My daddy took his Bluetick Coonhound out every night he could, and they never came back empty handed. They are intelligent animals, and they have a sharp eye. Blueticks are also beautiful dogs with their gray and blue spotted appearance. They are active animals and do not enjoy being chained up or kept in an enclosed space for a long period of time. They need exercise, so they are ready for their next hunt.
Blueticks are loud when they get in a barking match with other dogs, or when they see another animal and give chase. They can also become aggressive over food or territory, especially if they are male. I am not able to describe our Bluetick Coonhound as loveable. He was trained to hunt, and he did it very well, but he was not a lapdog. He was strong, energetic, and healthy. That's how I would describe him. His personality did not shine through on a personal level.
