Impossible to reach a consensus on such a thing but I'll play along.

I know a guy who uses his for wild hogs, squirrel, duck, dove, rabbit, deer(tracking wounded and dead, not running them), turkey, coyote, and that's just for the fun stuff. Through the week that same dog is his best ranch hand sorting and herding cattle.

I think any breed is capable of hunting anything you want. All a matter of training and exposure

African wild dog... Somewhere in the area of 80% success rate when hunting.

There would be evidence aplenty to exemplify your description but humans use many items, tools and critters, to enable successful hunting.

If you desire your "complete dog" to point upland birds the black mouth cur, wachtelhund and African dog are not options.

True, but I don't believe that pointing was a requirement. :mrgreen:

Georgia Boy, clearly there are some facetious folks responding to this post. But if you want to be serious, I repeat, pointing was not one of the OP's prerequisites.

A dog need not point to hunt upland birds. A flusher works for a great many hunters.

Lab. I use mine for upland birds, doves, when I waterfowl hunted she traveled the country with me, I flush and shoot rabbits over her and she will tree and retrieve squirrels.

I have also used her to herd sheep.

A limit on the strap is nice, but the kill has nothing to do with tradition.

I think Georgia Boy wins for most complete dogs. He has posted some great photos of his dogs in the past retrieving everything imaginable with fur or feathers including some photos of the dogs mixing it up with hogs. Not many true versatiles like that out there. Nice job Georgia Boy.
You could live without a dog, but it would not be worthwhile.

Thanks. I have several more recent ones but have not been able to post pics as of late because it says they are to big? Not sure how to resize.
