I would look hard at this bloodline they will not be cheap but they are proven tree dogs.bubu said:I'm new to the sq dog world but I am very pleased with my pup I got from Todd Pounds out of his Chipper and Dell dogs. Go back over to the Mdwfp site and look at shiloh's. Or Aritt Davis post . Shiloh owns Chipper and Aritt two dogs are out of Chipper and in my opinion they are as good as they come! I've killed 53 with my pup this year, that may not be very many to some but for me and my 13 month old pup that's good enough for us . Good luck
My buddy has a Kirkland pup for sale right now. 10 months old, $350LMF said:if you decide on a cur you can't beat the three guys already mentioned. there is also a guy down around batesville i understand has some good curs. you didn't say weather you want a pup, started or finished dog. all i can say is bloodline, bloodline, bloodline and these guys here in ms have some of the best in the country. now, if you decide you might want a feist i would suggest in a heartbeat to contact ken kirkland in abbeville ala., he is all about good dogs and bloodlines. as you probably already know squirrel dogs are a blast to hunt with. good luck whatever you decide on. james
I just don't care for the feist so much personally. There are some good ones but there are WAY too many "wanna be" breeders mixing this and that and calling it a feist because it meets a very loose breed standard. There are a few "lines" of feist out there that have been bred and linebred to the point that you can have a good idea of what you are getting but not many. Even then many "customers" of that line don't adhere to the same breeding philosophy as the "originator" of that line. I know I will catch some heat for my opinion but it won't change my opinion. I've only been at this for about 10 years now and I don't know everything but I've owned some of all of 'em and bought a BUNCH of lessons!!! I don't know Mr. Kirkland or his dogs personally. So I can't speak on them. Its all in what you want. Everyone has differences and preferences. I'm glad we aren't all alike! I have found what works for me. It might not suit you at all. Go hunt with many differnt lines and breeds. You might wanna hunt a Basenji for all I know??j.garner said:Aritt, is the kirkland pup not a good bred dog? just asking cause I don't know. Would I be better off getting a started dog, and then find a pup later, your opinion please.
