Only thing I can figure is somebody found her that knew what she was or might be and kept her, or she managed to get herself in a bind of some sort and never made it out of the woods. It’s pretty unreasonable for as many tracks as I made and how populated the area is for her to not have been found, seen, or caught on camera by now.

Gone with the wind it appears. Guess life thought I needed another big kick in the nuts to make sure I was still alive.

Looked again yesterday evening. Walked a probably 4 mile circle. Checked every barn and water source per JSH, on every place. No sign. Talked to every neighbor. Nobody has seen her. Talked to the neighbor i watched crawl in a deer stand about 5-600 yards from where I last figured her to be. (Which is with sketch caught on the shoat I found sketch with drowned in that shallow wallow.) right after. He said he hadn’t heard anything before he saw me.

 I can’t really make it make sense. Frustrating. I’m looking for buzzards I fear at this point. I’m not sure what could have happened but it makes a lot more sense than her vanishing and nobody seeing her by now or her not coming to me calling.

Haven’t had any hogs recently on camera I figure would be big enough to really hurt a dog, but they are in the country no doubt. Can’t think she’d have decided she was ready to try one that size though.

My damn luck. Take her and sketch hunting Saturday evening. They take a track 400 through a open pasture. Through cows and a bunch of deer, cross a fence into a neighboring place. Make the brush line In another 50 yards and Lizzo catches on the first bark and stays hooked solid till I get there to kill the hog. 40 lb shoat or so but dang it she was caught on the head and I mean caught hard on her 5th hog ever in the woods. First one she bayed. Last 3 had been caught with or by other dogs first.

They peeled out on me on the way back to the truck and I dropped them. After 30 minutes I go around county road back further north of where we caught the hog thinking maybe they went back and carried the groups track north. Get up there and nothing.

  Back into the ranch to where I kicked out. Hop out the truck and sketch is barking 800 further south. Get down there she’s on a wallow with a drowned shoat in it. Lizzo is gone. I’ve put 100 miles on my truck and lost my voice looking for her. No sign yet. Left a jacket out last night and nothing this AM. Sure hoping she turns up.

3/8 3/8 and 1/4 would be correct. And that does sound like a hell of a cross.

I’ll have to get a good picture of lizzo. No mistaking she’s a greyhound. She’s been on a handful of hunts last 2 months just Riding on the ranger. She Got to be around us when we killed a few hogs but never saw any action.

Showed her and 2 cur pups of my buddies a show in a trailer last week. They were already caught but she ran in there and after some looking around, found the ear and was catching and staying hooked for 10-15 seconds at a time.

  Then Friday morning I go to check a camera on a bait pile for a hunt Saturday morning maybe and sketch and her slip off the truck and go bay one of my Barr hogs. She was baying her ass off lol up until I started shooting. Killed that hog. Shooting kind of threw her for a little loop but it didn’t scare her and she stayed with it.

Saturday morning we dump out on top of hog bedded. We dump lizzo with all the curs. She makes a half mile race and is caught with my buddies grown dogs while sketch rolled over 100 yard across a county road and had another bayed and 2 rough pups went and caught it. I killed first hog, she left and went straight to other hog squealing as they were waiting on me with the knife. Run in there and found her some hide to grab ahold of. She tries to do a little hunting too and use her nose some.

 So far I’m really happy with what she’s shown. She’s barley a year old, we’re still new to each other as I’ve only had her for 3-4 months. The idea is for her to be a put out catch dog we can use with my buddys bulldog as help or send her to hogs in the open or even jump her into races on running hogs.

 I’m not too worried about her not being straight catch yet being she’s super young and I’ve read these dogs or slow to mature and take lots of confidence building.

I’ll get a picture tomorrow. Any info/advice is appreciated.

Who all has messed with greyhound, greyhound/pit, or greyhound/anything crosses for hogs? I came into owning a young gyp 3/4 grey 1/4 pit a few months ago. She’s right around a year old and we just got her started this past week. She’s not catching, but she is certainly catchy and is focused on the head end. Temperament and mentality wise she is far and away different from any bulldog or cur dog I’ve messed with.

Interested in any pics, opinions, stories, advice, suggestions, criticism you may have. She is by far the first of anything like her I have been around.

Here’s my sketch gyp, 2 of Tims pups out her we had this summer, and Tims crook dog he raised casting. This was about 7-7:30 pm cast after work. dogs struck at 650 and bayed at 700 and stood on the best boar. Killed 2 good boars and a good sow. Dogs rolled quick sketch had a fourth bayed and we ran out of light. We like dogs that leave. They did that, that day.

Thanks Thomas. We don’t get a 1/4 of the stuff I wish we did these days but working hard on dogs, half the time we’re trying to hunt another one by the time we realize no one got a picture of the first one. Soon as I get a good hunt lined up with better weather and a good set of hogs. I got a friend who takes pictures professionally that wants to come and shoot us, that should be fun and turn out cool.

These days I think we’re calling her 7. She’s been on a pretty good little streak of late. On the same hand we can’t get nothing to honor each other right now out of 7 dogs we’re hunting Just out of the blue they’ve all decided every once in a while it’s  “screw you I’ll go try my own” lol. Been frustrating when it’s happened some nights.
 Lost Tim’s up and coming gyp out of her from 2020 litter. beginning of the summer. That really hurt. The brother is trying but it just ain’t clicked for him. He’s getting sent to Gary Fritsch now to try him on cow dogs. See if a little change of scenery helps him out. As flashy a leopard dog I’ve ever seen, be a shame if he don’t make lol.

A little bit of what we’ve been up to this summer. I haven’t been on here hardly at all. Been hunting a little bit. Not as much as we’d like but hogs are hard to come by lately anyway.
  Lost some dogs, got some dogs. Culled some, maybe even made 1 or 2.
 Got sketch penned with a 1.5 yr old stud out of Joe Hejls stock. Hell I’ve got me a 3/4 greyhound 1/4 game bred gyp pup I’m raising now. Banking big time in her taking and easing a litter. I got big big plans soon as I get the next litter out of Sketch.

Hell she done scared me twice this summer. Cotton mouth bit and then turns around thought I was gonna watch her drowned taking a big boar across the Colorado river to a steep bank. Ended up cut up for less than the 5th time on her life but we got the hog and she swam back across on her own.

Hope you guys been after em. About to do some reading to catch up!

I am back in my part of the world, Texas and we’re back after them. Been on a pretty good tear. No numbers to be calling the newspaper about but when the dogs are casting and hunting like we want. Pups are coming up and trying to make some dogs, and we got a couple old heads acting like they’re 3 years old again. 

First hunts we made were in Swiss alp on What we call The Praire. Dogs hunted good. This country is unique and fun to hunt when the hogs are home. Capped morning with a puppy baying the best boar I’ve killed out of there.

Next one would have been south west Colorado county. Casted dogs and they left. Never checked up. But the didn’t find the group till almost a 2 mile trail job down the creek. Split from there. We went to 2 buddies dogs with a small hog. After they went 800 and got stopped. Back up the creek. Whole time the rest of the crew was bayed over a mile the other way on a sow in the middle of probably 400 acres of pasture for an hour. Didn’t even let her get to the pond. Impressive job by Rick Molly And Sketch. Does not happen often in our country.

 Will post more later

Colton those pups must be built more similar to the sire? They look like they have a little more body than ole Sketch. I’m glad they’re working for you.

No matter the method, rehoming or whatever, somebody isn’t going to agree or approve. I definitely have my own opinion but I try to keep it to myself. As Willie said, if ya mind your business then you won’t be minding mine! I have preached and chewed butt and lectured so many of these young hunters about posts they make. Sometimes it isn’t even the pictures but the gory story that they paint in the minds of people that read it. I’ve tried telling them it isn’t cool or macho. All it is ammo for the enemy. This very issue is why there is basically no more greyhound racing. They have fought this for the longest and look who won. I believe once I let someone have a dog that it is up to them from that point on to make good ethical decisions on behalf of the animal. So I figure it’s up to me to only allow a like minded individual to have my dogs.

Thomas, you said it with the last statement. My job to know who is taking possession of my dogs. Lots of folks will tell on themselves given the chance.
