The Mountain Feist dog is a sleek, compact canine that has a handsome profile and short coat. The average example of the breed stands 10 to 22 inches tall. The ears are pointed and can be upright or folded over. As Mountain Feist puppies grow into adults, their muscular shape becomes more prominent.
Healthy dogs will have powerful legs with curved nails that are sharp and ideal for climbing. This quality improves the canine’s ability to chase down elusive small game. Mountain Feist breeders will offer pups in a wide range of colors, however black, white and light brown are the most common.
