My Bluetick Was Not Meant To Be a House Dog

By

Maine, United States

Posted October 5, 2013

I loved my bluetick more than life itself, but she was very problematic. First the good. She was sweet, loyal, and affectionate. She loved to cuddle and she was great with my kids, even when they were babies.

Now the not so good. She barked constantly and her bark was piercingly loud. She was very hyper. I could not walk her enough. She never got tired. And she never got very good at walking on a lead. She was always pulling. She was also very difficult to house train. And the biggest problem of all--she was so protective of us that she became aggressive and bit someone.
