So far, he's been a great dog and he's very charming. He's about 5 months old and we think he's a mix of beagle, hound and Jack Russell Terrier. Whatever he is, he's staying. We're hoping he will deter some of the chicken predators around here...foxes, coy dogs (coyotes to you non-New Hampshirites) and the occasional fisher cat.
Wishing you doggie dreams of your own,
