Smokey X brother joins WVLT tailgate party

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The owner of Davis Branch Blue Ticks stopped by the Local 8 News This Morning, "Tailgate Party," to introduce us to Smokey's half-brother, Bandit!

Travis from Knoxville got Bandit in March 2011 from Davis Branch Blueticks.

"I've been privileged to be Smokey's breeder," says Wendy Davis.

Smokey X is a Davis Branch Bluetick hound.

Davis Branch Blueticks is located in Shelbyville, Tennessee. Davis says they have been breeding blue tick hounds since 2004, and in 2012 started breeding Smokey's family line.
