I've seen some curs that were outstanding on squirrels, and could turn around that night and be outstanding on coon, and then could be darn good on rabbits, but they push rabbits harder and faster than most people want.

A tuff combination to shoot for, I'd say. Daytime coon would be far less a problem rabbit hunting than night time rabbits would be while coon hunting.

A squirrel dog chasing rabbits would be an off game fault, just like chasing deer. Serious squirrel hunters would correct that. So finding an older finished dog like that would be very hard.

For rabbits and coons buy a beagle and a hound.

I agree, you should buy a beagle for rabbits and a walker for coons.I don't know much about coon dogs ,but if you find a hard hunting- not to fast-with good line control you'll get your limit if there, there

coon hounds

I have had my fair share of coon hounds and if you try to teach it to run rabbits you might have a very disapointing nights, when your dog is running a rabbit into the next county and your chasing after it. Also i have blue tic left and i would vouch to say she would catch the rabbit or end up getting shot for being to close to the rabbit. Best bet is to get you a beagle and a seprate dog for coon hunting.
