General Description

Mountain Feists are an interesting blend of personality traits: very loving and friendly to their families, but with a very strong prey drive. They generally do decently well with children; their sturdy physique and small-to-medium size makes them not too fragile.

General Health

Mountain Feists tend to be pretty healthy, as they are descendants of many other healthy dogs. However, they can be prone to a few health issues, which are essential to keep in mind as you consider adding this dog to your home and monitor their health over their lifetime.

Character and Temperament

Mountain Feists are an interesting blend of personality traits: very loving and friendly to their families, but with a very strong prey drive. They generally do decently well with children; their sturdy physique and small-to-medium size makes them not too fragile.

Exercise

These dogs need a lot of exercise each day. They do best when they get to walk at least 14 miles each week, so don't bring home a Mountain Feist unless you enjoy going for long walks or hikes each day. In addition to taking your pup for long walks, you can also give your dog playtime in a fenced-in backyard

Origin

Indigenous to the Ozark Mountains in Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, and Oklahoma, Mountain Feists are sometimes called "the last true hunting dog." They're believed to have been in the country since as early as the 17th and 18th centuries, and though their numbers have been small over the centuries
