Default Looking for a Bluetick pup

I grew up in rural East Texas where hunting and trapping were a way of life. As a child, my greatgrandfather always had a mixture of hounds of any shape and size. But the one that sticks out the most in my memory is "Booger" his bluetick. Through my life I have had many different breeds of dogs and since moving to New Mexico have been without one for quite sometime now. I have just recently started looking for a dog foe myself and have decided on a Bluetick, but am having trouble finding a breeder within reasonable distance. Can anyone help?

Kinabrew, welcome to the forum! Have you tried a rescue group in New Mexico? There are a few hound rescue groups there, I'm just not sure about the distance.

Locally, Australian Cattle Dogs are called "Blueticks." I don't know if this is regional or not.

What's a "reasonable distance"? You might try checking with New Mexico Bluetick Coonhound Rescue and Texas Bluetick Coonhound Rescue, on-line.

Thanks for the help. As for the reasonable distance, I'd like to find one within 500 miles or so. Mainly, where I can checkout the breeders facilities becauce I don't to deal with a puppy mill. I've had bad luck in the past

Easterners don't measure distance the way people in Texas and the Southwest do! They can't go very far without crossing several state lines. Agility live in Oklahoma so she knows. what far is!
Easterners haven't 'seen' far until they hit Western Nebraska or the Dakotas!
Down your why every thing is far away!

There seem to be a number of breeders in the western half of Texas. There are some between Lubbock and Ft. Worth and northwest of Ft. Worth. Just do a few searches and you'll find listings for kennels. Also, you might consider a Cameron Hound - blueticks in the southwest bred for big game hunting. There are breeders in New Mexico.
