That is one very pretty Fiest pup. I wish you well with it and know you are in for some good times.
When I was a boy growing up, my Dad purchased a Fiest from a neighbor for $25. Imagine that, for a well-seasoned hunting dog. Times sure have changed. That little dog accounted for untold numbers of squirrels. She was a great hunter and lived to a ripe old age.
Many years passed and I dreamed of having another squirrel dog, but good dogs are both hard to find and expensive. But, I was always looking and hoping to come across a dog.
One time while at Wal-Mart, I noticed several people over on the side parking lot area, and a sign PAWS. They were trying to find homes for dogs and cats. Just out of curiosity and hope, I happened over. When I walked near, I noticed a black dog trying his best to get to one of the cats. He was barking and really wanting that cat.
Well, to make a long story short, I loaded him up and took him home. Later I realized he wanted to hunt and would chase most anything, even squirrels. After working with him for a while and shooting a few squirrels from him, he got better and better. Finally I had a squirrel dog after all those years - and for only the cost of a rabies shot.
He sits on the porch and watches the trees out back
