, and tends to be a one-person dog. In 1946, the dog was recognized by the United Kennel Club, and years later by the American Kennel Club. On August 12, 1989, the North Carolina General Assembly officially recognized the Plott hound as the State Dog. The Plott hound is one of only four breeds started in this country.
