Hopefully below is a little encouraging info for who ever bought these pups.
Now remember....a lot depends of the dam of these pups but
I bred and started Bob's litter. Bob could really run a rabbit as pup.
I have Bob's littermate brother here Honey Island Midnight Eli (unshakeable dog) I kept from that litter. Like Bob, Eli is a fine animal in my and quite a few other dog mens opinion and so are his pups.
I love this dog and more importantly his pups. The old school hounds men that have heard about or run with and hunted with Eli and his pups want to buy them. One of Eli's outstanding daughters that was bred produced and raised 6 pups for one of my close friends. They are 8 months old and we have killed over 150 rabbit hunting with just them. They are all good and none can be bought not even by me.
I have bred Bobs brother I have here Eli to 5 heavy as it's gets BC\SF influenced females I own. I still own every pup I started he has produced for me to date.
I have 3 litters of weaned pups out of Eli in brooders right now and a litter out of two of his sons Able and Midnight. The other son Spike the smallest one will be bred this spring God allowing. The three derby males off Eli that I am hunting now are out of Mr. H's littermate sisters I have here.
I love the dogs I'm getting from Eli so you may have something you really like off of Bobs pups. Bob like Eli is Royally bred.
Below is a picture of these hounds style of running a rabbit and they do have all the gears, also the out come of hunting with this style of hound and a picture of one of Eli's Derby sons "Midnight" attempting to chew a rabbit out the tree they put him in. Hopefully this info is helpful to you and gets you excited and little pumped up about your pups family of fine Hunting\Trialing hounds!
