My husband has owned and hunted English Redtick coon hounds for over 35 years. His first English Redtick was Dillon' Hatchie River Jim. One of Jim's sons placed in the World Championship Hunt. In 1996 we bought our son a pair of UKC/PKC English Redtick puppies, they were grandsons of Ole Jim. Jim was the best dog anywhere around and one if his grandsons, Dillon's Hatchie River Rebel was a fine dog. Cold nosed and a great tree dog. Jim would bark 2 times per second. We lost Jim in 1988 and Rebel in the winter of 2011 at the age of 14. He had treed a coon not 2 weeks before he died. Now we have a male and female that are 8 months old and they go back to Jim as well. The female Rosie, is already getting up on the tree with the older dogs. She really wants to tree! They are family to us, we all love hounds. All they want is love and to please you.

My husband went hunting down in south Alabama about 7 years ago and he came home with a bluetick puppy that we named Daisymae, We had her for about 2 weeks and I said she has to go!!! She was all puppy and only people that have had a bluetick puppy know what I am talking about.(LOL)So we gave her to one of my Husbands friends, I CRYED FOR 24 HOURS. So we went back and got her and she is still here today, and THE BEST DOG WE HAVE EVER HAD!!! WE LOVE OUR DAISYMAE!!!!
