    ENGLISH BULL TERRIER

    Some would say mini.....however......my standards weigh between 40-45 pounds and I like them that way. I keep mine lean and in shape, not round and chubby.

    I use my Bull Terriers as catch dogs on hogs. I keep mine in shape though. No complaints here. Not many folks here in the states use them for hunting.

    Hunting With English Bull Terriers?

    We use a few as catch dogs when we hog hunt. The ones we have have never let us down.

    Greyhound Or Stag X Catahoula

    Hello all. May be a long shot, but I was wondering if anyone here has done/owned a Greyhound or Stag x Catahoula? If so, I'd love to see pics. I have a 3 week old pup right now off of my Catahoula bred to our slick coated Stag that is going to be a hog dog hopefully. I was just speculating how he might turn out to look when he's mature. Thanks.

    Training Hog Dogs

    All of those '"Dogos" (or bulldogs or whatever they were) In the first video should have been given an immediate dirt nap. Tucking tail and running from the hog, to then go to the gate to beg to be let out? Disgusting. Now that Patterdale, he was somethin' else.

    Jagd terrier

    Got ya. Yeah she is stocky and shorter. He is built almost comparable to a mini bulldog, buy he still has the nice thick bone for as leggy as he is. This build is actually better over here where we have so much swamp/marsh land that they have to maneuver. I really enjoy hunting behind these dogs. They're pretty amazing, and versatile.

    Another Jagd

    Thanks everyone. Now that I've got to hunt behind my husband's pair, I am very much looking forward to having one of my own. Great little dogs they are.

    Patterdale

    Of course without running bloodwork to check his phenobarb levels I couldn't say for sure, but it sounds like he had a seizure and could be epileptic. We have an older Catahoula hog dog here, that ONLY has episodes when she's out working. Never happens while sitting up in her pen. "Stress" induced we believe. By stress I mean elevated blood pressure as when working..... If it's not reoccurring, and/or you don't plan on working him anymore, meds wouldn't be nessecary, but if you did plan on continuing to work him, he would need to be on daily oral meds. Over here we use Phenobarbitol dosed appropriately.

    @jawn: What (if any) is the most consistant size/weight in your dogs that you keep/breed? My husband has two, and his female is the same size as his lead Patterdale, but his male is in the thirty pound range EASY. Never seen one this big.....

    Another Jagd

    My ol' man just brought this guy home this weekend to add to his pack. I know these guys vary in size but he is BIG, he's in the 30 lb range easy, his little female Jagd is about half his size. Been through training and he's a finished blood trail dog, and he's been on small game as well as hogs. I don't know his exact lines but I'm told he was imported. We will be using him on hogs. We're letting him adjust to the new environment and we'll be taking him out soon. Looking forward to hunting behind him. I sure admire these little dogs.

    Very sorry for your loss. Glad they went out doing what they loved. Your EBT looks great by the way.

    Is PLL a frequent occurance in Jagds? I've never heard of it occurring in Jagds until now. I know in EBT's it is, specifically in the Minis for some reason. I have a older rescue Mini EBT here and I had to have both of his eyes removed due to PLL. Such a shame.

    Another English Bull Terrier In My Pack

    Thank you! Yes, if he takes to catching like I have a good feeling he will.....he will take the spot of my lead CD. I will try and get pics for sure. A bit difficult at times for us because my husband and I tend to run alone most often, and we always have our hands full with dogs or a hog. This season I am going to put extra effort in getting a few photos though for sure. is the ebt blood in the states outcrossed with other types of bull blood like pit etc mybe that's why you lot get them working easier? Not that I am aware of. Both of my males, as well as my husband's mini bitch are actually AKC registered, and the two who's pedigrees I have in hand (waiting on my new males to come in the mail) are bred on a lot of show titled dogs. Even back when I was a vet tech over the years, any clients I had that had EBT's would comment on their high prey drives, etc. I think that even though the outer shells of this breed has changed drastically over the years, their inner drive still remains in a lot of these dogs, it's just that the majority (almost all) wind up in pet homes, where they are obese couch dogs, and not allowed to engage in any driven type activities. Since these dogs here were young, they've been kept fit, and allowed to hunt/take game. They took to it like a fish in water. This newest male....he was actually raised up in an apartment by his first owner...his second owner that had him for a few months before sending him to me kept him outdoors, and let him be more of a dog if you will. His drive is through the roof. He got that huge scar on his side by chasing a cat underneath a mobile home with tin siding. Tore his side wide open, and from what I was told, it didn't hinder him a bit from acquiring his target. He's still a young dog at 16mths old.

    Facebook

    I do not have a Facebook account. People look at me like I'm nuts when I tell them I don't. I understand that Facebook can indeed be a networking tool, but, most (not all) get so carried away with posting every aspect of their personal lives on it it's nauseating. I've seen countless people get in trouble with the law due to Facebook and what they're posting up on it, as well as people who posted SO MUCH detail about their every friggin move, that they're yard of dogs was poisoned while they were out one day. Hell they couldn't have made it any easier considering! I have had some good dog folks send me invites to private groups on there, which has had me considering creating an account, but if I do....you better believe that not a lick of my personal info will be posted on there. I can't believe they hype over Facebook. It's like an epidemic, from pre teens to senior citizens that barely know how to operate a computer! People are so dense to not see the bigger picture here. If I want to know what someone's doing that bad, family or not, I'll give them a call, or send them a text message.
