Just curious if this breed would be good snowshow hare dogs, faster than a beagle but still a smaller sized dog

guess they aren't that small at 55-70 lbs

Those are probably mutts that don't have a clue about hunting, ask if the parents are hunters and what they hunt? I know a few guys who have used Beagles for hunting showshoes, there are Beagles for sale if you do some digging, several websites list various gun dogs for sale. Chuck Thomas is still hauling dogs all over the country if you find one in another state.

They don’t look anything like foxhounds.

:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
