It all depends on what you want. If you want a dog to just bust through the brush and jump the rabbits then quite a few dogs will work as mentiond. If you want a dog that will jump a rabbit and trail it full circle then a lot less will. You're limited to dogs such as the basset, the Dachshund, the jack russell and of course the beagle. Out of all of these the one obviously bred for the task at hand and my personal favorite is the beagle. Then again, like I said, it all depends on what you want. For me it's not all about killing bunnies so kicking bushes and having dogs to jump shoot them isn't my thing. I go out to listen to the sounds of the hounds on a sunny snowy morning. If I happen to get something that's just an added bonus.
