    Hmm, as I said above I've known a couple who I wouldn't go near, but that was because of the way they were raised and treated by the owner. Probably wouldn't have gone near that blokes dogs even if they were chihuahuas.

    Roly is a Jack Russell, bred for flushing rabbits out of their burrows and kill any babies underneath. Another breed is above waiting to catch what ever comes out.
    Just saying...

    In response to the pig hunting, I don't really have any advice.
    There used to be a member that owned a Bull Arab that lived with her young kids, but she never actually hunted.
    Sorry, that wasn't much help, but good on you for rescuing the poochy

    Please do not put such a label on a great line of dogs like this.
    You have also missed the point that you cannot shoot what you cannot see, to fire bullets after a pig retreating into scrub or swamp and risk wounding without a direct kill is to possibly leave an animal to die in agony which may take days or longer if it makes it to cover before dropping, to use dogs is a rough but fast way to get the pig either held by lugging or driven to where it can safely be shot.
    Far kinder in the long run.

    We have also reared pet wild piglets, the most charming, funny and intelligent things going, so I do not like to see pigs hurt for any longer that is strictly needed to cull them either, but always I remember my stepfather telling of the boar he saw dragging a half born lamb from it's mothers uterus, like it or lump it pigdogs are a necessity


    Well guess what.... i come from a farming family, who i have nothing but hate & disrespect for.... i've seen 1st hand just what cruel barbaric deeds some pigging dogs can do to another animal & i personally would never put my kids or my pets near them that's for sure... IMO PTS is the only option for such dogs that are trained to be killing machines.

    Do pig dogs kill their quarry? I've never gone pigging or got into it so don't know for sure whether they actually kill the pig or not.

    AF, I can understand where you may be coming from and how you feel. I also comprehend that you ARE entitled to your opinion as is everybody, but wouldn't that wipe a lot of different dogs off the face of the earth?

    GSD's perform duties far above and beyond, and some of them go out there and indeed do lay their life on the line every day and night, rather than see their handler die. They too like pigging dogs are highly trained and do so only upon order. I would hate to see those dogs put to sleep for being what they are. A lot more cops would take the risk of losing their lives whilst working to make our society safer.
    Hope you understand where I'm coming from...

    DA.. yes i understand where you coming from & i'm sure you will agree that there is a big difference between guard dogs / trained police dogs, defense force dogs & "specifically trained to kill" pigging dogs regardless what breed they are ( pigging dogs only are what i class as "killing machine dogs" )

    No i don't think that any breed of dog should be PTS if it acts in self defense or is defending their master's / owner's life etc or is doing their guard duties such as police dogs or defense force dogs etc.

    Honestly mate, I don't understand the difference TBH. If anything, to me - to take a human life (or maim/harm a human in any way) is probably worse than taking/maiming/harming another animal's life in my eyes.

    They are all trained to perform a task, I think it's just that some ppl agree or disagree depending on the task, I guess.

    Okies... i give up trying to explain myself in a nice polite manner..i am trying hard though.

    Here it is plain & simple... i don't like pigging dogs, i don't trusted them & do feel sorry for any breed of dog that is used for mans blood thirsty barbaric enjoyments & i think they should be PTS if they kill any animal.

    & yes if any of my SBT's ever killed another dog, other animals live stock for fun or, then i wouldn't hesitate to have my dog PTS... I know Floyd has a natural built in prey drive in him & he has killed 1 mouse that i know of, ( not that i approve of him killing rodents either ) but if he ever killed other animals for fun then i sure would have him PTS I would never have any of my SBT's PTS if they killed out of self defense or they were protecting my family or I.

    But AF, Floyds heritage is as a bull baiting dog! Certainly one of the most barbaric, inhumane, gambling 'sports' out there!

    Turn this around AF, if someone was generalising your beloved breed like you are doing to them, you would be outraged.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.
