I just got a new squirrel dog 3 weeks ago. She is half blackmouth cur an half mountain cur. She is a year old and the people who had before me didnt hunt her at all, however I know where she came from and the guy raises some fine squirrel dogs. First time in the woods she was treeing. I am so pleased with her, oh and she was free. Eventually I would like to get some pups off her but im gonna wait for right now. I killed 19 with her the first 2 weeks I had her and thats just little short trips around the house. What I plan on doing is breeding her (Eventually) to another good squirrel dog and keep a pup for myself and let the other pups go for free or for cheap cheap. I know alot of people would love a squirrel dog and dont wanna pay "hundreds" of dollars for one.. Anyways just thought I would share that..
