Update 12-05-16: I was told by Leanne today that all pups are spoken for.
A litter of Wirehaired Dachshunds was recently whelped. There are still pups available. This first time litter for ‘Dossie’ includes 4 male and 4 female pups. Dossie was whelped by us. Dossie is owned by Edd and Leanne Woslum of Idaho. They are friends of mine. They own and run a private hunting ranch. Dossie is a certified and established tracker. The sire of the litter ‘Max’ is out of Oregon. You’ll need to talk to Edd or Leanne for more info on Max’s background. I do believe he is an import from Germany.

My dog Sage got to track a real nice buck yesterday. It was a great track for a young dog. Sage is almost 6 months old. The buck went a total of about 500 yards. There was not much blood for the first 200 yards. After that it got much better in spots. I was happy with Jetta’s tracking and happy for this hunter, who took a trophy buck.
Later the same day I took Jetta out. This was an easy track for her. The problem was me, the handler. When we first arrived at the hit site Jetta was pulling like a freight train and voicing down a deer trail, with no visible blood. The hunter’s were sure the deer had gone a totally different direction. I thought Jetta possibly was pulling towards fresh rabbit scent, as the area is full of cottontails. After pulling her off that line, and searching the area the deer had supposedly gone, I returned to the hit site. As Jetta started pulling again down the same trail, I went down it a ways to investigate. Not very far in I found blood and then saw the deer laying close by. Good job Jetta! I should have known better.
Here are a few pictures of some recent tracks involving dogs directly related to our breeding’s.
Chui recovered this nice western whitetail. Chui is owned by Edd Woslum. Edd calls Chui the “Wonder Dog”.
Chui was again the hero. Very long track, down and up 2 deep canyons and 2 formidable mountains.
Vimy is owned by Scot Davidson. Vimy has been used as the stud dog in our recent breeding’s. Scot and Vimy have been having a good 2016 tracking season. Scot wrote that the above deer involved an 18hr. old track that went about 500 yards.
On this buck track
Tough track across over 300yrds. of picked beans with no visible blood after 20yrds. Found blood on the other side of the picked beans and the deer in thick brush. Thought it had expired as his head was on the ground but he got up with Vimy attached to his rear. Vimy made easy work of finding the buck 4 more times on the hot trail and the hunter was able to dispatch him.Total of 3/4 mile successful track.
Derek of Illinois owns and tracks with his dog Fritz. Fritz has been having a great tracking season this year. Fritz came out of our B-Litter in 2011. Here’s his story of a beautiful Illinois buck track and recovery.
Derek wrote: Sunday afternoon I got a call from a local guy who films all his hunts for ‘Whitetail Explorer TV’ on the Sportmans Channel. While filming his Sunday morning hunt he made a not so great gut shot on a monster. He wanted to give the deer 12-14 hours before trailing and asked if Fritz could help. I had to work today so I told him we could try when I got off work at 430pm. He said he would look for the deer in the morning and let me know.
30 1/2 hours after the shot we took up the track, pouch shot to boot. The deer ran 150 yards, left no blood the last 100 yards, made a large circle cutting his original trail and Fritz nailed the track to find the prize! We will see if he makes the Sportmans Channel on this track?
Congratulations Derek and Fritz. Nice job!
I have a friend in Idaho that is expecting a litter of pups from his bitch Dossie. Dossie came out of our D-Litter. Edd and his wife own, and run a hunting lodge in Idaho. They are experienced and excellent handlers. If you are interested in one of these pups and would like more information please contact:

Sage (Sage Von Riggan Hibbs SW) will be 5 months old in about a week. I kept her from our last breeding. She has a great temperament along with a really good nose. Here are a couple pictures of her enjoying the fall leaves.
I received this picture of another successful deer track in Alabama involving a recent F-Litter pup named Jen (Feisty Von Riggan Hibbs). This recovery involved a non-typical deer that had been gut shot about 24 hrs. earlier. This was a pretty impressive track for young dogs (Jen is not quite 5 months old). I think much of the success is due to the training and experience of these handlers. For the complete story of the track go to www.alabamadeertracking.com Then go to latest tracks.
Fall is upon us and the tracking season is in full swing. It has been a busy season for us, and a while since I posted anything. I plan to get in the deerstand soon. I’m hoping for a mature buck.
I’ve recently gotten several pictures of some successful tracks. Two of the pups pictured are from the F-Litter (Jimmy Dean and Jen). They are young (4.5 months) and this is their first season. The picture of Jen also includes another young pup named Ray. He came from a different kennel than ours. Ellie Mae from Missouri is from the E-Litter. She is about 1.5 years of age. I really enjoy staying in contact with the owners and hearing how the dogs are doing.
Good luck to everyone this season!
