we got our feist through Dollys rescue he came up out of Oklahoma with his brother Bert. We tried to get both but Bert got adopted before we could get both so we ended up with Ernie (the wonder dog).
He was skittish as heck and wouldn't hardly come out from behind the couch for a week. We had to catch him in the corner to get a lead on him to take him out or anywhere. Took a lot of treats and time to gain trust. Now he's the most loyal and loving dog we've ever owned. When we go to my in laws farm for a day he bails out of the truck and runs all day with their dog, loves to get out and go.
He is crazy fast, he can keep right up with gunner running very fast on a four wheeler up the road. We call him the 40 mph couch potato. Can go that fast then literally trun off the energy as needed and be calm as day in the house.
He loves to hunt. Nothing more fun than an early morning run and he and I encounter a family of coons out on the road...its game on.
He and my son Gunner have become real buddies..
Ours came microchipped, neutered, all shots done, house trained too. He's been our indoor dog for the whole year and a half we've had had him, and I (knock on wood) have never had an accident to clean up in the house seriously. We trained him to go on weedy part of our property too and he won't go in our mowed lawn at all.
Has a loud bark for a little guy, and when he's excited like when he sees a coon, squirrel or cat, he has a high pitch whine and baying noise that is unmistakable. This little guy has some shoulders and can pull really hard for his size, surprisingly strong...hang onto the lead well when he sees something he wants to go after.
