My old Plot Bear Hound once showed up with about a dozen stuffed animals which looked like puppies. I looked out one day and he had carefully arranged them in a straight line across the front yard.
He then marched back at forth like an officer inspecting troops on a parade ground. when he saw that one was out of line he growled at it a batted it into line with his paw. He then got to the end of the line , crouched down, and looked down the line to be sure it was perfectly straight then settled in at the end of the line with his head held up as if proud of his troops.
My mom said he must be having a yard sale.
I later found he had roamed the neighborhood and stolen all those stuffed animals from the neighbors kids, so I had to round them up and give them back. He was very disapointed.
When he got older I had to keep him chained up all the time except when I drove him to the lake for a swim and a run.
Plots are the most agressive of all hunting dogs, and his line were especially bred to hunt jaguars and man eating bears on the Japanese islands. They are less dangerous than pit bulls but unfortunately he was half pitbull, with muscles like Batmans costume and teeth like a lion.
