Turkey dog

   Any dog used in hunting turkeys. Turkey dogs are illegal in most states today, and are almost extinct. In the old days, a turkey dog was used to trail and flush turkeys in the fall. The dog would return to the hunter and sit by his side until he called the turkey in. When the turkey was shot, the dog would run, grab him and hold on until the hunter came.
