A little back ground:

I have only had him since October

male of unknown origin (probably the clincher right away)

seems to have a warmer nose (won't open unless track is really warm)

not the smartest dog

is rough with other dogs at times (has nipped other dogs in the hind leg at times)

is fearless about what he will go thru

appears to follow a track quite well

he is minding in the field better with the use of the collar

is rough mouthed on the rabbits

He is around 1 year old so maybe it is too soon to tell. When I first saw the roughness with other dogs I said no breeding. But is nose seems to be pretty good.
Shall I wait and see? and if so how long?
I don't have to worry about him accidentally breeding and would like your input/suggestions. I don't want to breed him if no good can come from it, as I know there are plenty of good dogs out there.

in what way would this dog improve the breed?
its puppies will be of vertualy no monitary value as you can not prove their pedigree, and their sire has no provable value I.E. championships , grand championships, trials wins... basicly you have a very fine pet dog and hunting buddy. he has no business breeding and you will do both yourself and your dog a favor by eliminating that drive from him.
please don't take that as harshly as it sounds. its just that theres too many puppies around that shouldn't have happened already.
