Gritty Drahthaar & Dispatched Badger

Gritty Wasatch Drahtaar & US Badger
There are Dogs that will close on serious vermin like Badgers.
Jagds, Drahthaars, German bred Kurzhaars & Longhaars, Pits and Dogos all will put teeth on fur. Unlike Airedales and other dogs said to be ‘gritty’.


Well Established US Hunting Bred Airedale: Closer?

German Bred Drahthaar by Comparison, WILL Close. Talk is cheap.
Photos and Video does not Lie.


All Examples of Versatility shown by Deutsch Drahthaars
From dispatching Vermin, treeing, trailing, dead game baying or outpointing a pointer.
And note quietness on a chain gang.

This is a typical Drahthaar that would rather die of hypothermia than refuse an icy retrieve

This same dog also works well in the uplands, duck blind and is a great deer recovery blood tracking dog.

    Drahthaar working on Blood tracking and some reward at the end of the track.. 🙂

    An experience typical of the Drahthaars Persistence in game recovery, taken from a US Kennel:

    ‘T is also trained as a blood-tracking dog for recovering wounded hoofed-game while on lead. In her slide show, you’ll see a shot from her first “real” track – a spike buck that she located on a 16-hour old blood track.
    More recently, she was started after dark on a blood track and took it for about two hours.
    We then took her back mid-morning of the next day, and she continued the blood track for well over another mile and a half, mostly through cedar swamp hummocks and a huge flooded meadow, until she produced the deer.
    We watched the huge buck bound off for a couple hundred yards, apparently none the worse for wear. We then walked back to the truck on as straight a line as possible – the Astro said that Tavi had traveled 5.8 miles from the first moment she had been put on the track.’

    US bred VDD Drahthaars being used by a Southern nuisance hunter to safely remove feral hogs from traps, the only safe way to do so.

    I’ve had 2 Airedales from working lines and they were completely worthless. And especially the one from the guy with the website in CA. A chickenshit, inbred cripple that is possibly the dumbest dog I’ve ever owned. And I thought horse traders were crooks..
