Pick of Litter Brown Male, outstanding Hope Springs bloodlines - Chesapeake Bay Retrievers in Orlean, Virginia - Hope Springs Farm


Drop Dead Gorgeous Brown Male


Pick of Litter Puppy/ready in March

This is an incredibly good looking, smart little guy who is already potty trained, coming when he's called and doing baby retrieves at 5 weeks, the pick of the litter out of one of Hope Springs finest females. He should be well suited for hunting, hunt tests, field trials and certainly fancy enough to do well in the show ring, too. If I had room you'd NEVER see him advertised here! I'm not his breeder, but listing him here for his breeders, who've become good friends. They bought his dam from me, a daughter of my matriarch Puffin, and she's absolutely the total package of what a breeder strives for: great pedigree, gorgeous sedge coat, intelligent and driven--if I could steal her back I would, with this puppy!

Seeking serious competition home for this boy because both his breeders and I would love to be able to use him at stud down the road. And, we think he is good enough quality to build a breeding program around: he has "the goods" plus an outstanding, different outcross pedigree. Hence, serious inquiries only please; preference to owners who have titled dogs before. This puppy is located in Texas; prefer an owner that'll drive to pick him up but shipping available for additional fee.


DAM: Hope Springs High Cotton, bright sedge female by Manhatan's Shotgun Chief MH WDQ, out of CH Puffin II JH CD WDX. Tara is a stunning, unusually colored beauty that is a natural retriever, despite limited training; and is pointed in the show ring. She's a fantastic hunting dog and has a very different pedigree; half-sister to HRCH Hope Springs Dowry MH ***, Hope Springs Hush Hush MH WDQ and Hope Springs Rufsail JH** on her dam side.

Both parents have wonderful dispositions; they're both fast, stylish retrievers that are easily trainable, good looking as are the pups. All are uniformly correct, great looking and destined for many enjoyable years of hunting, hunt tests and/or showing.

SIRE: Tioga's Big Ponzi MH** (WW Buttons "Sly" MacGregor*** x Desmarais Cold Harbor ***) Bernie is a tall brown male that was passing Master tests at 20 months, titling and qualifying for the Master National shortly after turning 2. He's a hard running, honest and easily trainable male that also has show points, and in limited runs, has finishes in Qual. Stakes. More on Bernie HERE and 5-generation pedigree HERE

Clearances/genetic tests for pup's parents: Hips/elbows are good/excellent/normal for both Tara & Bernie and their parents/grandparents; both have clear CERF, Tara is DM/PRA/EIC clear; Bernie is DM/EIC carrier. This pup will not be affected by DM, EIC or PRA.
