Bud - The Coon Dog

Bud was only with our family for a short time but we enjoyed every minute of it. He was trained to coon hunt before we acquired him. He was extremely talented at what he did. He'd been in several competitions, taking the cake at most all of them and was deemed a Night Champion. If you have a coon dog for a family dog ONLY you may be robbing it of its lively hood. They thrive on the hunt! Bud was extremely vocal but for obvious reasons. He had to be contained at all times or his nose would lead him away almost instantly. He was affectionate but definitely not a kids dog as his main purpose in life was to hunt. He wanted to please you and obey your commands but a majority of the time only when out hunting. His coat was short and very easy to care for. He was built like a brick building. Bud's bloodline was immaculate! If you want a Bluetick for hunting you're barking up the right tree, if you want them for a family pet you better be ready to appease their natural senses through other outlets.
