I hear you, but I have seen some 500# boars that when they are pissed off, will put the hurt on most things and your dogs will not like the encounter with the right hog. I hope you never have to put your dog back together after getting slashed up (if that is even an option) it really sucks. i'm a big guy and i'm use to being the most lethal thing in the woods around here but i would much rather deal with a bear (around here) than a large pissed off hog. I'm not afraid but i do keep my .40 SW glock handy to back up my rifle when i'm tromping around with the hogs about.My little dogs are ~150lbs Great Pyrenees-Anatolian-Karakachan, when they want something to leave it normally does or dies. Besides I'm in the woods every day - almost always with a rifle or shotgun and my EDC.
In texas wild hogs have become a fact of life and most of the time they are no more than a nuisance, but they can become dangerous at the drop of a hat. on the bright side they eat really good, hands down better than whitetail as long as they are small and young, 300#ers are mostly pushed into a ditch and left.
