Health & Longevity

Average Life Span: 10-12 years
The Treeing Tennessee Brindle is considered a rather healthy purebred and does not have a lot of major health concerns associated with it. It is important that you work with a reputable breeder to ensure the health and longevity of your puppy.

While there are no main health conditions, you do want to make note of some of the secondary conditions that may occur and affect your pet. This includes ear infections, patellar luxation, and hip dysplasia.

Ear infections are common in all dogs who have low hanging ears and your Treeing Tennessee Brindle is not free from them. It is important that you pay attention to the cleanliness of his or her ears and clean them when needed. If you notice a problem or think that an ear infection may be forming, speak with your veterinarian right away.

Patellar luxation is another condition that can occur in your Treeing Tennessee Brindle. This condition is best known as a dislocated knee. It is painful for your pup and may make it difficult for him or her to walk or put pressure on the leg. This condition often occurs more in females than in males.

Hip dysplasia occurs when the hip joint is not properly formed or when it does not fit into the socket properly. This can lead to unnecessary wear on the cartilage that protects the joint. When the cartilage is worn down, the hip joint becomes painful. Your pup may have difficulty moving up and down from different positions.

The Treeing Tennessee Brindle’s life expectancy is between 10 to 12 years.

Temperament & Train-ability

The Treeing Tennessee Brindle is an easy going pup that is considered fairly active when engaged in play and is all around friendly.

This breed of dog loves to be social with other dogs, so it is important for you to socialize him or her and take them to the dog park or somewhere else where they can get the interaction they require.

The Treeing Tennessee Brindle is considered affectionate and loves people unconditionally. You will find that this pup does not have an aggressive bone in its body and is very tolerant of children.

This breed is considered intelligent, so you should use that to your advantage and begin to train them on commands and house breaking right away. You will find that your puppy responds best to commands that are firm, but gentle in nature.

One of the worst qualities that the Treeing Tennessee Brindle has is that it barks, and it barks a lot. If this is something that you do not want to happen in your home, it is important to train them immediately. While they do bark a lot, it does not mean that they are a guard or watch dog. In fact, they do not have the tendencies to be either.

The Treeing Tennessee Brindle is not a very active dog, but they do require some exercise and you should allow them to run around in the yard or take them on walks throughout the neighborhood.


Your Treeing Tennessee Brindle puppy is not going to have a lot of grooming requirements, and it will stay this way throughout his or her lifetime. The coat on your puppy is short and smooth. You should brush your pup’s coat once per week to ensure no tangles have occurred.

You do not need to bathe your puppy on any type of schedule and can do so when he or she is dirty. If you find a dirty spot on your Treeing Tennessee Brindle’s coat, you can simply wipe it down with a wet towel.

In addition to brushing and baths, you should keep an eye on your Treeing Tennessee Brindle’s nails. You should trim them once a month or as often as needed to keep them short. You do not want your puppy’s nails to get too long, as this is painful for them and can lead to splitting or breaking of the nail.


The Treeing Tennessee Brindle is considered a low active breed, but it is fairly large in size and does have some nutrition demands that must be met. It is best that you feed this breed a nutritious and high-quality dry dog food.

When you choose a brand for your puppy, make sure you look for one that is packed full of vitamins, protein, and calcium. You also want the dog food to contain wholesome ingredients such as rice, chicken, red meat, and vegetables.

You may want to feed your puppy wet food as a treat, and while this is okay occasionally, you do not want to make it a habit because your puppy will not receive any nutrients from the food and it can lead to obesity, especially if your Treeing Tennessee Brindle does not receive the exercise it requires.
