Rio is a very sweet, gentle, 70-pound, intelligent yellow female with a strong pointing Lab pedigree. She was born on March 9, 2011. Her Father, Josiah, is from Sam’s Creek Kennels and is a sweet dog with one of the most intensely staunch points that we have seen. Rio is a very special dog. She's super quiet, calm, and almost frighteningly clever. She likes to sneak about thinking of ways to outsmart us, so we have to pay extra attention to this stealthy girl and keep one step ahead of her.

About Rio's Sire: Josiah passed the APLA CPR test without having to be “Whoa” trained, and spends half his time in the field on point. He hunts for South Dakota pheasant regularly and hunters have commented, "Wow! What a great experience to hunt behind a top quality pointing Lab like Josiah.” This dog will be one to watch in future.

About Rio's Dam: Rio’s mother, Bristol, was a Marble Mountain female we were very proud of. She had great looks, intense hunting desire, with tremendous talent and a strong pedigree.

About Rio's Father and Grandfather: Bristol’s father and grandfather are two of the strongest yellow pointing Labs of all time: GMPR Far’s Shake Quake and Quiver MH (y)* and GMPR Bar None’s Snake River Otter MH (y)*, consecutively. Bristol was a delight to train and is always the eager hunter, both in the duck blind and the pheasant field.
