Bluetick Coonhound   Hound, Working Dog, Wash-and-Wear


The Bluetick Coonhound is a strong, wiry athlete (27” tall, up to 80 lbs), skilled at hunting and treeing raccoons and other small game. He can stay on tracks few other breeds could hope to manage, and he loves his job. He needs work to stay happy: if not in a hunting home, agility or rally events can be a great way to channel his energy.  The Bluetick Coonhound sports a short, low-maintenance coat.
