Announcing the coming litter of GUN CH Darius de L'Etoile du Nord X CH Etoile du Mas D'Pataula. It is anticipated the breeding will take place sometime between January and March 2014.
Darius is the son of GrCHF GRCH Vernon de L'Escarbot MH and CH Ardoise des Deux Pierres Bleues. Darius recently appeared in Gun Dog Magazine, with a full page picture to lead off the article on French Brittany's, Epagneul Breton's.
Darius is a powerful dog in the field. He has high drive and is an excellent retriever. Darius finished his "GUN" Title in UKC last year in Georgia with a win at Pine Mountain. Darius has hunted Pheasant, Sharp-tail Grouse, Ruffed Grouse, Bob White Quail, Wood Cock and Hungarian Partridge, all with great success. He is has tough shoes to fill, being the son of Vern, but is certainly doing a great job of it!
Darius is also of great excellent conformation. He has been classed "Excellent" by a French Breed specialist, and is a "Champion in the Show Ring. I have no doubts that he will become a "Grand Champion" in the Show Ring.
Darius's Hips have been certified "Good" by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals, OFA
Etoile comes to me from Fred Overby's "du Mas D'Pataula" Kennel. She was whelped June 15, 2009. She is a little spitfire, and you can tell by the look in her eyes, she is always thinking. She is a bold, confident girl, with a lot of passion in the field.
Etoile received her 1st "Pass" in Field Competition. She was handled by 10 year old Keegan in Pine Mountain Georgia. February 2011. She was named Best of Breed in the Show Ring in Middle Georgia Kennel Club Show February 2011. She completed her "Champion" Title in the Show Ring in July 2010
Etoile is a favorite to have in the house. She is very calm and well mannered. But don't let that fool you, she is a dynamo in the field, and always looking to get out and hunt.
Etoile's hips were certified by PennHIP, where she was placed in the top 10 % of ALL dogs that have been evaluated by PennHIP.
