We have one black female still looking for a home!
Griz and Copper is a breeding that should yield a medium sized black dog with high drive and good looks. This litter will be all black. The puppies from this litter will make an excellent family dog. However past breeding tells us they will have enough juice to excel in hunt test arena or even as a professional guide dog.
- The scheduled pick-up weekend for the puppies is Saturday July 12th.
- Please Mark it on your calendar.
- If you are unable to be at the kennel for the scheduled pick-up alternative arrangements will need to be made prior to the pick-up date.
- As per FAA regulations all puppies shipped via Delta Airlines can only leave the kennel after they turn 8 weeks old.
Learn More About Griz
Griz the pointing lab is a record setting dog in the APLA by becoming the first 4X GMPR at less than 2 years of age. At 23 months of age he broke the previous record of his half brother by over 6 months. Griz also went 5/5 in AKC senior 1 year of age! Griz will compete for his AKC Master title in the spring of 2013. I also ran Griz in his and my first shoot to retrieve event and finished a very respectable third (it would have been 2<sup>nd</sup> if I shot better). This finish was over 28 traditional pointing breed dogs in the pointing division. The event was the Pheasants Forever National Quail Championship in Kansas City and put on by Bird Hunters United. We plan to run more of these events next year!
Griz is one of those special dogs that has a huge motor in the field, but is very controllable and wants nothing more than to be a team player. Griz has an unbelievable demeanor for a dog with his power. He is truly a gentleman that is extremely intelligent & confident, but doesn’t have a dominate bone in his body. He is an excellent marking dog and is rock solid steady at the line. Griz has been a natural pointing dog from day 1 and point’s way off birds. He is extremely reliable and is allowed to run big in the CRP fields of South Dakota or comes in close for the heavy cover sloughs of Iowa.
Griz has a loaded pedigree including 6-Grand Master Pointing Retrievers, 7-Master Hunters, 8-Amateur Field Champions, 5-Field Champions,1-Qualified All Age, 1- 2xNational Amateur Field Champion, and 4- APLA Hall of Fame dogs! Some of the biggest names in the Pointing lab world and the Field Trial world have come together to create a truly exceptional animal!
Learn More About Copper
Copper — Daughter of MPR IPR CPR Brock’s Golden Nugget and CP HPK’s Kirby. This dog is a full time working dog at R&R pheasant hunting in South Dakota. Copper is a larger female, coming in at that 70 lbs range and standing 24″ at the shoulder. She, like most of our females Copper is one of those dogs whose muscles ripple when she walks past you. We have fallen in love with this square, otter tailed dog! One of the things that makes copper truly a unique dog is how fast she is able to transition from the field to the home environment during the off season.
Copper has been both trained by amateurs and professionals and it is important to keep in mind that she was never trained to compete on the hunt test circuit. This dog was trained to work on a SD hunting preserve. This difference in training, has resulted in one heck of a hunting dog, and she even was able to pass her CP test with style earning the top score in the upland field. She has shown us that she has the ability and the drive to be a HPK signature female.
