Living on 1.5 ac with pecan & hackberry trees have good many squirrels running around. Herc has spent untold hrs stalking the fleet footed critters. This morn he and I was in the study looking out over front yard. Low and behold one of the squirrels went up a small live oak tree. Herc went directly to front door. I opened the door and he shot off like a rocket. Treed the squirrel. As I was walking up to the tree, the squirrel jumped out. Definitely the wrong move on his part. Herc pinned him to ground and finished him off. He was quite possessive of the squirrel at first, but finally let me pick the squirrel up. Herc will have fresh meat in his evening meal.

My dog has figured out that if he launches his body at our back fence when a squirrel is running across, it'll sometimes dislodge their footing and they'll fall into the yard.

He gets a few a year that way. I typically only find their tails (yes, he actually eats the head).

My FIL's Dalmation got ahold of a possum once. It didn't end well for the possum.

When we moved into the city, my Rott figured that trick out for cats. That dog hated cats...

My Boston Terrier is the squirrel hating-ist dog their is. He's yet to get one though.

From sun up to sun down, that dog is on squirrel patrol.

He doesn't cut the neighbor's cat any slack, either. He trees that thing on a regular basis.

You go Herc. Those tree rats can wipe out a peach orchard quicker than you can grab your gun...I feel the same about them as SniperRAB feels about raccoons. rifle

Love a dog that still has those instincts. Tree rats can be heck on a corn feeder too.
