Been thinking about taking on a animal control officer position at a nearby town. They have had the opening for a while and seems no one wants it very bad. It doesn't pay a whole lot but I was thinking about cheaply adopting a few potential squirrel dogs to take home and train and either sell them to anyone interested or giving them away to young squirrel hunters who would like to own a good squirrel dog. If hired I figure I would easily know when a good dog might come along and hopefully get it much cheaper than by their adopting policies. Right now if I go to the pound I would have to agree to pay the vet bill that includes neutering and all shots updated. Somewhere around 60 - 75 dollars. This is one reason why I don't adopt from the pound. If I'm going to pay that kind of money then I would like some pedigree papers to go with them. But basically I didn't figure I could always get that $75 back from the sale of the dog. How much does a good squirrel dog around your area fetch for? Also, I know that there is more to catching dogs and cats in this line of work. There's also problems with racoons, skunks, squirrels, etc. etc. Being a outdoorsman I'm no stranger to critters, their habitats and actions.
