In the words of Rev. Earl Phillips, founder of Treeing Tennessee Brindle Breeders: ""Our original breeding stock came from excellent Brindle Tree dogs from every part of the country."" Many came from the Appalachian Mountains, the Ozark Mountains, and beach locations.
In the early 1960s, the Rev. Earl Phillips wrote a column for a national Hunting Dog magazine. Through his journal column, Rev. Phillips collected information about these brindle-colored cue dogs and the people who knew or knew about them. Those who corresponded with Rev. Phillips praised these brindle taxing dogs for their hunting and tree planting abilities. There was a group that was trying to promote curb dogs of different colors, but no one was specifically trying to find, preserve, and promote dogs with brindles.
In early 1967, Rev. Phillips brindled and contacted several people about dogs. He suggested the formation of an organization to protect and promote these dogs. On March 21, 1967, the Treeing Tennessee Brindle Breeders Association was formed and recognized as a legal organization by the state of Illinois. The purpose of this association is to breed small-sized dog brindles in color, with short ears, and in a structure different from the plot. The dog may have dew claws and white legs and breasts. By selective breeding, this dog can have great smelling power, have an open trailer with good sound, and can retain the dog's great supernatural ability by doing Old Brindle to tree all kinds of game.
