    Deer dog pups for sale (heading dog x collie)

    My brothers bitch has recently had a litter of pups. They are strong eye heading dog x collie x huntaway but both parents throw majority heading dog / collie. Iíve known his girl since she was a little pup and always thought she would have made an awesome deer dog. Father is a family friends working dog.

    He is keen for them to go to hunting homes and live a life worth living. His one condition is strictly no pig hunters.

    Location is Huntly, Waikato. $750 ea

    Few people seem to have been put off by the huntaway component. To clarify these pups will be something like 1/9th huntaway and as seen in both parents they are pretty much heading dog/collie. Good deer dogs, cheers.

    I can't see any Huntaway in the pups, just sounds like an excuse to me.
    Mum has a tiny amount showing with the brownish dots above the eyes but no other Huntaway traits I can see.
    Awesome looking pups

    both my collie heading dogs took to pig hunting like a duck to water,they have more than enough brains to not get hurt,its what makes them ideal ,they wont fight pig,they work them into spot then keep them there till boss arrives to shoot the pig or call them off to go home.... smoke would happily go in and hold any pig I asked him to.and never got ripped,too plurry clever for that caper.the other two traits are they like to bring animal back to you,eg head it off and head it back...thus heading dog name....and natural heal eg they bit hocks on cattle so a pigs hocks or better still the big bulgy bits out borisis back end get nipped with glee.ol boris stops quick smartly and backs into bank to protect the family jewels.
    what Im trying to say is not all folks who will allow dogs to help them catch pigs should be tarred with same brush...Im not a fan of packs of holders myself...but have no issues at all with finder bailer who will hold on demand....
    and NO I dont need another dog yet ...
