Overview
Originating in the United States of America, the Treeing Tennessee Brindle breed is a favorite hunting companion. Noted for their powerful scenting abilities, this breed is highly skilled in trailing, locating, and treeing squirrels and raccoons. Although this breed has been used for many generations, Treeing Tennessee Brindle's were not officially given a name until 1967 and are slowly, but steadily gaining in popularity.
Character
Built for speed and intelligence, the Treeing Tennessee Brindle is smaller in size than other typical Hound breeds. They are courageous, well-built, possess cat-like feet, and small ears. This is an unpretentious breed that are often referred to as the breed that have "heart and try" in abundance.
Temperament
The Treeing Tennessee Brindle breed is affectionate, loyal, and easy-going. They are passionate hunters that possess great spirit. This breed does well with other dogs, but is not recommended for a home with non-canine pets. Treeing Tennessee Brindle's do best with older considerate children. Their exuberance may be overwhelming to small children. They are highly energetic, cheerful, and enthusiastic. The Treeing Tennessee Brindle will bark to alert their family to suspicious activity. They make wonderful hunting and family companions.
Care
The Treeing Tennessee Brindle breed requires regular brushing with a firm bristle brush to remove loose and dead hair. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary. It is important to routinely check the ears for debris and to keep the nails trimmed. This breed has no known health issues.
Coat
The Treeing Tennessee Brindle's coat is smooth, sleek, dense, and short. They are an average shedder.
Training
The Treeing Tennessee Brindle is extremely sensitive. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed training methods. If training is done with neglect or abuse there are catastrophic consequences, for this is a breed that is all "heart". Training must always be done with respect, love, fairness, and consistency. Treeing Tennessee Brindle's do well with obedience and socialization.
Activity
The Treeing Tennessee Brindle breed is not recommended for apartment dwelling. They are highly active and require a rural setting where they can free roam to hone their hunting skills. They enjoy time with their family and prefer to be outdoors.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Treeing Tennessee Brindle puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

The Treeing Tennessee Brindle is not known to be a big water dog, but they can enjoy cooling off if they are introduced to water at a young age in a positive way.

I have a fenced yard where they will have any time access. I am a single adult that works all day and isn't much of an outdoorswoman. Will running and playing all day provide enough physical and mental stimulation for the TTB?

No, the Treeing Tennessee Brindle needs an average of 3 - 4 hours of hard exercise a day. They are a hunting dog and need to run and have lots of mental stimulation. Unless you plan on becoming outdoory, I wouldn't suggest getting one.

Has anyone heard of Treeing Tennessee Brindle with a purple tongue? Has anyone heard of Treeing Tennessee Brindle with a purple tongue?

Yes I actually have one, the tongue color most likely comes from the dog having a little chow in him. Chows have the purple tongue and the genre is dominant, so even if very little chow is present they can have the colored tongue.

Treeing Tennessee Brindles may be slow to pick up on their first trick, but once they get one, they are fast to learn their next, as they understand that you are expecting something physical out of them. This breed is highly "heart" driven and is easily motivated by praise, whereas other breeds require treats alone. This breed loves praise and attention so as long as you follow through your training with not only treats, but lots of praise, he'll do his best to follow through with your commands.
