Hi Clairedee and welcome, feel free to share pics of your Blue tick here if you like.
I didn't know the breed before we got Bubba, his parents were the first ones we met, but if he is a good representative of the breed, then they are awesome dogs. When I say representative, I mean in temperament and ease of living with, rather than conformation
Bubba is 8 months old. I like the rest of your 'pack' as well, please introduce them
Here are the rest of mine, Muttley on the left is a crossbreed who I rescued when we lived in England, and bought to Canada with us, and on the right Badger our JRT, who has just had his 5th birthday recounts, yup my goodness he is 5 already
