  1. Hello, look I wanted to mention that the photograph of the two Bluetick Coonhound is not exactly of this breed, I say that this breed has ears longer and falls and the size is even lower. The breed of the dogs of photography are the Braco German short hair, that is enough because I possess 3. Well I hope that they can learn and correct it, and even better if you can put race above in the menu, Thank you

  2. Hello Juanp:

    Thank you very much for the correction. The truth is that, We try to take great care of the theme of the photographs, because often appear erroneous photos on website, and there are races (especially in the world of hounds) to us it is complicated a bit…

    We have already solved, and in addition, Thanks to your comment I've seen in the blue Grand of Gascony, I had put the photo of the Bluetick…. What a mess!!

    They are similar although the big blue, does not so fat head.

    Just when I edited this entry I hesitated quite, because the name of the dog gives a clue to the color… But, well, Thank you already cleared the doubt.

    Many thanks, Once again.

    Greetings and welcome.

    PD: The Group of dogs Braco, is in the process of Edition, That's why it's not on the menu yet., next week publish them.
