Description

The Bluetick Walker is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Bluetick Coonhound and the Treeing Walker Coonhound. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

"This is a picture of Lucy at three months. She is a Bluetick-Walker mix. The Walker gives her a smaller size and added speed and the Bluetick gives her added strength and deeper ticking. She is now three years old and has become the perfect dog. She was very easy to train for tracking and has not let me down at all. So far, three successful finds on deer in heavy brush. She has absolutely no fear when she is in the rough country and has gone on long treks always to return to home base with tail high and tongue low. I also have her litter mate that was the runt of the litter. She resembles the Walker breed much more and they work wonderfully as a team. They are great with people, but very competitive with other dogs. Not aggressive, but competitive. As noted in your description these dogs are not street savvy, so be careful in the city. However, I can turn them out in the country and feel confident they will find their way back to their starting point, even after long outings alone. I will point out that it takes work and a firm hand to train them as they are headstrong and view all animals other than dogs as something to mess with. I finally got them to leave the ranch cats alone, but they will still go after strange cats with gusto."
