Bluetick Hound Beagle Mix - Bluetick Beagle History

All hybrid or designer dogs are tough to get a good read on as there isn’t much history to them. Breeding specific dogs like this has become common in the last twenty years or so even though I am sure that this mixed breed found it’s share of dogs to the shelter due to accidental breeding. We will take a closer look at the history of both parent breeds below.  If you are looking at breeders for new, designer dogs please beware of Puppy Mills. These are places that mass produce puppies, specifically for profit and don’t care at all about the dogs. If you have a few minutes. Please sign our petition to stop puppy mills.

Beagle History:

Dogs of similar size and purpose to the modern Beagle can be traced in Ancient Greece back to around the 5th century BC. Since medieval times, the word beagle was used as a generic description for the smaller hounds, though these dogs differed considerably from the modern breed. Miniature breeds of beagle-type dogs were known from the times of Edward II and Henry VII, who both had packs of Glove Beagles, so named since they were small enough to fit on a glove, and Queen Elizabeth I kept a breed known as a Pocket Beagle, which stood 8 to 9 inches at the shoulder. Small enough to fit in a "pocket" or saddlebag, they rode along on the hunt. The larger hounds would run the prey to ground, then the hunters would release the small dogs to continue the chase through underbrush. Elizabeth I referred to the dogs as her singing beagles and often entertained guests at her royal table by letting her Pocket Beagles cavort amid their plates and cups 19th-century sources refer to these breeds interchangeably and it is possible that the two names refer to the same small variety. Reverend Phillip Honeywood established a Beagle pack in Essex, England in the 1830s and it is believed that this pack formed the basis for the modern Beagle breed.

Bluetick Hound History:

Bluetick Coonhound Breed History. The Bluetick Coonhound originated in Louisiana from the Bleu de Gascogne Hound of southwest France, as well as the English Foxhound, The Cur dog, the American Foxhound and the Black and Tan Virginia Foxhound. Bred to hunt, they excelled at tracking, especially at night. The Bluetick Coonhound is a fairly new dog breed. It was developed in the southern United States in the early 1900s, for the specific purpose of hunting raccoons and other small wild animals. Its ancestors include the Grand Bleu de Gascogne, the Staghound and other French hounds that were brought to America during the early days of colonization. Traders, dog dealers and other people traveling through isolated rural areas of the deep South could not help but notice those beautifully–voiced hound dogs, which contributed to most of the present Coonhound breeds. American hunters found the French hounds to be too slow on the tracking trail. However, when they crossed them with American hounds, they found that the offspring had better cold-nosed trailing abilities and improved endurance.

Bluetick Hound Beagle Mix - Bluetick Beagle Personality

Like all hybrids, you have to look to the parents to get a good read on how they will likely behave. The Beagle is one of the sweetest dogs you will ever encounter and the Bluetick Hound is too. This might be one of the most fun loving and friendly dogs that you will ever encounter.This should make a very friendly, family oriented dog. If it takes after the Bluetick Hound, they might be an alpha with a strong personality and needs a strong owner with experience who can set themselves as pack leader. Just because they are small doesn’t mean they don’t want to be in charge. They should get along well with other animals if exposed and socialized properly as well. They are somewhat capable of independence, or alone time when the house is noisy or full. She responds well to positive reinforcement, like all dogs.

Bluetick Hound Beagle Mix - Bluetick Beagle Health

All dogs have the potential to develop genetic health problems as all breeds are susceptible to some things more than others. However, the one positive thing about getting a puppy is that you can avoid this as much as possible. A breeder should absolutely offer a health guarantee on puppies. If they won’t do this, then look no more and don’t consider that breeder at all. A reputable breeder will be honest and open about health problems in the breed and the incidence with which they occur. Health clearances prove that a dog has been tested for and cleared of a particular condition.

The Dalmatian mixed with the Poodle might be prone to Epilepsy, dwarfism, hypothyroidism and eye problems like retinal atrophy, glaucoma and "cherry eye"

Note that these are just common problems in both breeds.



Bluetick Hound Beagle Mix - Bluetick Beagle Care

What are the grooming requirements?

This will be a moderately shedding dog with shorter hair. The Bluetick Hound doesn’t really shed that much, but the beagle sheds like crazy. Either way, get ready to invest in a good vacuum if you want to keep your floors clean! Give them baths as needed, but not so much that you dry out their skin. Never tie your dog up outside - that is inhumane and not fair to him.

What are the exercise requirements?

Plan on taking them for extremely long walks and hikes to keep their energy level down. The Bluetick Hound should really help offset the higher energy of the beagle. This exercise will keep them from being destructive. A tired dog is a good dog.

What are the training requirements?

This is an intelligent dog that will be a little bit challenging to train. Both of these dogs can be extremely stubborn and are challenging to train at times. The best thing you can do is break the sessions into shorter daily sessions to keep their attention span higher. It might have a prey drive and be disposed to running for and chasing small prey, but if handled properly this can be managed. All dogs respond best to positive reinforcement. So make sure to praise her when she does well. She is an intelligent dog who loves to please, and loves a physical challenge. The more exercise she gets the easier she will be to train. Proper socialization is imperative to all dogs and puppies. Make sure to take her to the park and doggy day care to get her around as many people and dogs as possible.



Bluetick Hound Beagle Mix - Bluetick Beagle Feeding

A lot of times diet is done on a per-dog basis. Each one is unique and has different dietary requirements. Most dogs in the U.S. are overweight. A mix like this one that is prone to hip and elbow dysplasia should really be on fish oil and glucosamine and chondroitin supplements as soon as possible.

Overfeeding any dog is not a good idea as that can really exacerbate health problems such as elbow and hip dysplasia.

A good diet to look into is Raw Food Diet. A raw food diet will be especially good for the Wolf background.
