STARTED DOGS ARE OUR SPECIALTY. I AM VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT TAKING A PUP & TURNING IT ON TO RUNNING RABBITS. MY DEFINITION OF A STARTED DOG IS NOT WHAT SOME PEOPLE CALL A STARTED DOG. YOU KNOW SOME PEOPLE WILL CALL A DOG STARTED BECAUSE IT RAN A RABBIT 15 YARDS & BARKED 3 TIMES. I WILL NOT EVEN CONSIDER A DOG STARTED UNTIL IT IS HUNTING ON ITS OWN & STAYING IN THE RACE WITH THE OTHER DOGS.
MOST OF THE PUPS I START ARE PUPS I BREED & RAISE OUT OF MY OWN PERSONAL FINISHED DOGS. I DO NOT DO THIS JUST TO SELL SOMETHING BUT RATHER TO PRODUCE THE KIND OF DOG THAT YOU CAN BE PROUD OF BECAUSE IF IT COMES FROM HERE IT WILL HAVE A GREAT FOUNDATION TO BUILD ON & YOU CAN FINISH IT OUT BY PUTTING TRACKS ON IT & HARVESTING SOME RABBITS OVER THEM.
I BELIEVE PRODUCING A DOG YOU CAN BE PROUD OF STARTS WITH A GOOD BREEDING, HAVING THE RIGHT FACILITIES TO TRAIN, INTRODUCING PUPS TO RABBITS, & GOOD RUNNING GROUNDS WITH LOTS OF RABBITS, BUT MOST OF ALL, TIME INVESTED IN THEM AT A VERY EARLY AGE.
WE ARE FORTUNATE TO HAVE ALL OF THE ABOVE. I TAKE GREAT PRIDE IN HAVING YOUNG DOGS THAT HUNT & HANDLE THE RIGHT WAY.
THE GREAT THING ABOUT BUYING A YOUNG DOG IS YOU GET TO WATCH THE DOG PROGRESS TO A FINISHED DOG & YOU GET A LOT MORE YEARS OF USE FOR YOUR MONEY.
I'VE HAD SEVERAL PEOPLE TO TELL ME THAT THE YOUNG DOGS, THEY ARE BUYING FROM HERE, ARE OUTPERFORMING SOME OF THE FINISHED DOGS THEY OWN. IT IS VERY COMMON FOR PEOPLE TO BUY 1-2 STARTED DOGS FROM US & THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW THEY ARE COMING BACK TO BUY MORE.
WHEN PEOPLE SEE THE QUALITY THAT IS THE STANDARD OF OUR STARTED DOGS IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE FOR MOST PEOPLE TO BUY OR RAISE PUPS BECAUSE AFTER YOU ADD UP THE COST OF BUYING A PUP, FEEDING, VACCINATIONS, & TRAINING PEN COST YOU ARE NOT FAR FROM THE COST OF ONE OF OUR STARTED DOGS BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY YOU HAVE THE ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY THAT YOU ARE SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON A RABBIT DOG WITH THE HUNT, LOOKS, MOUTH, & HANDLE THAT YOU LIKE. YOU NORMALLY CAN COME HERE & CHOOSE BETWEEN A FEW DOGS INSTEAD OF BETTING IT ALL ON THE PUP YOU BOUGHT & HAVE WAITED FOR MONTHS HOPING IT TURNS OUT TO BE A GOOD DOG. WHAT IF THE PUP DOESN'T TURN OUT? WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT ALL THAT & SEE WHAT WE HAVE TO OFFER YOU WILL FIND THIS IS THE WAY TO GO!
THAT'S NOT TO SAY THAT NO ONE ELSE HAS PUPS THAT TURN OUT RIGHT BUT IF YOU ARE TIRED OF THE RESULTS YOU ARE GETTING TRY US OUT. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!

Fire Male #5
Sold to Mr Franke from Karnes City, TX on 12/21/15
This male is out of Fire & Scooter & was born on 7/8/15. He was originally bought on the deposit program but the guy backed out on him so he's now for sale. This male is the real deal. He has very good hunt, runs the track very well, has a loud squeal type mouth, runs an upper-medium speed, & handles very well. The most impressive thing is he's doing all of this & is only 5 months old.
I had a race this morning with him, Ted, & Spanky that lasted for over 45 minutes. This dog got a check as well as running the heck out of that rabbit. You'll love this one for sure. I expect him to be 13"-14" when grown. Price is $700 SOLD!!!
Sold to Mr Franke from Karnes City, TX on 12/21/15
Spanky is a tall tricolor male that is not out of my bloodline but he is a very fine dog. He has been neutered so if you're wanting to breed a dog this one is not your dog. Spanky is a long legged dog that should mature at 15". He is 8 months old now. He hunts hard, handles great, & is getting better with each trip to the field. He is crazy about the track when he smells a rabbit & is going to be a fine dog. He will run an upper-medium speed. Price is $600 (because he's been neutered) SOLD!!!
Cookie Female Sold to Kenneth Bishop from Eastboga, AL on 11/7/15
This female is out of Joe & Cookie & was born on 3/30/15. She has a nice chop mouth & gets excited hen her nose hits a rabbit track. Her mouth has a quiver to it when it's a tough track but rolls to a straight chop when the track is real hot. She handles very well & runs an upper medium speed. The only knock on her that I've seen is she doesn't start hunting real hard until you get the first rabbit up. Her hunt is improving & with more time I believe she will come out of it. The lack of rain in our area really seemed to hamper her progressing as fast as I would have liked her to. We went without rain for about 45 days & the conditions were very tough. Things are much better now & the dogs are able to smell a lot better now. Price is $700. Sold!!!!!
Flame Male Sold to Wade Davenport from Dunnsville, VA on 11/4/15
This male is out of Flame & Scooter & was born on 4/1/15. I originally had a deposit on him but he wasn't going by 6 months old so the person awitched to another dog. This male has a nice loud raspy chop mouth & is very excited when he gets a track under his nose. He runs an upper medium speed, handles great, hunts real good, & is getting better every time I take him out. All he needs is tracks. I see a very bright future ahead of this one. Price is $700 SOLD!!!!!
