Here is an News Article About Fritz

Bella has a Junior Hunter Title only and is being used as a personal hunting companion & Guide Dog for preserves. She is a mid-range dog that typically works between 100-200 yards, has the best nose I have ever seen on a dog in 10 years of watching dogs in the field and typically points her birds from 50 yards and out and in the worst possible conditions. She has excellent conformation, a beautiful, stylish point with head high standing tall. She is a very biddable dog that loves to please and loves her people. She is a sleeps at your feet type of dog in the house with great manners. She is the result of generations of "Best to Best" breeding of Guide dog lines out of South Dakota and Kansas. You will not find any Titles in the first 5 generations of her Pedigree(Guide dogs), but research going back in her Pedigree to the earliest imports I have been able to track has yielded some 120+ National Field Champions, Field Champions, Amateur Field Champions, Dual Champions and Champions. Pix of some of the dogs in her ancestry can be found in the "Great Dogs from History" link on this site. She is a Solid Black with a White Chest blaze. Bella is owned and loved by Rick Heare of Wardensville, WV.

Pups from this litter can be expected to be "Solid Liver", "Solid Black", "Liver and White Patched and Ticked" and "Black and White Patched and Ticked". This should be a great outcross that should produce pups with outstanding noses, excellent conformation, great personalities, biddability, and disposition that will be bold and confident and should be medium to big going range dogs. They should naturally point very stylish, honor, retrieve and live to please. I will be keeping a pick of the litter for my future breeding program, if that gives you any insight into what I think this litter will be like.

We welcome you to contact our owners for yourself, look at our guestbook to see what folks have to say about our pups and us and we encourage you to come see the parents and siblings for yourself! We are breeding for a superior dog for the Hunter and Home 1st and foremost and stand behind our pups for life! We are testing offspring to verify that we are achieving our goals.
