Which Would Be Better?
 
My friend and I hog hunt and he uses dogs while Im a archer. He recently got some 8wk old Am Bull/Catahoula mix. Im puppy sitting them for him right now trying to decide which one I want to keep. One is bigger, her body style resembles a bulldog more , but she seems shy. While the other one is a lil smaller but she is more nippy, faster and likes to roam around and get in trouble.

My question is which would be a better hog dog. I can only get one of them so Im wanting one that will be a better finder/holder. Will the one that is bigger get more outgoing as she starts to train?

Here are some pics of the 2. Sorry the pics are so blury. I didnt know how hard it was to take pictures of puppies till I tried. They never stop moving lol.







I took this one trying to show the size difference.

I dont do hogs here in PA (yet). (they are here)

I'd go feisty.

Good Luck!

A feistier dog will do you better. A hog dog needs to be brave, not shy. A shy dog is liklier to be cautious and hesitate, while a rambunctious one will fo for it, surprising it's query. Also remember the smaller pup will not grow into the smallest dog.

Why would you mix an American Bulldog with anything? A straight up American Bulldog from working bloodlines is the best there is for hogs. I am looking into them now for working our cattle and as a guard dog for my family.

I agree with the above answers on the two pups. A shy dog is gonna take a lot more work and a lot less abuse in the field.

i agree this is a very interesting cross, but catahoulas generally make great boar dogs :D
