Is the Bluetick Coonhound Mix right for you?

Species group:

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

All mixed breeds are individuals but if you have a dog that appears to be mostly Bluetick Coonhound, it's useful to take a look at the likely traits it will inherit from that breed. Although the Bluetick Coonhood was only recognized by the American Kennel Club in 2009, this splendid breed from Louisiana enjoys a history that goes back to the hunting hounds of England and France. Like its foxhound ancestors, this speedy animal is determined in pursuit of its prey and enjoys roaming in the outdoors with its human companion. Like other hounds, the Bluetick becomes devoted to its people and should never be neglected-- and you should expect the mix to demand similar attention.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, but you can expect a lean, muscular coonhound type with a lot of energy and desire for the hunt.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's always difficult to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, if you've got a lot of Bluetick Coonhound in the mix, you need to consider these possible traits. The dog may be reserved with strangers or even greet them with a characteristic howl. They may drool heavily, especially when they see food. When left alone for long periods, they are highly likely to get bored or lonely. These mixes require some space and can be destructive when they don't get enough exercise.

Their strong sense of smell, powerful prey drive, and tendency to roam mean they probably need to be leash-trained to keep them from running, chasing, and getting lost outdoors.
