Basic Info

The origin of the Treeing Tennessee Brindle will probably always be a mystery. It is known, however, that there was many old-time dogs that came from select little pockets from all over the country. These dogs were open trailers with good scenting power, very intelligent and courageous, and companionable with both men and dogs. The originators of the breed searched to find and promote that type of dog. There were many Cur-type hunting dogs at that time, but they concentrated on the type of dog that had the uncanny ability to locate and tree any game.

History

In the words of Treeing Tennessee Brindle Breeders founder, Rev Earl Phillips, "Our original breeding came from outstanding brindle tree dogs from every part of the country." Many came from the Appalachian Mountains, the Ozark Mountains, and places in between. In the early 1960's Rev. Earl Phillips wrote a column for a national hunting dog magazine. By way of his magazine column Rev. Earl Phillips gathered a wealth of information about these brindle colored Cur dog, and the people that had these dogs or knew about them. Those people who corresponded with Rev. Phillips commended these brindle Cur dogs on their hunting and treeing abilities. The dogs that they wrote about were open trailers with good scenting power, very intelligent, courageous but not ill, and very companionable dogs. There was a group of people that were trying to promote Cur dogs of different colors but none were trying to excessively find, preserve, and promote brindle Cur dogs. Early in 1967 Rev. Earl Phillips contacted many of the people that he had corresponded with about brindle Cur dogs. He suggested the formation of an organization to preserve and promote these brindle Curs. On March 21, 1967 the Treeing Tennessee Brindle Breeders Association was formed and recognized as a legal organization by the state of Illinois.
