We strive to breed versatile dogs that will use their eyes, ears and nose to locate game.
Although we mostly hunt for squirrels we also hunt rabbits, 'coons and upland game birds with the dogs. We primarily hunt recreationally with our dogs but have had success in the competition realm.
The Gray Line of Mountain Feist has been refined over 5 generations (and counting) with the purpose of improving overall hunting ability and consistently producing desirable traits.
While hunting ability in our dogs is the primary focus, we also breed to balance the admirable breed characteristics that also make the Mountain Feist a desirable companion for an active rural family. Gray dogs excel at both.
Mountain Feist are a very adaptable breed of dog. Our feist are introduced and socialized to many different environments so that they are well rounded dogs.
Our original feist squirrel dogs came DIRECTLY out of the Appalachian Mountains!
