I’m not much of a hunter. OK, I don’t hunt. At the tender age of 57, I’m looking at entering the hunting fraternity, courtesy members of TTAG’s Texas crew. One good reason to do it: owning a hunting dog. Is there anything more wonderful than watching a canine bred for the job doing its job? Can’t think of anything right now. Meanwhile . . .

desantis blue logo no back 4 smallSchnauzers. Miniature schnauzers. Hey, I didn’t choose them. But I love them and they’re pretty good alarm dogs. Rosie and Maggie bark at all visitors — even if they’ve know them for years or the two-legged types leave the room for 30 seconds. That said, if they’re asleep at night, they’re about as good at responding to strange sounds as my rugs.

Got dog? How does your canine companion(s) help you as a gun owner? And please, ID the breed and name names.

74 Responses to DeSantis Gunhide Question of the Day: Got Dog?

  1. Have one fourlegged alarm tea cup schnauzer. The other five are theenforcers 2 English Mastiffs and one fat pit bull totop it off have two Dogo Argentinas . Have come home to Awake magazines all over the yard. Found shoes in yard withno owners.

      • Wow, those Argentines are some formidable-looking beasts. After reading about Kangal dogs (bred to be tough enough to take on wolves and win), they hit the top of my “ultimate dog” list, but these guys seem to have a lot of the same qualities.

        • The irish wolfhound is one of the oldest breeds of dogs (been on the island since the 5th or 6th MILLENIA BC). Also deemed the tallest breed of dog by the AKC (they are friggin HUGE). Were used as war-hounds, and for wolf-hunting (hence the name)… the wolf went extinct in irealnd centuries ago, so they are apparently pretty good at their job. They are my go-to dream dog.

  2. I don’t have a dog. My wife and I don’t feel like we have the room or the time in our lives to get the kind of dog we’d like and treat it the way it would deserve to be treated right now. Someday, though. Same with kids, except for the someday part.

    Two cats, though. I was ambivalent about cats until I got some as pets. They’re pretty cool little critters, actually. And we can fIll up the food dish and go away for a long weekend and they are none the worse for the wear when we get back.

    Great video, Robert, thanks.

    • The best thing about cats is that they’re quite and sleep 18 hours a day. Which also makes them completely useless as burglar alarms. But when was the last time you were irritated by a cat meowing a block away? Dogs, all the time.

        • There’s a few quiet breeds out there. I just have a low tolerance for barking dogs.

          Also, if you hire a contractor to work on the exterior of your house – CLEAN THE DAMN DOG SHIT OUT OF YOUR YARD!

  3. I consider my best friend as my brother from another mother. His dog, a black lab named Dozer, is one heck of a bird dog. I love that dog.
    He can track fallen chukars from multiple shooters in the sage brush and cheat grass.
    He will swim out in 40 degree water to bring a duck back, and he will run up and down the deepest canyon in North America with wild enthusiasm that is a joy to watch.

  4. Sadiebeth. Wirehaired Pointing Griffon-a versatile hunting dog. Had dogs my whole life, but this one’s special. Enough energy to hunt, but not too much to cuddle on the couch. Incredible nose, more incredible personality. I was blessed with 3 sons, but no daughters, until the good Lord saw fit to put this fuzzy girl in my life.

  5. Aussie Shepherd, black tricolor male.

    Helps me clean up after a range day – he likes the smell of cordite and gun oil. (And sometimes he “helps” if he thinks we need to be playing catch rather than cleaning guns…)

  6. When I first saw the topic, I read it as “Got Updog?”.

    Owning a dog or cat isn’t something I am prepared to do at this time.

  7. I’ve got 2, an 80lb male, black, boxer-lab mix and a 40lb, female, bull terrier mix. The boxer mix is one hell of a deterrent. The bull terrier is the one I’d be concerned about though. She’s quite a scrapper. That being said both dogs a great family pets. They love my little ones and I would not want to be the poor soul who crosses them when it comes to the well-being of the pack.

  8. Rottweiler/Aussie Cattle mix. We got him as a stray, he was around 3-4 years old. Great guard dog. I have no qualms about him trading his life trying to bring down an intruder, especially one that was hurting me or my wife. Mikey is a good friend of mine, and I love that dog.

    He has this thing with laundry baskets or anything large, round, and plastic (kiddie pools specifically) that he must destroy. Drags, chews, flails. I don’t understand, but it makes an interesting time when it randomly happens.

    • Good for you! Rottweiler mixes (and the purebreds) are loving, loyal and wonderful with kids. All dogs deserve a home and blessed are those who give one to a stray. Our own Angel,a Dobie-weiler (she looks exactly how you’d picture one) simply walked up our driveway years ago and never left. Loves kids. The others are a Chesapeake Bay retriever, a beagle/border collie, boxer mix of indeterminate pedigree and a shi Tzu (who doesn’t count as a whole dog but is a complete idiot).

      • that’s what my daughter wanted until she met my friend’s small blue heeler.
        i think we’re going to get a standard pudln. hunt cut, maybe a mohawk.

    • Oh yes! Corgi, and especially the Pembroke. I’ve had two. The current one is a coin gold with white bib and other points. His name is Laddie. As a rescue from a very abusive background, I consider myself fortunate to have brought him to the point where he is no longer afraid to be patted gently on his face, shoulders and flank. He will tolerate being touched on the hind quarters, but does not like it. We are still working on coming when called, and I had to find another word as well as use a hand signal instead. I am quite sure the abusive owners actually called him to COME and then hit him. It was months before he would tolerate my approach if I had anything in my hand, even so much as a tissue.

      He’s probably always going to be a bit timid and will never be any sort of a watchdog. He was obviously punished hard for making any noise, and has only learned to bark a little after being silent for months after I brought him home. He’s a wonderful companion to an old lady alone, and warms my feet while I sit here if I don’t move. And every once in a while, if my feet are bare, I feel the featherweight touch of his warm tongue on my toes.

      • I get so much angrier about stories of people being cruel to pets than I do about people being horrible to one another.

        Probably means I’m a *blank*-opath of some stripe or other, but whatever. I’d gladly pull the lever on the gallows trapdoor for a man whom I knew for a fact got his kicks hurting animals.

    • Our 9 year old Pembroke Corgi is named Gwenith Anwyn -hey she’s Welsh so she needed a Welsh name. Sable and white with a visible fairy saddle. Corgis are fun dogs. Miss Gwenith herds a basketball around the back yard. I’m not sure what she wants the ball to do but she has great fun pushing it back and forth and barking at it. She is a very vocal little dog and barks at just about everything. She’ll also chase critters in the yard. She went through our screen door to chase an armadillo. Again I don’t know what she would have done with it but armadillo was smart enough to waddle off.

      Gwenith is a great burglar alarm. She has a good loud bark which turns into a growl if there’s something she doesn’t like. We live in a fairly decent neighborhood and seem to get more than our share of salespeople and con men. I’ve been known to meet the more obnoxious ones who can’t read our no soliciting signs with 25 pounds of growling Corgi and a 1911 that’s just visible. Would Gwenith ever take a piece out of anybody? I doubt it – but they don’t know that.

      • I love my corgi, Raegan. She’s smart as a tack, affectionate, and has a big personality stuffed into a little dog. She only barks when she hears someone outside. I don’t expect her to be an aid in physical defense, and nor would I want her to try, but she’s a great alarm system, pet, and friend.

  9. I have a 100lb pit/boxer mix. Looks intimidating to others but is great at home. Doesn’t like anyone or anything outside of people he knows in or around “his space” ( our yard or house). He’s big on cuddling up. And isn’t too aggressive when wrestling with my 5 year old and has a little interest in the baby. But doesn’t mind the pulling of hair or ears.

    • I’ve got what we believe is a pit boxer mix. “Torque”. He’s the best damn family dog I’ve ever met. He came with my wife and she spent lots of time training him but he stays within 50yds of the house at all times, loves to cuddle, and is great with kids. He never so much as growls when the toddlers grab his ears or tongue. He believes that playing fetch is his job- watching him play like that is a pleasure; even if his nose is broken (can’t track a scent to save his life)

      He responds excellently to threats; the perfect level of response when he senses my wife is uneasy about someone at the door he sits at her side (or between her and then) and growls. Scares the crap out of the door to door salesmen without being too threatening.

      Wish we would have bred him so we could have another one just like him one day!

  10. No dog now, but I used to be a dog trainer. Started the gun dogs by setting off firecrackers just before putting down their food bowls. After a while, gunshots meant “dinner!”

    I trained guard dogs for perimeter security, and attack dogs too. I started them off by poison-proofing them so that they couldn’t be drugged or killed by some miscreant with a pound of liver. If you’re going to have dogs put their lives on the line, you owe it to them to train them to be safe.

    Labradors and Chesapeake Bay retrievers were the best gun dogs AFAIK. For protection, I’d choose a German Shepherd Dog, Rottweiler, or one of the three Belgian breeds — Belgian Shepherd, Malinois or Tervuren.

    The GSDs and Rottweilers are hot. Very feisty. The Belgians are different. They’re calculating even when they’re pissed off. I trained one Malinois that would grab an arm (covered by a sleeve, of course) right away, but once she figured out that she wasn’t hurting you, she’d drop off the arm and tear your leg off.

    Clever girl.

    • Rotts are my favorite. I’ve had 3 that helped raise and protect the kids. Each loss was harder than the previous.

      • I loved mine. They are grand animals.

        I once trained a Rottweiler for bite work using a chrome leather sleeve. I felt like my arm was caught in a vise. It wasn’t until I took the sleeve off that I noticed blood streaming down my forearm. That Rottweiler had bitten right through the sleeve and into my arm. I didn’t know they could do that!

        The next day, I tried pounding a tenpenny nail through the same sleeve. It took several hammer blows to do it.

    • The Belgian Malinois is a great dog for sure.

      Personally I’m a huge fan of Plotts. They’re very intelligent, friendly with their people and absolutely fearless. They look goofy but when the metal meets the meat they go to work.

      How exactly did you “poison-proof” the dogs? Low doses of toxins over a long period of time?

        • I would rate teaching a dog not to accept a tasty morsel from an unknown person as virtually impossible.

          However, low doses of toxins over a long period of time do create an immunity and other oddities as well.

          My dad’s friend worked as a chemist for a major electroplating company. Over the course of 20 or so years he basically became immune to a variety of poisons as low dosages built up in his blood. No shit, true story here: The guy got bit by a rattlesnake in North Florida while fishing with my dad. He required a dose of anti-venom to get over it but the snake, which was captured to make sure proper antivenom was administered, literally died a few hours later. (Sounds like a Chuck Norris joke huh?) When the hospital ran tests on the guy and the snake they found that the snake died of heavy metal poisoning and that my dad’s friend had 4x the supposed lethal dose of half a dozen heavy metals in his blood.

          It’s crazy what we can learn to tolerate over time.

    • We adopted a Belgian Shepherd mix. I think it was something like 2 days after getting him, getting ready for bed my mom heard the backdoor knob turn, next thing we both hear is a WOOF (I’m all ready in bed). That was the first time we head him bark, in the morning my mom said she though it was my dad (he worked nights) but
      dad was on his way to work at the time so it was not him.

      Po has been a good dog.

  11. Great Pyrenees guarding the ranch perimeter, a Blue Heeler in the “front yard” and Yorkie in the house.

  12. We don’t have any dogs around anymore. Let’s just say, things got bad one winter, we became trapped in the house, and we had eat it to survive…

    That was a rough 6hrs and I don’t think my neighbor will ever let it go.

  13. Wife and I have a Rottweiler named Bear that we got from the shelter. After several years of rehab from the abuse he suffered from the previous owner, he’s got his confidence back and is an amazing family and guard dog. His bark literally shakes the walls so hopefully most would-be intruders will think twice before entering. Haven’t ever taken him hunting.

  14. I’d have a mutt if I lived in the countryside. I don’t. I do love dogs but don’t need another mouth to feed…

  15. Jack Russel Terrier that is a great squirrel dog. The JR is the only hunting dog I have right now, and she can go all day and want more. I’ve hunted over English Pointers and Setters. The best bird dog I ever hunted over was my fathers Llewellen Setter. She could switch from birds to rabbits and back with no difficulties.

  16. 1) Huckleberry, Plott Hound.
    2) Horus, Plott Hound.
    3) Osiris, German Shepard.

    All rescues. The first two are specifically bread to hunt boar and bear. Unlike the author’s dogs these guys don’t like people they don’t know. If you break into my house the suppressed USP finishes what the dogs don’t. In fact, Huck actually seriously fucked up a guy who broke in. Homeslice lost a good chunk of his leg before heading off to prison.

    • Mine Plott just bellows but I can see how he could mess up someone he didn’t like. His canines are huge, My small redtick i the real killer.

      • Redticks are cool dogs. Never underestimate hound power though. They’re all hunting dogs and if you set them off they go ape.

        Plotts are all loud as hell unless they’re like Huck. Some idiot attempted to mute him and one point before I got him and now he just sounds odd. Kinda like an electric can opener that’s having trouble with the can.

        However, that’s his only deficiency. He can and will seriously hurt people if he chooses to. As referenced above, he’s done it before. Like me he has little patience for nonsense. Screw around and I might use some colorful language but he’ll bite the hell out of you.

  17. Dachshunds. Small, low maintenance, loud bark, big ears to hear everything, barks at the neighbor farting in his basement. Bred to chase and kill badgers, but mine are more expert at sleeping. Erwin Rommel had two…all you need to know.

  18. I have two mountain cur pups. One who is licking my phone a I type. great dogs. Love people but their bark is LOUD

  19. Two guys once pulled into our driveway in a van to case our house. Mom was home alone, and could hear them speaking some slavic language and pointing at various windows. Our jack russel terrier and chocolate lab/pointer mix got angry when they sensed she was afraid. Choco pointer instantly transformed into Cujo behind the front door. Pupils dilated, muscles flexed, scariest growling mom had ever heard. We later found out she’s 1/5th pit bull.

    The would be burglars were discouraged, got back in the van, and left. Mom stealthily got their plates through a window. She waited until they left to call the cops, fearing some kind of shootout would take place in the driveway if they showed up. In retrospect she knows that was a really dumb decision. The slavic guys were caught breaking into another house a month later.

    All the home defense guns in the world mean nothing if nobody present knows how they work. My 870 was ready to rock, but I was not home. Glad my dogs saved the day.

      • Dumb to wait to dial 911 until after the creeps left. I nearly facepalmed when I found out. She has always associated sketchy slavic men with organized/heavily armed crime rings. My younger sister was also home when this near-burglary happened. Mom thought if the cops pulled in, shots would have been fired, and that a stray round would have killed my sister. A bit far-fetched, but totally valid concern. She lived in New York and Boston in the 70’s, when shootouts with/among criminals were pretty common.

  20. English Coonhound aka Redtick can hunt if I hunted coons
    Plott Hound, a Coonhound that hunts bear, wild boar, mountain lion, coyote. Mine is a failed hunting dog but still can track.

    • The Plott’s cold tracking abilities are second to none. They’re really amazing dogs.

      If you think your dog is “failed” take it to a zoo and let him/her look at the bear exhibit…. heh. You’re in for a shock right there.

  21. between dogs right now. buried one belgian shep and six german sheps. none of them could hunt.
    my brother raises springer spaniels (sweethearts) and chessie labs (pretty gruff, guard the boat and guns). champions all.
    the giant schnauzer he had was insane, but a shutzhund champion.

  22. Black Labrador Retriever. Dolly. AKA ‘Baby Girl,” “You a Mess,” and occasionally “PITA.” Would run into a burning barn to retrieve. Does not allow any two or four legged critter to step onto our property without expressing disapproval. (The chipmunks have her baffled. They won’t leave the property like the rabbits, squirrels, and cats do when challenged). My duck hunting days are behind me so she isn’t part of that. I firmly believe that on the eighth day God invented black labs.

  23. Purebred Boxer, large for his breed at 85 pounds, and he looks skinny! His best friend is our other dog, a Corgi mix rescue. The two of them do their jobs well during the day, though my Corgi rarely leaves his sleeping area at night. Thankfully my Boxer is vigilant. Nothing gets close to the house without a bark or growl of some sort. Pizza delivery guys hate me as my Boxer scare’s the living daylights out of them.

    It is my personal view that anyone concerned with home invasions needs to have a dog and a gun. A dog will trump just about any alarm system and regardless of size a dog will be an instant deterrent and distraction to anyone entering your house. Most importantly while your dogs are laying down the law you will have more time to wake up, if dead asleep, and fumble around with your safe, if you have kids in the house, as you retrieve your firearm.

    As the saying goes, seconds count…. Having a dog provides you and your family with a few extra when it matters.

    On a side note, having dogs in the house with kids has the added benefit of teaching the kiddos compassion, empathy and responsibility. Traits that are seemingly rare these days…

  24. A 5 lb’s chihuahua who is the alarm. A 90 lbs GSD who would roll over and look for treats if anyone was murdering me but would devour anyone hurting my daughter. I think his priorities are well placed.

  25. We are on our third greyhound. We have no problems with rabbits and small rodents, around the house. Ha-ha. They don’t jump, bark, lick or take offense when our granddaughter uses them for a pillow. They can sense when something is amiss and will growl and bark. Our second one would bark and growl at my son’s friend before he would open the door, but would ignore all other friends! A dog is an unknown quantity for anyone breaking into a house, so make it obvious that you have a dog to improve the chances that the bad guys will go elsewhere.

  26. We have a female pitbull that weighs about 55 pounds. She is very friendly and happy-go-lucky. When people approach or knock on our door, she barks happily while dancing and wagging her tail at 1,000 mph. Her joyful greeting is so exuberant that we have to hold her back initially to prevent her from knocking people over in her rush to rub against people and receive lots of petting. Along the same lines, she is happy to see other dogs and always wants to play.

    And then there is her “no nonsense” side. I was walking her on a leash recently when a neighbor’s doberman pincer busted through their invisible fence and came out barking and growling. The doberman suppressed its barking/growling for about 1 second to get a couple good sniffs and then proceeded to bark in preparation to bite. My dog was more-or-less ambivalent until the doberman indicated attack … at which point my dog instantly switched to full-on kill mode and started to lay into the doberman. Before I could attempt to break them up, the doberman owner called off the doberman which (to my surprise) immediately returned home. Less than 30 seconds later, my dog greeted another neighbor’s 90 pound Saint Bernard “puppy” and was instantly in full-on play mode running around the yard playing with the “puppy”.

    I have no idea what she would do with a human attacker. I have a hunch that she would wait for our cue since she is part of our “pack” and we are the pack leaders. If we indicate “game on”, I suspect she would jump into the fray with us. So, I don’t know if she would be a good guard dog. She is a good alarm dog. And, unfortunately, a potential sacrificial distraction to buy us more time if a two or four legged attacker comes calling.

  27. We just have the one dog. It’s a Shih Tzu and Poodle mix. We call it a Shihtzpoo, and it’s really only good for that.

  28. I’ve got a pure bred Weimeraner named Layla, and a field lab rescue dog named Charlotte. My daughter picked out Char, who was found in a desert near Joshua Tree and likely abused by construction workers. There’s a special evil in this world that people would abuse puppies.

    I chose a black lab / Austrian shepherd pup from a no-kill shelter. The pup got parvovirus and we weren’t able to save her. Terrible, expensive experience.

    The next dog I “rescued” was a pure bred Weimaramer from a loving home. The poor dog was the star of the litter and snuggled with different family members every night and slept in their beds. Layla has known very little hardship in her life and I plan on keeping it that way.

    Both dogs are aware of our alarm beeps and have developed a handy search feature. Unfortunately the current feature does not have an “off” switch and there is a lot of barking at rats, rabbits and squirrels. Occasionally there will also be some shrapnel from the aforementioned critters distributed throughout the yard.

  29. We have owned and loved Golden Retrievers for years. One day went to local shelter to donate some towels/blankets.
    While waiting a volunteer there was taking a GSD out to for exercise, he reminded me of wolf in Dances with Wolves.
    Thought to myself don’t need another dog especially one not a Golden, too nice to become compost . When it gets cold if the dead bolt is not locked the door will open a crack, it did one day. Heard next door neighbor calling my name. Went downstairs, front door wide open with the GDS sniffing front tires and our big male Golden “guarding” porch from neighbor coming any closer.
    You don’t know which dog is going to be protective, until they demonstrate it .

  30. I am currently owned by a bullmastiff named “Cricket” , she is a excellent watchdog, very protective of her people.

  31. Love reading these TTAG dog stories!
    I completely agree that few things equal the joy expressed in every fiber of a dog joyously doing something he loves. For my current ‘old man’, a 14 year old, now nearly deaf spaniel mix, that was once running agility courses.
    Tucker has been a constant, unfailing source of joy and affection. Should danger arise, I think his first reaction would be to look to me to solve the problem – and protect HIM. And I would attempt to do exactly that. But I simultaneously understand that, should things not go my way, he would sacrifice his life for mine without hesitation.
    We recently lost our family Chow. Wonderful dog who lived life as an aloof companion who sought and accepted affection on HIS terms and when HE chose. I was honored he allowed me to live with him.
    And then there’s our overweight long-hair chihuahua mix. He’ll hide from any sort of danger, but not until he’s expressed his fierceness and displeasure with raucous barking. THEN he’ll go hide.

  32. 95 lb Olde English Bulldogge, named Gomer. Laziest dog you’ll ever meet. (I think my office couch has a Gomer shaped divot in it at this point.) Though when it’s go time… It’s like the boy is either on or off. When he’s off, look no further than the nearest couch or sunny spot. When he’s on… You can hear him halfway down the block.

  33. Got an 8 month-old female Chocolate Lab from the local shelter. Afraid of water and loud noises but otherwise she’s a sweetheart…and a chick magnet when I walk her in the park.

    The airspace above the property is HERS and HERS ONLY.

  34. WGS. 7 months old and 60 lbs. He’s a work in progress and a joy to behold. Just woke my wife and me up to check a noise at the door. You’ve seen those warning signs “beware of dog” and “never mind the dog beware of master”? I’m going to get one that says “dog…master; either way you’re screwed”.

  35. Amos Moses he’s a rescue dog half jack Russell half schnauzer I think he is smarter then me sometimes. Actually I know he is and I believe he’d give his life for me and my fiancé and I would do the same.

  36. Do we have a dog? Ha. Haha. Bwahahaha!

    We have six. Three GSDs, two border collies, and the Undead Shelter Dog, who purports to be some kind of Lab or shepherd mix, but is now at least 15 years old, probably more like 16.

  37. Got dog? Yes.
    How does your canine companion(s) help you as a gun owner? Alarm system.
    And please, ID the breed and name names.
    That might be rather difficult as they are all mutt shelter dogs.
    Collie-Shepherd.
    Shetland Foxhound.
    Labrador Tree Walker.
    I did have a Collie Malamute but he died of cancer.

  38. We had a pack of Pugs (three) and a Chihuahua who thought he was a Pug, for nearly two decades. The Chihuahua was the one you had to watch, though. He could hear a mouse pass gas two houses away, and didn’t intimidate…ever.

    Now, we are down to one 15 year old Pug female, deaf as a post, with arthritis. Our “watchdog” is a 6 month old, snow white Pomeranian named Frank. Unlike many (most?) toy breed dogs, he doesn’t bark without very good reason to. If he feels the need to protect his house or his bipeds, though, he brings all 4 pounds, 11 ounces of fury to bear. He’s one of the smartest dogs I’ve ever seen, and I was a GSD owner/trainer for a long time. As you’d expect, he loves to play, and he is a pro at playing the “cute” card & cuddling, but if he thinks there is some threatening going on, he’s not very easily intimidated, lightning fast & he’ll bite you three times in four different places before the first bite registers in your brain.

    I’ve heard more than once that B&E artists dislike very small dogs as much or more than big ones; they can make a ton of noise, even a very small dog can do damage with a bite, they tend to bite repeatedly, very quickly, and they can be really tough to catch. I’d agree with much of that. They don’t have anywhere near the “Fear Factor” of a GSD, Rottie or pit bull, but they could certainly cause you to have a bad day. Carpet Sharks indeed!

  39. Tora, beloved Dobie, RIP.
    Twice (that I know of) kept bad guys from entering the house.
    One had cut a screen on back bedroom window.
    He did not enter, but OMG I wish Tora hadn’t heard him until he was 1/2 way in the window. Hehehe.
    Second BG was watching the house. He the tried to enter the back door right after I left for work. He left abruptly and my girlfriend chose not to release Tora out the door. Dammmmmmn. I woulda.
    Best one was the time I was walking him off leash around 11pm.
    (He was very well trained.) He stopped at my side and went into point aimed at the R/R track bank covered w tall weeds behind my house. It was the most guttural growl I had ever heard and even in the dark I could tell he was beyond focused on something bad. I called out to any imagined trespasser. No response.
    He started really gearing up and doing the s l o w step walk fwd.
    I gave him the “Go!” and he shot like a laser into those weeds.
    Two half naked teenagers went screaming and running down the tracks!!
    As soon as he flushed ’em he started rabbit hopping all over the weeds looking for more play, then came back to me on call.
    Great dog, great breed.
    Now, Buster the Wunder Schnauzer protects the family and homestead.
    30lbs of badger killing canine rage waiting to happen. LoL
    Do Not Mess w my daughter; she is the chosen one he would give his life for.

  40. Two German Shepherds (Jaing and Mereel) and two Aussie Shepherds (Atin and Fi).

    The larger shepherds are companions to my boys and they have one or both with them when they wander about on their adventures around the property.

    The Aussies are a combination of home and working dog for the property. They also keep me company when I’m wandering about the property eliminating varmints.
