The Lacys are allegedly a result of crossing greyhounds, scent hounds, and coyotes. They are known to be extremely intelligent and easy to train, but they do not like noise, and they're prone to become nervous if the environment is too loud. Reprimanding them harshly doesn't work well; they respond better to firm but quiet commands.
A Blue Lacy is quick, strong, agile, active, and alert. They were originally created to work feral hogs, but soon developed into a multitalented working breed for ranchers, cowboys, hunters, and trappers. They are bold and brave, and will protect their families and property.
Just like all working breeds they need activity and mental stimulation; if they get bored they might invent something to do, and these tasks are rarely jobs humans appreciate. They're well suited for agility, fly ball, and other active tasks.
This breed is hardy and requires little maintenance. The average life span is around 16 years. There are 16-year old Lacys still working cattle and hunting!
