I’m looking at possibly getting a mountain cur as an all around hunting dog/family companion. Would be used to run raccoons with terriers, flush quail & pheasant, blood trailing, possible coyote work and whatever other adventures we come across. Looking for suggestions for a line with the following qualities;
medium sized dog under 45lbs
easy handling
medium range
silent to semi silent on track
silent in the yard (I have bark collars)

I have experience with bird dogs and patterdale terriers that have been used for all the above mentioned qualities. Suggestion on breeders are welcome and I wouldn’t be interested in a dog till spring/summer.

Thank you

Realized my original post wasn’t very specific so I updated it to be more direct

You might find some squirrel hunting pages on social media. Those guys would probably have good info.
