I have to say that my two Japanese Kishu-ken are the best pig and bear hunters that I have ever seen or used. They are extremely fast runners and extremely agile.

They are a direct descendeant of the japanese wolf so they have very wolf like hunting instincts.

They are still un heard of here in the US but my family has been using them to hunt pigs in japan for almost a 100years.

I have a 5 year old male name Liki(which means strength in japanese) and a 2 year old female named Yuki(which means snow). I hunt pigs and bears with them here in california.

These breeds are good with children and are a one family dog. They are also good watch dogs and are very clean.

The physical featurs of a kishu is as follows: Color is usually white with a little brown, they are a spits type breed and are related to the Akita and the shiba. They weigh about 75 to 80lbs.

My dogs were born on a wild pig farm in japan so their parents were used to rounding up pigs and also used to hunt them.

Socalgobblerhunter - Do you hunt them on private or public land in California? If it is public what area (and I don't mean for you to give me your sweet spot, but just what forest are you hunting for pigs in)???


I am a rabbit hunter and have two great beagles. Up her in northern NH we get some deep snow so we need tall beagles I have two 15 inch hounds and they will run on anything. Below zero or 90+ degrees in the summer.

In ou rpens we have coyotes and in other hogs- for training in our kennels we have plotts and walker plott crosses used for bear- coyotes- coon- and then joey- the leetle beagle has his home betwixt the other 16-and he hunts rabbits so doesn't need a pen of his own. Could you get away with these PENS in CA- i doubt it B Boxer and feinstein would pull your little puds off.

Catahoulas are the only ones that I run hogs with. Been doing so since the 80's. Only breed when I need pups. Might sell a few extra but only to folks that need them.

Catahoulas are my breed of choice, they work just fine for me on hogs. They find,bay and will stop one. I also have 3 Blue Lacy`s and 2 Bluetick beagles for running anything else that I don`t want chewed up. Ha Ha
