More Bull Arabs

The Bull Arabs on this page were sent in by Benn. All of these dogs were derived from original Mike Hodgins lines.

'Zena' a very strong bitch.

'Loki' and 'Bonni' as pups. Now 2 1/2 years old.
'Simba'  20 year old line from Gary Anderson. 6 years old in this shot.
'Colossus' Son of 'Zack' 4 months old in photo was 12.5kgs at 4 months of age. Throw back to a heavier line.

Can these dogs do the job? The first photo is of nine pigs smallest 78kgs biggest 112kgs dressed weight, photo 2 is of a good boar (scales are a 200Kg job) and the third photo is 21 pigs taken off sorghum, average weight 52kgs.

Some more photos of what these dogs can produce

A photo (below) and info from Ray: I run the Paulsen line and they work real well ;their keenness to hunt is very strong at an early age which can mean the dog often takes on a job that they don't have the power to do and end up getting hurt; which can make the dog a bit timed on the next pig they catch. If properly introduced to hunting they all seem to have a better than average nose along with very fast body and great stamina. probably the only fault some people might find is the distance they will travel to catch a pig, without tracking collars you can be in for along wait . At the moment I have three b/a bitches & two cattle dog x bitches .

More Photos of Ray's dogs in action go to Bull Arab page 6

We sent some that are on page 1 of your Bull Arab pages, and now our dogs are grown up.

These photos are of "Bundy" (white bitch) and "Bubba" (black dog) and their first litter.

They have been on a few runs now, with Bundy, on her first ever run pulling down the first pig straight off the ute. Bubba, weighing in around 65-70kg has been a fantastic lugger and his size makes a great back up for the bitch. They impress us each trip we make with their finding and holding abilities.
