I'm about to purchase a new Jack Russell pup and was wondering if anyone had any experience hunting squirrels with them. He will be a family pet but I'd love to make a squirrel dog out of him if he has the right stuff. I had a good squirrel dog years ago. He was a Norwegian Elkhound and picked up treeing squirrels on his own with no training. It seems as if squirrel dogs have pretty much disappeared around this area. I know that fiests and curs are popular breeds for squirrel hunting but I'm partial to Jack Russells. Thanks for any info or tips.
