Great looking dog..they will talk to to you. Is he a runner?
Buddy he is like a sled dog, if he sees a squirrel or a rabbit hang on because he will drag you for a while.
Crazy thing about him he was a flea invested 49 lb rescue dog that lived in 6 or 7 places before we adopted him.
He was house broken and would sit when asked, somebody abused him because he was cowed when we got him. After about 3 months he seemed to realize he was part of the family.
