Unhappy Hound dogs- are they normal?

Hi I'm new and at the end of my rope. I adopted a coonhound last summer several months after my 18 year old mutt died. My Great Pyr had enough time alone and was really getting lonely. Anyway he has been a VERY challenging dog and I don't know if its the "hound" part of him or if he is just the stupidist dog I've ever met.

He eats everything and I mean everything. We cannot leave anything edible out, we even have to put our loaves of bread in the fridge. The other day I made two batches of blueberry muffins, rotated my body a few inches to the right to toss a spoon in the sink, and half his body was on the counter and all the muffins were gone. He will take off your arm if you have a piece of food in your hand. He has eaten my kids dolls. My husbands golf gloves. the fish food. My bottle of vitamins. A 3lb london broil. My kids can't feed him because when you put his food in his bowl he knocks them over to knock the bowl out of their hands.
When we get done with dinner and finish cleaning the kitchen and go to finally sit down in the living room, you can hear him scavenging around for like 30 minutes, banging around trying to open and close cabinets and stuff its nerve racking so a lot of times we end up having to lock him up for a bit.
The vet says he's healthy. He is actually at the "high end of his recommended weight" and we have to feed him with a slow feed bowl (he's on his second because he's eaten one).

This dog is crazy. Is this a hound thing from anyones experience? this is really just the tip of the iceberg with him. My other dog just watches him like "".
