Some photos of my Jagdterriers at work with me in Texas. And a few here in Colorado.

This hog was flushed and bayed up during the middle of the day by Kubi.

Mr. Nitro Express blood trailed this Nitro Express shot hog. Granted it was a short blood trail but he enjoyed the work!

Mickey and Belle treed up this camp raiding coon for my girl.

This deer was shot four days prior to me getting the call to come look for it. Nitro the Express blood trailing dog took the trail from the spot it was hit and followed it over a mile to a find. The deer had been shot in the rear leg and was still alive when Nitro found it. the deer was way back up in an thick oak mott and would have never been found if it wasn't for Mr. super nose the blood trailer.

Flushed and run to me from a long way off. I killed him as he ran by at about 50 yards with a quick left and a right from the trusty old double gun. Hey it's overkill at it's finest but it's also great practice for Africa. ;)

Kubi trailed, flushed and bayed up this hog in a driving Texas thunder storm.

Mr. Kubi blood trailed this hog for several hundred yards in a thick wet swamp for my brother. We found him dead, he had taken a .416 through the vitals he just didn't know the game was over for bit.

Nitro on one of his first blood trailing jobs as a 6 month old puppy.

Kubi double bayed and held these hogs for me to make a double spear kill. Kubi was one fine example of the hunting breed known as the Jagdterrier. He died in 2005 after taking a fatal snake bite in the neck.

On this one Kubi flushed this hog. The hunter wounded it and Kubi blood trailed it for about a mile caught and held it until we got there to finish it off. He got banged up pretty bad on this one with lots of bites and cuts to his neck and body.

Kubi caught this little boar whom we named Mr. McSnorter. My little girl doesn't look to sure about whats going down here as that little porker was screaming bloody murder. I think the look on her face was priceless!!

He went to live at a buddies house down in Texas and became super tame. He came to his name and liked to eat treats from your hand. The only issue with him is that he would gets a bit rambunctious when he saw somebody he knew and would cut the dickens out of you with his tusks when he came up and started to rub on you and butt you with his nose. It's just how hogs say hi but we humans don't have thick enough skin for the greeting process of a wild boar. Unfortunately he died of natural causes this year.

BTW, our cattle dog, Jake an Austrailian Shepherd died from a rattler bite to the neck while we were out of town. He lived to be 12 years young and produced 3 seperate litters. I do feel your loss we raised him from a pup.

Dang, the western diamond backs in your part of the country are hard on dogs!

Very VERY impressive dog you had there.

First I have ever heard of a Jagdterrier, I owned several hog hunting and tracking Catahoula's (Leapard Curr's), Blue Lacey's (a VERY fine hog dog, State dog of Texas too!) and Rhodesian Ridgeback's (African Lionhounds). Gave up hunting with dogs when my brothers two Lab's where stolen from our pens, along with his beagle, they killed the ridgeback bitch I had over there and wounded my Catahoula so bad I had to have him put down. I gave the rest of my hounds and currs away. Would have bothered me much less if they had they stolen all my guns and money instead. Easy to make money and buy some new guns, hard to replace a great dog.

Ike,

That story makes mad!! What kind of feral human would do that!?!:fire:

Question,

Did you ever hunt your RR? I've heard mixed reviews on how they hunt now days?

I've worked with curr dogs hounds and catahoulas. I sure do enjoy currs we used them for bear and lion and they did a great job.

My ridgebacks where great bay hounds! Had one crossed with a Black Mouth cur and got a few great catch dogs out of her. The best one I had though was about 1/4 pit 3/4 ridgeback I bought from a friend, All of mine were very fearless and exceptional enough to help work cattle alongside Blue Heelers without attempting to bay them. I have owned 10 of them over the years, not includeing pups whelped and sold off. We treed a cougar with 2 of them one night off of Cypress Creek, which runs through Houston not far from Intercontinental Airport. Friend shot him down with a bow. My original bitch and stud where aquired from a man in Fred, Texas and he said his family had been breeding and hunting hogs with them for almost 25 years, would be closer to 40 years now if they continued to do so. He gave a money back guarantee that they would be the best bay hounds you could find.

Most people I have seen who complain about RR hounds are too harsh with them, they need positive and rewarding training, a shock collar, newspaper, or any strong discipline will ruin them quickly, as will pulling them roughly off of a bayed critter, simply hook up thier collar to your leads and pull them away firmly or just tie them up, any rough handleing and hitting and I wish you good luck getting them to bay again.

Your pics have my future wife and 9YO stepdaughter interested in a jagedterrier as our next pet, and me interested in one as a tracker. They have 2 dachshunds ATM, but they won't let me train them to hunt rabbits or squirrels! They said sure on the jagedterrier! Know of any good kennels to inquire into? Distance to get it is not a problem, and my price limit isn't low. Have to wait till we actually get married and move in together but the kid was promised a new puppy....I mind as well take advantage of it.

And no, I am not sure what kind of monster steals your family members and shoots the others , but it made me feel better when we found shredded blue jean material in the pens. We moved the pen up to my younger brothers house in town, and someone came and stole my 8 month old golden retriever puppy (She probably let down the tail gate for them).

My next dog will be kept inside for the most part, and only let out to run when we are outside too , which is pretty much all day when we are home. How would a Jagedterrier be able to handle that lifestyle?

Ike,

Here is a good Jagd kennel.

http://knitehunt.homestead.com/

As far as keeping them inside most of the time. Well I've got one who likes to be a lap dog when she's not hunting but here is the deal. These dogs are extremely high energy critters and are about a prey intensive as it gets. If they get bored they'll find themselves an activity. Could be tearing your cat in half or maybe kicking the living crud out of your dachshunds then eating them with some schnitzel sauce.

Or you could get one that is a lover and makes a good house pet as well as a heck of a hunting dog. I've had them all over the years. Many make fine house dogs but be warned not all of them do. And if you get a rowdy one you could be in for some trouble. I've never seen one that doesn't love his master and his kids and that wouldn't die for his family if called for. But I have had one that was hell bent on mauling the UPS man. That was Kubi.

Terriers are different than any dog I've ever worked with. Once they get pissed off they simply stop feeling pain. They can also be a frustrating to work with at first if they don't have a solid basic obedience training. Terriers are hard headed as compared to hounds. But you've worked with pits so you know all this already. They act a lot like a small pit bull. They aren't afraid of anything and they have a serious on off switch. When they're on they're on full throttle and when they're not on they make great buddies.

I love the breed you just have to know that they like any serious hunting breed can be a handful at times.

H&H:

Great pics of some great-looking dogs.

A couple years back some person(s) slung acid on my neighbors two labradors, the sort of dogs who would be your friend for life if you but petted them and scratched them behind the ears.

There are some truly awful people out there. If they do that to an animal as loving as those two dogs, just think what horrors they'd do to a person.

H&H,
Here is a photo of a 240# boar taken while hunting @ Three Rivers WMA in Louisiana with Mr. Buddy Goatcher (Goatcher Wildlife Solutions) back in February of this year. It was my first time hunting with Jadg's and was quite an experience. This hog had been held bayed for a long time, before we could get to it, by two young pups. When we arrived with a third jag, father of the two, he thought he was a catch dog, and went right in and tried to catch the hog. Things went south quickly from there and the hog tore up those dogs pretty bad. Mr. Buddy and i were able to kill it as it ran past us breaking out from the bay. All three dogs had to be taken to a vet to be patched up, one had a punctured lung. They all lived to hunt again.

Are you familiar with the jadg terrier forum below? Several "regulars" there were on this particular hunt, one guy came all the way from Canada.

Question about the Jadg terriers. How far are they from the Jack Russel breed? I have owned many Jacks and have found them to be the best dern recovery/blood trailers in the business. Very smart and as you said energetic as can be. 9 pound dogs with 90 pounds of attitude! Just wondering how close the Jadg breed is to them and may be interested in getting one for recovery and possibly some pig flushing later when I can move out of this forsaken bassackwards state and get somewhere where I can hunt again!

Jadg's are a mix of a fox terrier and a black and tan hunting terrier. They weigh about 22 lbs average. They seem to be a bit less wired than JRT but have many of the same traits. When put in trailing contests with hounds they generally do very well.

Keano,

Yup I've been there and done that with Jadg's several times. Good thing my wife is a vet it cuts down on the rebuild costs!;)

I hadn't seen that site but I'll go check it out! Thanks.
