JJ (left) and Duke are ready for their next chase. JJ is Brown’s lead dog and the sire for most of his black­mouth cur pack. He took years to de­velop, and early on, Brown wanted to give him away many times. But at 3 years old, the dog “grew up and got him­self a job,” Brown says. JJ is ef­fec­tive be­cause of his scent­ing abil­ity. He can ride on the front of the rig and smell a pig from 800 yards off. When he gets on a track, there’s no stop­ping him. He’s a deadly com­bi­na­tion of drive and nat­u­ral abil­ity.
