Developed only within the last thirty years, the Treeing Tennessee Brindle Dog is a truly Rocky-Top pup. This hound dog was founded and further developed by the Reverend Earl Phillips. While the Treeing Tennessee Brindle is a relatively new breed, he is the result of mixing the best brindle scent hounds from a variety of locations, such as the Ozark Mountains (Missouri and Arkansas) and the Appalachian Mountains (Tennessee and Kentucky, to be sure). True to his name, the Treeing Tennessee Brindle Dog is bred to chase their prey up a tree and bay until his human hunting companion comes to the treed area.

Treeing Tennessee Brindle Dog Name Considerations

What name is appropriate for a Treeing Tennessee Brindle dog? First, one can look at the purpose of the dog in order determine a name deserving of the breed. 

The Treeing Tennessee Brindle was developed by the Reverend Earl Phillips to be a hunting dog. But, even more than that, the Treeing Tennessee Brindle was meant to be a dog that "treed" its quarry. The term "treeing" means that not only does this hunting dog seek out its prey using scent, but, once the prey has been sighted, the dog will chase the prey into a tree. The dog will then bark, or "bay" until their hunting companion can join them. Because the Treeing Brindle is primarily a hunting dog, names fitting of a hunter are appropriate. For males, names such as Hank, Ranger, or Scout are most fitting. For female hunting partners, Dixie, Daisy, or Jessie are also quite appropriate. 

Another area of consideration is the history of the Treeing Tennessee Brindle dog. The Treeing Brindle is a fairly new hunting breed. When Reverend Phillips began breeding dogs to achieve what would become the Brindle, he specifically sought out brindle colored Curs. The Cur is traditionally known for its tenacity. Names such as Beast, Chief, or Butch evoke thoughts of toughness. While any name is suitable for the Treeing Brindle, those that depict the dog's personality and purpose fit the dog the best.
