There is a lot of controversy about White English being good catch dogs. They are very willing to catch if you tell them to. I have used them to catch farm animals. Some hog hunters claim White English will let go and rebite if they are not drivey enough. I know hoggers that use them to catch and I also know some hoggers that refuse to use them on wild hogs. Most White English catch dog lines have another breed in the mix for prey drive and holding. Examples of that would be Old Southern Whites and American Bulldogs.
