Orion's Pegasus (Peg) is a two year old black Lab female who I am offering for sale to a good hunting home. Peg is a beautiful, athletic, energetic 55 pound dog. Perhaps her greatest assets are her drive, soundness, and her desire to please. I think Pegasus' name fits her well; she seems to think she can fly just like the mythical flying horse for which she was named! If you call Peg, she will fly to your side and ask what she can do for you. She is very attentive and craves her master's approval.
Peg is an affectionate dog who is intensely birdy. She has a good nose and is effective at rooting out sulking game birds in the upland field. Additionally, Peg doesn't hesitate to fly into the water when asked; she has a bold water entry and is a natural waterdog.
Peg has been conventionally trained without the use of an e-collar and has spent countless hours with me in the woods and fields of Indiana where I work as a consulting forester. During these regular outings she has become familiar with all types of terrain and covers. She also has learned how to stay with her master on extended hikes in any cover. Peg is steady, delivers to hand, retrieves double marks, and can run modest blind retrieves. I have no doubt that with continued training and field experience Peg will be an excellent gundog in the marsh or uplands.
You may ask why I'm offering to sell such a great dog. As a breeder I audition each pup I keep as a potential future brood bitch. I have some very specific goals I am pursuing in my breeding program. One of my goals is to breed dogs who fit my image of an ideal field bred Labrador. Peg is a bit smaller in stature than I prefer, so I have elected to sell her to make room for a new puppy.
Peg was born on Jan. 16, 2011 out of Orion's Britannia (Annie) by GMPR Cashman's Super Trooper MH (Trooper). You can view pictures and obtain information about Peg, her mother Annie, and see their health clearances and pedigrees at my website www.orionlabradors.com. Pictures and information on Peg's sire, Trooper, can be found at www.cashmankennels.com.
The purchase price for Peg is $3,500. Please contact me if you have any questions about Peg or if you'd like to make an appointment to come see her.
