We are extremely excited about the mating between these two outstanding dogs!
"Babe" CH CladdaghNRipsnorter's Baby Come Back SH was the pick puppy from our breeding of TimoXHalleberry, co-bred with Lisa George of Ripsnorter Kennel. Babe's sire, Timo, is the most accomplished GWP in breed history, and she and her littermates have tipped the scale as one of the most accomplished litters in the breed. Of 10 pups(5 black/white, 5 liver/white) there are 3 NAVHDA Natural Ability Prize I's, 4 NA Prize II's, 2 NA Prize III's, 2 NAVHDA Utility Prize II's, 1 AKC Junior Hunter, 2 Senior Hunters, 1 Master Hunter, 1 Tracking Dog, 5 AKC show Champions and GWPCA 2011 Best In Futurity and Best of Opposite in Futurity Winners, 2012 Best in Maturity, as well as 5 CHIC health certified so far.
Babe finished her AKC show title easily, being selectively shown at only Specialties, she won each time she was entered. She hit the field and quickly earned her AKC Senior Hunter title. Babe is an absolute doll, she loves everyone as well as every dog she's ever met. She has exquisite conformation with effortless movement, she is built to last all day in the field, and she does!
"Bisto" Sh Ch Kimmax Bourbon JW, just arrived from the UK in October 2012. When we first saw Bisto in person at 6 mos old, he left a lasting impression. He is a gorgeous solid liver, with an incredibly tight, harsh coat. He is out of Joschi III del Zeffiro at Kimmax and Uri Vom Liether Moor, both are amongst the most esteemed kennels. Bisto is phenomenal in the field, hard driven, intense and stylish. He has an incredible nose and is quite a tracking and bird finding machine! He spent the month of October with us grouse hunting, which was his first time, and he worked the woods like he's been doing it all his life. We will be testing Bisto in both NAVHDA UT and AKC Master in 2013.
Both Babe and Bisto are completely health tested: hips, elbows, eyes, thyroid, cardiac, and vWD. They're both used extensively in the field, both were hunted in the grouse woods of northern WI this past fall with us, Babe has had several trips to the Dakotas for pheasant, it's been a great pleasure to train and hunt both of them.
This litter will be dynamite in the field, a pleasure to train, live with in the house, as well as perfectly structured with proper coats. Our little dynamite "Karmin" is a half sibling to Bisto, they have the same dam Joschi III del Zeffiro, and Karmin is also a half sibling to Babe, they have same sire Timo. Karmin was the perfect mix of Joschi and Timo, and we expect nothing less from Babe and Bisto!
Potential homes for this litter MUST be willing to do NAVHDA Natural Ability test.
