Bluetick Coonhound


The hardy Bluetick Coonhound is at its best when on the job; they are energetic workers who combine physical strength with mental acuity. Those talents make the Bluetick wilful, and harder than most to train; Blueticks often think they know best. But they CAN be trained, and when they are, they can be great additions to a family, as they are alert and affectionate around children, and deeply loyal.
