I got gator when he was 5 months old. He is the real deal hunting dog. Have kill many small game to him. He is great reproducer. I own a training pen and have had many different kinds of squirrel dogs and nothing has compared to him. Puppies off of him have sold for over 10,000$. My kennel is named after him, my hunting camp and he was even in my wedding… I have people across the country who came and buy puppies off of him. My experience with ViaGen has been very pleasant and they have had great communication with me.
