Summary
Fast and muscular, the Bluetick stands out for his striking coat. He has a pleasantly pleading expression and a big bawl mouth–meaning he has a long, drawn out bark.

Although he’s a hunter first and foremost, the Bluetick can be a fine housedog and loves his people. Full Bluetick Coonhound profile on DogTime.com
