Rim's sire is NFC/FC Sandee's Blazing Shane, who won the prestigious 2008 AKC National Gundog Championship amidst an impressive field of 100 dogs representing the best of all the hunting breeds. Shane is one of the finest Brittany sires of the past few years. His progeny includes Spanish Corral's Sundance Kid, the National Amateur Brittany All Age Champion in 2011.
Following in his sire's footsteps, Rim has distinguished himself in the field trial realm, achieving both his AKC field championship and amateur field championship before age four. Rim is a big running gundog who wins all-age stakes as well.
What sets Rim apart is his strong forward run, enthusiasm, style on point, and natural bird sense. He has extremely tough feet and strong confirmation, never having missed a day hunting due to a blown pad or lameness. His owner reports that at six years old, he has 250 days in the field hunting chukar, quail and Huns, and has never had a day off due to lameness or sore pads. His gate is a very long easy stride – the type of effortless, graceful run that is easy on the joints and enables him to hunt all day, and be ready to go again the next day.
Even as a young puppy, Rim had a beautiful and natural forward hunting pattern. Rim is what a bird dog should be: forward, biddable, excellent nose, great bird sense, natural retriever, and a natural backer with plenty of run. Rim is also a house dog: affectionate, level headed and loyal, without an aggressive bone in his body. He lives for two things – to please his owner and to hunt birds.
The mother of these pups is my female Smoke's Shooting Star. Star is a direct daughter of 10X NSTRA Champion Beeline Bullet's Proof and her grandsire is the legendary 32X NSTRA Champion Nolan's Last Bullet. Star is an extremely hard hunting dog with a ton of drive and style. She has an unbelievable determination when hunting birds and is not intimidated at all by the toughest of cover. With an excellent nose and her amazing determination, she is an outstanding bird finder. She flips gears when at home however and is very gentle, affectionate and is very eager to please. Both Star and Rim are OFA Good.
These pups should have all it takes to excel in field trials as well as making outstanding wild birddogs. They have an unbelievable pedigree including such legendary Brittanys as San-Dee's Blazing Shane, Nolan's Last Bullet, Beans Blaze, Hi Proof Rumrunner and Renegade's Kansas Kid to name a few. They will be ready to go home around the first of July and will be up to date on all wormings and vaccinations as well as being well socialized. Please call or email for more pics or other info.
