BULL ENDURO -A NEW BREED OF HUNTING DOG

22 Mar

THE PHOTOS BELOW ARE OF 2 BULL ENDURO DOGS AT ONLY 8 MONTHS OF AGE. THESE ARE THE 2 MAIN COLOURS – BRINDLE AND TAN [USUALLY WITH BLACK MASK]. THERE IS ALSO A LIVER WITH LIVER NOSE AND YELLOW EYES.

THESE DOGS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED AS A NEW BREED OF HUNTING DOG IN AUSTRALIA MAINLY FOR WILD PIGS WHICH ARE A BIG PROBLEM FOR CANE FARMERS AND CATTLE AND SHEEP GRAZIERS.

THE DOG ABOVE IS ONLY 8 MONTHS IN THE PHOTO AND ALREADY 46KG AND WILL PROBABLY GROW TO ABLOUT 60 KG WITH BITCHES REACHING 50 KG. THE DOG BELOW IS A BROTHER AND WAS 47 KG AT 8 MONTHS. MOST OF THESE TAN DOGS HAVE A BLACK OR DARK MASK. THE BRINDLE ONES ARE VERY DARK BRINDLE WITH DARKER MASKS.

THESE DOGS WERE PRODUCED BY THE SAME AUSTRALIAN WHO PRODUCED THE “BULL ARAB”BREED 40 YEARS AGO AND WHICH HAVE BECOME THE MOST POPULAR HUNTING DOG FOR WILD PIGS IN THAT COUNTRY AND ARE NOW GETTING A FOOTHOLD IN THE UNITED STATES, ESPECIALLY TEXAS, WHERE WILD HOGS ARE A VERY BIG AND GROWING PROBLEM.

THIS SITE IS FOR FANS TO COMMUNICATE WORLD-WIDE AS THIS BREED IS DESTINED TO FIND RECOGNITION WORLD-WIDE AS A SUPERIOR HUNTING DOG ON BIG AND DANGEROUS GAME. GENETICS FOR IMPROVED STAMINA, HEAT RESISTANCE AND TRACKING ABILITY HAS BEEN INCLUDED IN THE DEVELOPEMENT OF THIS BREED BY USING DOGS OF PHENOMINAL ABILITIES. THE BREEDING WILL NOT BE DISCUSSED AT THIS TIME SO THAT OTHERS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO COPY IT AND TO AVOID A LOT OF SILLY ARGUMENTS AS HAS OCCURRED WITH THE BULL ARAB BREED.

    DISCUSSIONS can range wider than just about the BULL ENDURO and the other 2 breeds developed by Mike Hodgens. Reports about Black Mouth Curs, Plot Hounds, Blueticks and Pogos will be welcome. I would also welcome reports on any breeds or crosses being used on big game with good success. In particular, I am interested in any American Bulldog crosses that anyone is using with success on big game here or anywhere else. The other breed of interest is the Dogo Argentina which makes a good hog dog and good on puma in Argentina.There must be some good dogo crosses apart from the Pogo. I am told by Mike Hodgens there are some good Bull Arab x Dogos being used in Australia. The Bull Arab adds speed and removes some genetic flaws in the Dogo like deafness and temperament faults like depression and biting owners which a Bull Arab has never been known to do. Two natural hog catching dogs, one bred in South America and one in Australia bring out the best in each breed and remove any genetic weaknesses and produce hybrid vigour in the cross.However, all this said about the various crosses that can be dreamed about, my pick is the Bull Enduro because of the unique combination of hound and tough proven holding dogs in the breeding program of one of the best and most experienced dog breeders in the world.

      OK, ED [I CAN TYPE ED A LOT QUICKER THAN YOUR USERNAME, SO IF YOU DON'T MIND I'LL USE THIS] SO FAR SO GOOD. IT WILL ALL HELP DEVELOPE A MARKET FOR YOU IN THE USA. IT WILL BE ABOUT 2 YEARS BEFORE YOU WILL HAVE DOGS YOU BRED FOR SALE. SEEMS LIKE A LONG TIME BUT IT WILL GO FAST NOW WE HAVE IT STARTED.
      ABOUT ME – I GREW UP IN CAIRNS AND TOWNSVILLE IN NORTH QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA WHERE PIG HUNTING IS A COMMON SPORT. WILD BOARS CAN GROW TO 200KG [440 LBS] AND IN THE DENSE TROPICAL JUNGLE AND SUGAR CANE REPRESENT A VERY DANGEROUS ADVERSARY TO MAN AND DOGS. IT IS A MATTER OF PRIDE THAT THE TOP HUNTERS ONLY CARRY A KNIFE. THAT MEANS YOU HAVE TO HAVE VERY HARD AND RELIABLE HOLDING DOGS AS MOST HUNTING IS DONE AT NIGHT AND YOU MAY HAVE TO GO IN BLIND IN THE DARK ON HANDS AND KNEES KNOWING THE DOGS HAVE A BIG BOAR BECAUSE THERE IS NO SQUEALING. THAT IS WHAT THE BULL ARAB WAS BRED FOR.
      I DID MY BSc and PhD AT QUEENSLAND UNIVERSITY AND WORKED AS A RESEARCH SCIENTIST FOR MOST OF MY WORKING CAREER FOR LARGE COMPANIES LIKE A.C.I. LTD THEN THE 5TH BIGGEST COMPANY IN AUSTRALIA. HOWEVER, MY PASSION FOR SOME UNKNOWN REASON, HAS ALWAYS BEEN DOGS. SOME SAY THIS PASSION HAS RUINED MY LIFE SO I HAD A BREAK FOR SOME YEARS BUT I FIND THAT NOTHING ELSE CAN QUITE REPLACE IT AND I BELIEVE IT WILL BE THE LEGACY I LEAVE.
      I CREATED THE BULL ARAB BREED IN 1970 AND BRED AND SOLD ABOUT 5,500 OF THEM UP UNTIL 1989. WHEN I GOT BACK INTO IT IN 2008 I FOUND THAT THE BREED HAD FLOURISHED AND WAS BEING BRED BY MANY BREEDERS. THE PROBLEM WAS THERE WERE A NUMBER OF SCAM BREEDERS RUINING THE BREED IN VARIOUS WAYS. I COULD CLEARLY SEE THAT IF THIS WAS ALLOWED TO CONTINUE THE BREED WOULD FIZZLE OUT.
      SO I DECIDED TO TAKE THESE SCAM ARTISTS HEAD-ON AND EXPOSE THEM WITHOUT MINCING MY WORDS. I ALREADY HAD A WEBSITE UP http://www.mikehodgens.com SO I COINED THE WORD “WANKERS CORNER” AND EXPOSED THESE CROOKS BY WRITING ABOUT THEM IN THIS SECTION ON MY SITE. THESE PEOPLE THEN STARTED AN ANONYMOUS SITE AND PUBLISHED ALL SORTS OF LIES AND STORIES TO TRY TO DESTROY ME. I PUT UP WITH THIS FOR A YEAR OR SO AND THEN DECIDED TO DEAL WITH THESE PEOPLE BY REPLYING IN KIND ON THEIR WEBSITE AND BEGINNING DEFAMATION PROCEEDINGS IN COURT. SO THIS EXPLAINS WHY YOU WILL SEE SO MUCH WRITTEN ABOUT ME ON THE WEB. MY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS HAS LEAD ME TO THE POLICY THAT I GIVE NO CREDENCE TO STORIES BY ANONYMOUS PERSONS TOO AFRAID TO USE THEIR TRUE NAMES. I RECOMMEND THE SAME POLICY TO READERS TO IGNORE REPORTS BY PERSONS WHO HIDE BEHIND USER NAMES. THEIR ACTIONS ARE GUIDED BY FEAR AND DECEIPT AND ARE NOT WORTHY OF ATTENTION.
      NOW YOU MAY BE WONDERING ABOUT WHY I AM BREEDING 3 BREEDS. THE BULL ARAB WAS DESIGNED TO WORK CLOSE LIKE A POINTER. THAT WAS THE REASON I USED GERMAN SHORTHAIR POINTER IN THE BREED. THE REASON WAS SO THAT THE DOGS WERE FINDING BY BODY SCENT AND WERE IDEAL TO CATCH PIGS AND WILD SCRUBBER CATTLE WHICH WAS A HUGE PROBLEM BACK THEN. CATTLE IN THE NORTH WERE INFECTED WITH BRUCO AND TB AND WERE ON A DEADLINE TO BE CLEANED UP AND SOLD TO ABATOIRS OR SHOT BT THE GOVERNMENT BY CONTRACT SHOOTERS FROM CHOPPERS. BY 2008 PIGS WERE GETTING A BIT HARDER TO HUNT DUE TO EVOLUTION AND BEING CHASED BY MORE INEXPERIENCED HUNTERS. SO NOW A DOG THAT COULD TRACK ESCAPED PIGS WAS NEEDED. BUT THE DOG WOULD HAVE TO TRACK FASTER THAN THE ESCAPING PIG AND THE DOG HAD TO BE ABLE TO STOP AND HOLD BIG BOARS. THIS IS A VERY TALL ORDER TO DO ALL THIS AND NOT DIE FROM OVER-HEATING. THAT IS WHY I BRED THE BULL ENDURO.
      THE OTHER PROBLEMS WERE THAT HUNTING PIGS IN SUGAR CANE WAS GETTING A LOT OF DOGS KILLED. TOO MANY BULL ARABS WERE LOOKING AND ACTING TOO MUCH LIKE POINTERS AND THE BULL ARAB HAD NO GUARD DOG INSTINCT AND MANY WERE BEING STOLEN. SO I BRED THE BULL STOP, THE ULTIMATE HOLDING DOG I COULD CREATE WITH ENOUGH GUARDDOG QUALITIES TO PROTECT THE HOME AND THEMSELVES AGAINST DOG THIEVES. THEY ARE PROVING TO BE PERFECT GUARDS WITH NO TRAINING. NO ONE IS GOING TO STEAL ONE OF THESE OR GO INTO A YARD WITH ONE OF THESE. THE MALES GROW TO 70 KG AND THEY ARE SEVERE ON PIGS, KILLING ANYTHING UP TO 40 KG BY THE TIME YOU GET THERE. I BELIEVE THEY WILL PROVE PERFECT IN CANE BUT HERE IS WHAT IS HAPPENING – OWNERS GET TO LOVE AND VALUE THESE DOGS SO MUCH THEY DO NOT WANT TO RISK THEM IN CANE. I CAN UNDERSTAND THIS SO WE WILL BE WAITING A LITTLE LONGER TO REALLY TEST THIS BREED IN CANE.
      SO THESE ARE THE REASONS I HAVE STARTED ANOTHER 2 BREEDS WITH THE INTENTION OF REGISTERING THEM AS NEW BREEDS AFTER 4 GENERATIONS. I AM ALSO IN THE PROCESS OF IMPROVING THE BULL ARAB BY INCREASING THE SIZE FROM THE ORIGINAL 30-40 KG TO 50-60 KG AND IMPROVING GUARD DOG INSTINCTS.
