Hey I'm Ash from SA,
I'm probably here for a different reason than other members, I've joined up to research a couple of pig dog breeds with the hope of expanding my dryland racing team.. (not that one dog qualifies as a team).
I don't think a pig dog is that crazy of an idea, some of the best mushers oversees have some pretty interesting crosses similar to those used for pig hunting.
Also I kind of like the idea of having a dog that has boundless energy and is bred for Australian conditions, might give me a bit of an advantage being able to keep fitness up during the off season.
I run a husky at the moment, and anything above 15 degrees is really far too warm for intense exercise.
If I can work out how I'll post a picture as it's easier to show what dryland racing is than to explain it.
Hope to hear from some of you
