    Regardless of whether they let you in or not, KEEP doing what you're doing!! That's awesome. Do you plan to hunt him?

    Jack Russell's are not listed as one of the eligible breeds in the HRC magazine.

    I believe that you can run him/her in HRC. You may not get points or titles I cant remember for sure.

    Thanks Colin, I have heard from someone that you may not be able to attach the title to their name, but they could possibly give me the certificate just saying he's titled. I am hoping I can at least run him in one or the other, but I'm pretty sure AKC is out unless they let me run test dog

    Thank you so much! Yes, that's the plan! He is hilarious. I hunted my last JRT all the time, he would go with us on icy days and walk out on the ice to pick up mallards where the labs would have broken through We also took him goose hunting a few times and he had no issues picking mature snow geese up once he figured it out. He was a shorty JRT that weighed about 20 lbs and was 12 inches tall. Gator should be about the same! At 4 months Gator was already retrieving a gadwall for me in the yard! My goal with him is to get him to a senior level and I really do think he can do it but we will see.

    I appreciate that, Dave! This is only his fourth session of 3-handed casting. He's crazy smart!
