Shadowtail Kennels

Puppies & Young Dogs

Information about our pups:

We produce several litters a year from within our kennel or through the use of outside stud dogs to our females.  The natural treeing ability and hunting instinct of the Appalachian Mountain Feist dog are the main focus of our breeding program.  We refuse to use any brood dogs in our breeding program, period. If the dog does not tree its own squirrel  in the wild then the dog will not be bred here at our kennel.  We selectively breed our dogs based on

their natural hunting ability, genetic traits that I find desirable in a squirrel dog, and to improve the natural born ability in our Mountain Feist Squirrel Dogs.  I am a firm believer in hunting the best dogs that I can in the present day while working solely towards producing a much better squirrel hunting dog of tomorrow.

All of our puppies are raised in a clean, indoor environment and are socialized daily with humans, children, and other dogs from birth.  We do not raise shy pups of any form here.  Any puppy leaving our kennel will have their first round of shots, wormed regularly with Nemex 2 brand wormer, will have its NKC puppy registration, and will have been physically inspected by myself prior to leaving our Kennel.

Puppies from our Kennel will be NKC registered at birth.  Some of these pups may also be UKC or BMFR registered depending on the cross.  We will gladly have your pup registered across any registry you desire as long as you provide the additional funds to do so. 

The package that we include with our pups contains a vaccination card with a detailed record of the dates that the puppy was wormed with Nemex 2 brand wormer, their first vaccination date, and the projected vaccination dates out to 1 year old.  The package also includes a week supply of puppy food, puppy treats, a tennis ball, chew bone, and a few gray squirrel tails just for good measure.

We do not ship pups or dogs

I cannot guarantee the health of any pup or dog placed in a shipping or hauling situation.  As an act of my personal discretion, we refuse to ship any puppy or dog from our kennel.  These pups and young dogs are the future of our kennel and their health and well being is placed first and foremost when leaving our kennel.

Our Mountain Feist Dogs are only placed in hunting homes!

We are extremely grateful to everyone for the overwhelming amount of interest in our Mountain Feist dogs, however, the Mountain Feist dogs we raise are bred for and intended to be hunted on squirrel, raccoon, or to serve as working dogs in rural areas.  We are very selective of where our Mountain Feist dogs are sent and we prefer that they are sent to hunters who will utilize them to their full potential.  I do apologize in advance but we do not produce any puppies or dogs to be placed in a "pet" or non-hunting home.  These are hard wired working dogs and they need to be afforded the opportunity to preform the task they were bred to excel in.

Pricing & availability

Our Mountain Feist pups are priced at $350.00 USD.  A nonrefundable deposit of $50.00 is required to reserve a pup in your name.  The remaining balance can be paid when you pick up your puppy. 

 Deposits are only accepted via Personal      Checks, U.S. Postal Money Orders, or Paypal.  


If you have purchased a female puppy or dog from us in the past then we welcome you and encourage you to breed back to our males, free of charge.  I may request a puppy depending on the cross but only a negative brucellosis test would be required to stud back to our males in this situation.
