Texas: Blue Lacy

Only one of the 11 state dogs in the U.S. has yet to begin the American Kennel Club's breed recognition process: the Blue Lacy. This is a working dog created by four brothers — George, Ewin, Frank and Harry Lacy — who moved from Kentucky to Texas in in 1858. The resolution signed in 2005 to recognize the Blue Lacy as Texas' state dog reads, "The Blue Lacy is a Texas native, a working dog bred to play an essential role in ranch operations, at a time when ranches themselves became one of the iconic Texas symbols, and a dog that has more than pulled its weight on many a Texas spread."
