Father: Goliath was purchased from Sam’s Creek Kennel in Northern Oregon because of his strong hunting ability and rock-solid point. He is a handsome, well-built 75-pound hunting machine that loves life and yet knows how to settle down when indoors.  Goliath is a friendly, alert and fun-loving dog, who lives to retrieve and is very athletic. He has a high work drive, loves water, and absolutely loves to hunt.

Goliath is actually one of the strongest natural pointers that we own, coupled with his high bird drive and good natural quartering skills he is a fun dog to watch in the field.  He has also thrown puppies that we are very proud of, who display intelligence, good looks, trainability and strong natural retrieve.

Goliath has it all: 1) Superb looks, 2) Terrific hunting drive, 3) Even temperament, 4) Trainable nature, 5) Strong pedigree, and 6) Staunch natural point.  This dog has been a dream to train. He also is the true definition of a "NATURAL POINTER".

Mother: Midnight was born at Marble Mountain Kennels in Northern California on August 31, 2015 as a result of a breeding between GRHRCH 4xGMPR Rooster Smasher MH QAA (r) x TDK’s Whispering Willow (b).

Midnight is a 50-pound black Labrador Retriever who is sweet and friendly when it is people time.  She is both intense when it comes time to work or run and gentle when she is spending time with people.  Midnight has a soft personality when being trained, but loves to retrieve so much that she easily overcomes her shyness to focus and work. Her body is medium size with nice head and a slender frame. In the upland field, what is most notable is her natural point and her nice quartering style.

Midnight's strongest traits are: 1) her natural pointing instinct, 2) her friendly personality and 3) her intense hunting drive.

Because of her fox-red father Rooster, Midnight throws fox-red pups as well. Rooster is a 72-pound, gorgeous fox-red Lab (carries chocolate gene) who is a gentle soul and service dog in the house, and is hunting machine in the field.

Litter Description: This combination of parents is likely to produce black and fox-red pups that are 50-70 pounds and will make great house dogs, outstanding upland hunters and strong duck dogs. Pups will likely have a muscular slender frame and an outgoing personalities and athletic bodies.
