My dog Rufus is a HWV and has not long turned a year old. We have done some tracking training (if I'm honest not as much as I should
have done though). He's mostly a family pet but also a stalking companion for me, although he generally stays home if I'm just going to sit in a high seat.
I shot a muntjac last night which disappeared into THICK brambles.
Popped home to get Rufus and was back at the shot site about an hour after the shot.
Rufus tracked the muntjac for me (with a couple of diversions, lol) and we found it in about 20 mins. It had gone about 100yds into a dense brambles wood.
Never would have found it without him!!!!
So happy and proud of him!
