    If I may be so bold as to but into what I think was meant for Blue.....
    The nose...... These dogs are bred to follow their nose. They are tracking dogs not mushing dogs. Their nose will most likely cause them to forget their duty as a sled dog.

    Me personally,.... If I want tracking dogs I'll buy tracking dogs, coonhounds, bloodhounds.... if I want open land pursuit dogs I get sighthounds, GreyHounds, Saluki.... if I want sled pullers I get husky, Qimmiq, Mal, Sibe, Sam..... if I want herding dogs I get herders, Blue Heeler, Border or Sheltie or something like that.
    Forgive me for being a bit of a purest.

    That quad in the pic looks to be something we'd pay bout 5G for in Canada, not 5C.
    If you find one like that for 5C please LMK ASAP & I will come down there and give you a G straight off.

    I would think I would try to be constantly aware of the old adage"You can't teach an old dog new tricks."
    Also be cognizant some dogs are old breeds used for centuries for that one specific purpose, which still equals "old dog".
    There is a whole world of study out there that will back me up when I state "there is a lot to be said about genetic propensity."
