   Leave a bone for Sadie

The Bird

Doggie Dynamics:

Quick Bio:

October 8th 2006

Posing for pictures, filming TV shows, learning new tricks and rocking the agility ring. Her favorite thing in the world is running through the Texas Hill Country hunting feral hogs.

Kids and puppies. And she hates waiting all week to get out in the woods.

Favorite Toy:
Tennis balls, rope toys and every stuffed boar toy I can find. Real boars are preferred.

Favorite Food:
Raw chicken quarters and fresh deer meat.

Favorite Walk:
She doesn't really walk, she runs, very fast, preferably in wide open places.

Best Tricks:
In agility she has learned all sorts of strange tricks like weaving through poles. She can jump up on anything you point at, including truck beds and kitchen counters. Tell her to "git 'em" and she'll bay the hell out of a hog.

Arrival Story:
Keeping Sadie has been a serious challenge. Her mom is a ranching companion and her dad, who has since been killed by a big boar, was one of the toughest hog dogs I've ever heard of. I got Sadie to be an active pet but she turned out to be her father's daughter. Though she has always loved me to death, she didn't have a job and expressed her frustration as serious dog aggression. I had resigned myself to finding her a new home when a hunter and fellow Lacy owner offered to train her as a hog dog. Two months later she was a changed dog. Putting her to work and fulfilling her legacy allowed me to keep the difficult dog I love. Read all about Sadie's saga at

She is both very sassy and very shady. In the Lacy world they call her gritty. My friends in Austin just call her crazy. Sadie is the perfect example of why Lacys need a job! But she does have a lot of love for her mom. Lacys are the State Dog of Texas and an all-around working breed. They excel at hunting, herding, tracking, treeing, baying... pretty much anything you would need a dog to do on a Texas ranch. Sadie and I help the National Lacy Dog Association promote and preserve the Lacy as a true working breed. Visit the NLDA site at for more information.

Forums Motto:
