State Dog of Texas

The Blue Lacy Dog - Texas' State Dog.


Our logo and clothes exemplify the authentic spirit of the Lone Star State. 

Our State Dog was bred and named by the Lacy brothers of Burnet County, Texas in the 1850’s. Just a few years after the Republic of Texas was born, the Blue Lacy breed was created. In 2005, the Blue Lacy dog was designated the official breed of Texas. The Blue Lacy is known for its speed, hunting, and survival traits. This is a result of the fact that the breed originates from a coyote, greyhound, and scenthound mix. Much like many Texans, the Blue Lacy is a working breed known for their fierce loyalty and active lifestyle.
