Helen Lacy Gibbs is the granddaughter of George Washington Lacy, the brother prominently noted for his role in the breed, and started working behind Lacy Hog Dogs as a little girl. Helen is now in her eighties and has incredibly clear memories of the original Lacy Dogs. She has also been frustrated with the way her stories about the real Lacy Hog Dogs have been edited and misinterpreted. She decided it was time to get the accurate story out about the dogs once and for all, no stretching the truth or romanticizing of the facts, and asked the National Lacy Dog Association to make a video of her recollections.
We now have four videos on the history of the Lacy Hog Dog in the NLDA Archive. Interviewing Mrs. Gibbs and her son John was a truly amazing experience. We hope you enjoy these clips on the true history of the Lacy breed featuring someone who lived and worked with the original Lacy Dogs.

The video of Lacy Dogs on the History Channel’s Life After People is now online! Sadie, Brutus, Lucifer and Trapper did a great job, but the biggest hit was Jimmy Brooks, president of the National Lacy Dog Association. If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out. You can also view it on YouTube if you want to add it to your list of favorites.
Though Lacys excel as woods dog, they also do well bay pen dogs. Bay competitions are similar to herding trials. One or two dogs works to control a feral hog in a pen. They are judged on style, intensity and focus. Catching and holding is a disqualification.
These new videos show feature Lacys in the Two Dog division at the Bremond Bay Competition in May.
