    Thanks for the tips Gopher and Hotguns (not to minimize the appreciation of Sixtos suggestion that I pin a bushy tail on my dog). I'm looking for a veteran dog and handler to play with, but they seem more common on the other end of the state. (Go figure, not too many in Detroit).

    Hey, It's probably not practical to try to get my dog to sniff out both squirrels AND rabbits, is it?

    Jack Russell Terriers are very popular here...being bred specifically for the task.

    Labs make good ones too. Bassets are good and any kind of terrier will work.

    The most tenacious little critter I ever saw hunt squirrels though was a Chihuahua.For some reason, it seemed to have a personal vendetta against squirrels. It wasn't unusual for him to kill a couple himself each time he went out. Some of those big old fox squirrels went much smaller than he was...but they were no match.

    Hey, you don't want that dog on you...trust me. He thought he was 10 feet tall and weighed over a ton. I guess he never say himself in the mirror...

    No pics. He got a lot of ribbing about that dog but all it ever took to make it believable was a squirrel hunting trip with him. He would carry it in the front left pocket of his squirrel hunting vest and just the head with the, big bug eyes would be peeking out. He'd walk to wherever it was that were going, and then he pick him up and put him on the ground. It never took more than a few minutes before he located one.

    I like a breed that has no hunting nose
    I want it to smell a very hot track
    not where the squirrel was yesterday
    better yet sight race him
    here's mine
    she a "carolina dog" ( Google it)
    I found as long as the dog is not gunshy
    it will tree a squirrel
    When outnumbered 2 to 1.
    Shoot twice!
