Hitch is the big boss man around the place.
He has traveled across country several times and LOVES to ride in the truck.
You can find him swimming in the tank, out in the pasture surveying cattle, or up in the barn or porch relaxing and keeping watch over everything.
He loves people and gets along well with children tugging and pulling on him.
Hitch is extremely loyal, obedient, and SMART! Hitch has tons of drive whether it is after cattle, toys, or anything I point him towards.
He passes these attributes to his puppies!
Hitch weighs in at 65 lbs and is a big, thick boy!
Hitch is coming up on 12 years old and has displayed no health issues whatsoever. Hitch did have to have surgery on his left ear to close up a blood vessel (Aural Hematoma) that had been sliced open by a tick bite. His left ear will never stand again but this is purely physical and not genetic. He has beautiful clear eyes, good hips and fabulous elbows. This dog is very active, jumps over 4 feet in the blink of an eye and has had no internal or external health issues, ever.
Hitch's pups have displayed excellent health and his oldest puppies are coming up on 6-7 years old age with no issues reported.
Hitch is used to gather cattle, push steers up to rope, and even help in doctoring sick calves and cows.
He isn't only an excellent working stock dog, but also a great companion and indoors sidekick.
