    We use to hunt groundhogs with dogs years ago,the dog would hole one and we would dig it out.I've see them little fiest get a hold of a groundhog and not turn loose.

    I love it! I've dug several out over the years for my dogs.

    I dug that one out for Barney last spring. Supporting the dog, makes the dog, IMHO.

    Watched a Jack Russel go into a groundhog hole after one once. Heard a lot of barking and snarling, with the occasional wrestling sound. Before we could get a shovel, the Jack came out covered in dirt, but unhurt and smiling a wagging like it had just had the best time of its life.

    My original German Shepherds LOVED to play with groundhogs.... The male would get right in a one's face while the female snuck around the back. She'd make one quick grab & you'd see a groundhog sailing 7-8 feet straight up and before it could hit the ground, they'd each have hold of an end playing tug of war... No more groundhog! About every year, we'd get a call from my dad: "Danged groundhogs are in my garden again. Can you bring your dogs?????" Those two were a pair to be reckoned with!

    Great catch! I had a ground pig run up a pant leg years ago. I was walking in tall grass about waist high when all of a sudden he came at me. I figured he probably had a hole nearby and when he heard me in the tall grass he ran toward it and inadvertently found my left leg. Scared me to death!

    Had a jagdterrier that was around 15 lbs, she'd jump on a groundhog or coon and get the best of them in a heartbeat and crunch them up. Bites only made her more mad. oddest dog I ever had, all she cared about was killing.

    A jagdterrier is supposedly one of the most courageous terriers there is.

    That groundhog would have killed my Yorkie, as he would have had a hold of it and has no fear either.
