Our Dogs
Maggie aka "Mamma Dog" is Patch's soul mate and Tank's mother.  She is a pure breed American Bull Dog.  Maggie can scrap with the nastiest pigs in the land.  She is fierce and compliments Patch or tank on any pig.  Maggie is a long way from retiring, but has to take time outs to raise pups every now and then. t then.                                                                             
   Tank aka well...just Tank, enough said!  Tank is a two year old pure breed American Bull Dog.  His parents are Patch and Maggie.  What a beast!  Tank weighs 100 lbs, a full 20 lbs more than Patch and 30-40 lbs more than Maggie.  Tank has taken the lead, over from his old man Patch, on catching pigs!  Both Patch and Tank will hunt independently of the bay dogs, if the bay dogs are not producing.

Patch aka "Patchman" is a pure breed American Bull Dog.  Patch is the senior catch dog in our group.  He is 6 years old, and has literally caught hundreds of pigs.  The biggest pig I have seen him catch without assistance weighed approximately 275 lbs!  Patch will probably be retired at the end of the 2008 season, left to guard the castle, and provide stud services...of course! \

Judy aka "Lil Jude".  Lil Jude is a 9 yr old pure breed Walker Hound.  I can't say enough about this dog and her hunting skills.  I have seen her produce pigs when the rest of them were whipped and wore out, "huntin under the mules".  Judy once tracked a pig for 4 miles!  I know because we had to ditch the mules and cross several property lines on foot to find her!  She has one of the best nose's I have seen, but she will pick her head up and hunt with her eyes if the scent is swirling.

Pepper is a pure breed Blackmouth Cur, and is a yr old.  We got Pepper when she was 10 months old, from a kennel (will remain nameless) that was shutting down.  She has not been handled alot and can get a little testy around strangers.  Once she "finds her place" those Blackmouth hunting skills will kick into overdrive.  She will also bring many new hunting dogs to our kennels.                                                                        
Abby aka "Abby Girl"  is also a pure breed Walker Hound, like Lil Jude, only 6 years younger.  Abby is an excellent hunter and has a great nose!  Her and Lil Jude can track any pig, through any country, any time!  Abby has long legs and big lungs, and will not quit, once she smells a big nasty!                                                                           
Buster!  aka "Bad to the bone Buster".  He is a 4 yr old 1/2 Keamer Mountain Cur and 1/2 Black and Tan.  We purchased Buster from some hunting buddies up near Oklahoma for a heck of a price last year (2007).  Buster has been the best money spent on a pig dog in the past 4 years!  Buster is taking over the lead baying duties from Lil Jude, as she will probably retire in the next couple years.  Buster will hunt until you drag him back to the horse trailers!  In the past year he has produced many hogs.  He does not mind catching either.                                                                          
Sugar aka "Brown Sugar" is a one yr old Cattahoula that belongs to a buddy in our hunting group.  She saw her first pig at 10 months old and after about 2 minutes, it was like she had been doing it for years.  Her and her brother Dozer, just need to be trained around the mules and they're good to go!                                                                                
Dozer aka "Bull Dozer" is the one yr old brother to Sugar.  He is also a Cattahoula, with great instincts.  Both Sugar and Dozer have seen 4-5 pigs in the last couple of months, during their training, and took to baying like ducks do to water.  Dozer even tried to catch a couple of times.  He will either master that or quit doing it all together, if he meets the right Mr. Pig!
