One of the best we ever had the privilege to own. A real tree dog and she did not care if it was coon, black bear, mountain lions or bobcat, if it treed she would cold trail, run, bay and tree until I got to her. Alone or with company she did not care.

Snake led the race on this one, way out front & treed up first. Was a long hard cold trail that we started on a 5 1/2 inch width front pad. Unfortunatley they switched to a 75 pound bear. They were a lot prouder than I was!
Snakes son, Razor. Was cold trailing with old dogs at 8 months old on bobcats & coyotes. Never left a track and always finshed every track with the old dogs all winter. Did excellent job this past summer for us also. Looks like might be a outstanding hound as he matures.
