hunting dog

my baby remington was hit and killed Sunday after jumping the fence at my parents house while i went out of town for the day. im sure most of you know how it is to have a dog and how sad it is to loose one. i was training her to be my hunting buddy. i was wondering what everyone thinks she might be. she was my best friend seriously, when me and my wife got into it she would always sit next to me and comfort me.
my idea is
plott hound boxer mix
or
boxer greyhound mix

im looking to get another one just like her becuase she was by far the best dog i have ever had. super loyal, super pertective of my wife and house. loved little kids to death.



any look alikes or guess's are helpful im going to do everything in my power adopt one exactly like her.
RIP Remi

I am sorry about your loss! Dogs are without a doubt man's best friend, I am sure Remi will guide another great dog your way.

Have you thought about something with a bit of Golden Retriever in it?

When buying a mutt/rescue you can never predict the dogs hunting ability or intelligence. I'm not saying mutts are dumb or can't hunt, but you just can't predict until you get to know the dog. My advice would be to research dog breads and find breads that have the characteristics that you want. Once you know what breads fit your desires for a dog you can make a much more educated decision with a rescue.

I have been training and working with hunting dogs my whole life. TexAggie has hit it square. You need to find a breed that fits your hunting, and go from there.

I hate to hear about people who lose a dog. I know that's terrible, especially by accidents.

But even two dogs of the same breed can act completely different. So it's about finding the breed that fits you and your hunting needs best, then selecting one that has a good temperament and drive.

The dogs line and upbringing play a major role in their abilities as an adult, just like the attitude and temperament do.

Most breeds are very loyal with their families, and I'm sure you will fall in love again.

Damn, sorry about your dog. Mine's old - really old - so I'm steeling myself for the inevitable, and know that I'll be bawling like a baby for weeks when it happens.

You can have your next dog DNA tested. About $60, so you know what you've got. That helps a lot with training.

At any rate, you just don't know what's going to work. Mine's half lab and half German shepherd, and she would have been a hell of a hunting dog (loves water, swims well, tracks and retrieves, good sense of smell, extraordinary sight and reflexes) save that loud noises terrify her. She could have been trained out of that if started early, but by the time I got her, too late.

A good hunting dog is mostly made by training and somewhat by breed. But breed can be important. If you're waterfowl hunting, for example, you need a water dog like a lab, retriever or setter, or else your dog is going to be miserable. If you're coon hunting, hell, you can use any breed. No special requirements save for a nose and the desire to run, which most dogs seem to have.
