Designated the State Dog in 2005, the Blue Lacy is named after the four Lacy brothers, who created the breed in the mid-late 1800s. While the breed's bloodlines are not certain, it is said to be a cross between a Greyhound, some sort of scent hound, and a native wild dog (possibly a coyote). The Blue Lacy was developed to be an excellent all-around dog, and proved itself to be an irreplaceable companion, hunter, and watchdog.
The Lacy is an intelligent, driven and brave breed. Though they are naturally territorial, Lacys make excellent, devoted companions and are quick to learn new skills. While often referred to as the Blue Lacy, Lacys can also be Red or Tri-Colored. These dogs have a smooth, tight coat and are not known to shed much. Lacys are active, alert, and excel when given physical and mental exercise. The breed is generally healthy and does well as an indoor and outdoor dog.
The Lacy is not recognized as a standard breed by any major kennel clubs.
