  1. Sorry to hear that. Tough break.
  2. Big Oak

    New pup

    I have a Male Treeing Feist very heavy Barger blood. And Drakes Creek Dexter and Odell’s Cool Whip bloodline. Born 10/13/19 Double Springs Alabama 205-269-6214 His Great Grand Sire is Eddie Odell’s Cool Whip and Grand Sire is Drakes Creek Dexter son of Odell’s Cool Whip plus 90-95% Barger Stock so he definitely has the blood in him to be a real squirrel dog.
  3. Your guess is as good as mine but I'm going to guess around 30 pounds of course that's just a guess someone else that knows the bloodline might can give a better answer. But, with his Great Grand Sire being Eddie Odell’s Cool Whip and Grand Sire is Drakes Creek Dexter son of Odell’s Cool Whip plus 90-95% Barger Stock he definitely has the blood in him to be a real squirrel dog.
  4. That's true like my Dad always said what goes around comes around.
  5. Look to the top of the post the pictures are in the post.
  6. Absolutely nothing wrong with the pup except I was led to believe he was Barger Stock Feist top and bottom and he is not. The papers on him and I have a six generation pedigree on him show 80-90% all Barger Stock but when it gets up to the Dexter and the Cool Whip dogs as with the dam and sire there is where it goes to Treeing Feist. I want a male that is totally Barger Stock top and bottom to breed to my female that I have. Yes it was partially my fault for taking him knowing that the pup papers showed Treeing Feist but the guy assured me that it was a mix up at NKC and the papers would be corrected. That being said I like a fool took the word of a man that I didn't know at face value and ends up he flat out lied to me about the papers on the pup. Lesson learned the hard way. I took Mr. Casey Sliman of McEwen Tn. to be a man of his word and he in fact knew he was lying to me all along and I shafted myself by taking a pup that the papers didn't show him to be in fact Barger Stock. So as far as the pup goes he has great blood in him and should make a cracker Jack of a dog he's just not what I'm looking for as for breeding purpose's. And yes I do know that it is up to the breeder that owns the dam to list the breed on dogs but I refuse to lie and say a liter of pups in the future are Barger Stock top and bottom when I know that the Treeing Feist is there. Nothing wrong with the pup as I said he just can't meet my requirements for breeding.

  8. Sounds very good and I got to be trying this dish in the future.
  9. Mr. Oak,

    See that you've got my check and I can now post freely.  I've been lurking here for a few weeks, gathering information on Feist dogs.  You seem to be one of the most active fellows on this forum--so I thought I would touch base with you about a few questions I have.

    I'm in Pennsylvania, the N. West corner, and have been walking the woods with my current dog, a Feist looking beagle mix that's about 10 years old.  She's a good hunter, HATES squirrels, and will climb a tree to get at them!  But she got gun shy after being stuck at a fireworks display one July fourth, a year back.

    I have met a good guy up here who runs a a couple of Curs for squirrel, and we hunted a while and my Molly fell in with those Curs like she belonged.  I'm thinking if I can get her out with another dog that was treeing with her, and the excitement was high--we could knock one or two out for her, and she could remember that the gun is her friend.

    So I'm looking to add another dog to the household.

    I'm thinking a Feist, because I'm told they work closer than Curs and stay quiet until they're on to a squirrel.  I'm also told that they make good companion dogs--which is very important to me.

    Coupla questions for you:

    1.) Basic Feist obedience.  Because of my work schedule, I often hunt in short spurts.  Two or three hours at a time.  Because of this, and the grounds where I hunt, I can't have a dog like a Redbone or Beagle that runs off, following their nose, and won't come when called back.

    Will a Feist generally come when called, even if hot on a tree?  Will extra obedience training take care of this?

    2.) For the same reason, I need a dog that will work a little closer than my friend's Curs.  They roll out to 250 yards on the regular, and I need a dog that will work out to about 100-125 yards.  Do Feists work a bit closer than Curs?

    3.) I see that most of the folks on the forum are more to the south and west of me.  Do you know of any folks hunting Feists in or near PA?  

    4.). Because of my work schedule, I'm looking for a young, "started" dog.  A started dog would really stretch my budget, but in all honesty, with work and other responsibilities, it wouldn't be fair to a new pup.  I haven't seen many "started" dogs being offered-- are there Feist guys that have started dogs for sale on a regular basis?

    Thanks in advance for your time, and I'm looking forward to being a member of your community. 

    --Shake
