Shepherd and Bird Dog Cross
Shepherd and Bird Dog Cross-How would a cross of shepherd and bird dog be for hunting coons, skunks and other furbearers?
With the proper training, such a dog might be good, but there is no certainty. I would not advise such a cross unless you are prepared to take chances on the results. If you will cross the shepherd with a good foxhound, you may be more certain of satisfactory results.
Don’t cross shepherd and bird dogs. They are worthless. If you have a fancy for hunting dogs of mixed breeds, put up a good foxhound bitch with a red Irish setter. They make the finest kind of “varmint dogs.”
