It seems that there aren't a lot of posts on here about hunting small game with dogs, so I thought I'd take a minute and brag on my little guy. Tippy is a 10 month old rat terrier who trees squirrels, jumps rabbits, and kills vermin. He is a 13 inch tall, 13lb hunting machine! Hunting small game with dogs is my favorite way to hunt! Anyone else have a dog they use on small game?

I was hoping my Jack Russell would be, but outside the yard there is no control hammer

Looks like Tippy is just waiting for that squirrel to make a false move. "Go ahead, make my day again."

Growing up we always had a couple of mountain twists or cuts around. For a while, we even had a small pack of foxhounds. Because of this thread, I just spent an hour looking at first breeders, looks like my labs will be getting a little buddy in the near future.

I'm glad to hear people talking about small game hunting with dogs. It seems like something of a lost art here in Texas. I had a nice hunt with my rat terrier the other day. It just makes me smile when he starts barking treed on a squirrel!

I think small game hunting in general is becoming a lost art in Texas.

machine73, I think you are right. I have nothing against hunting big game, but squirrels and rabbits are where it's at for me!

Same here. It's a shame a part of our heritage is dying off like that.
