quote: back in the 80s i had a man made coon treeing machine ,fur was at a all time high ,hounds even pups were selling for more than a 15 year old kid could afford . so i used the only dog that i had to work with at the time , a full blooded border collie , put 54 hides in the freezer with him his first season in 2 weeks , ralph hated coon and was eager to please his master , it was a job skinning and carrying the fur he put up ,

A man made dog has to be smart to be trainable. They also have to be eager to please their master. A lot of those naturals are crazy and won't pay a bit of attention to their handler. A lot of those man made dogs are not counterfeits. An intelligent, eager to please, trainable dog in the right hands can be molded into a dog that is hard to beat.
