I wouldn't breed before a dog is at least one year of adg.But I absolutely would NOT BREED until the dog has proven her self as a hound.Theres to Manny pot lickers out there already!!! just because someone breed just any old dog to any old jip.Breed Good dogs and lessen the chances for duds.
Just my opinion.
I couldent agree more!!!
I have a 5 month old walker that is running and treeing on her own... The other night I took her out by herself, she treed a coon right away
I didnt even have a gun with me, so I had to walk home and get it. It sure was nice to hear her treeing the whole time, when I got back she was still treeing hard!!
I know she is young and still has a long way to go, But all indications say she'l be a keeper
