Jake is a pretty balanced hound. He has a big bawl mouth on track, several big dying bawls for a locate and a short bawl / chop on the tree. He generally is a sit down tree dog but will get on the wood as well. He usually is a medium distance hunting dog, but will hunt deeper if nothing is moving. He hunts the same by himself or with company. He has, what we would describe as, a fairly cold nose and can pick up old tracks. Jake has shown an ability to tree lay ups as well. Jake is a big dog and weighs around 80-85 lbs in hunting shape.
Jake lives in the house and is an excellent house dog. He is a member of the family and has a great disposition with people and especially kids. He loves to lay around and take up space on the couch.
