The Bluetick Coonhood is a breed of dog, typically bred in the southern United States for hunting rodents and other prey.


The Lee Brothers were renowned dogbreeders in the Southwest at the turn of the 20th century. Ernest Lee, the eldest brother, was one of the instrumental founders of the Bluetick when it was established as a registered breed separate from the English.
