Chief was born 7/9/07, sire Hillbillies Shiloh Holy Man, dam Hillbillies Farmers Daughter. Chief came to rescue from a family that found they had no time to work on training him for hunting. He lived primarily outside in a kennel so is now learning house manners. Chief is very friendly, loves to be with people, never met a stranger, tail wags 24/7. He seems to love all other dogs he has met. He is getting along fine at my house with a pack of Vís male and female. Chief wants to be the party master. He loves to run and play. Chief has been around water and does like to swim. He has also been around kids and did well in his former home but did not live in the house with them. I think he is a bit too energetic for real young kids. Chief was out in the field a little, is not reported to be gun shy, and is from strong field lines. He is very high energy and will need a good outlet such as a home with a runner or a home with another young dog that will play, play, and play with him. A tired dog is a good dog! Chief does sit and does come when called (for the most part). He is unknown with cats and might be too much for a small dog as he likes to use his paws to play.
Nov 2010: Chief found a great home in the wide open spaces of central Oregon. He loves to follow Kern around on the 4 wheelers. He also has quite the swanky ride as Kern and Laura travel between OR and CA and all places in between in a large motorhome. Chief enjoys being in CA on the water and in general being with his people all the time. If you happen to meet up with Chief down the road somewhere, give him an ear scratch from his friends in UT & ID!
