I have 3 heavy shorts and acorn springs bred females with a little elk run and one has shorts some on top and bottom and cranks chicken with a little elk run, was her great grand sire. Will try and post picture of pedigree later on.
Shorts bred dogs cross well with about anything their strength is line control, i have seen them cross well with nip otis, chicken, buckshot, stubby, and caddy alot of people also like them crossed over blackcreek dogs as well
They are usually big dogs run 15 inch class medium speed handle good as far as trash ive seen them naturally deer broke and seen some that would burn a deer up but thats with all bloodlines in my opinion
There's a ton of shorts bred dogs out there I'll tell you what I know about mine he's a big hound with a big mouth and nose the best jump dog I own briars don't bother him one bit he's a flat medium speed dog that will jump a rabbit and usually run a rabbit till you pick him up, now the bad,he will cold trail and has extra mouth in the check area,he is not Ill in any way ...
My dogs are exactly like Wilbur's except is 13" tall and like Triple0 said I have 2 naturally trash free and 2 I had to break. And two that are quite in checks and two that are a little mouthy and two that will cold trail but get it going good and stay on the check until they get it straightened out. Have all day hunt and plenty of drive.
If anyone has a Shorts or close outcross bred male and would like to cross to a shorts bred female I will give them 2 pick of litters and brucellosis test. I just don't know when they will come in heat and am in GA.
Where are you located Triple0 ?
