Sire: Goliath was purchased from Sam’s Creek Kennel in Northern Oregon because of his strong hunting ability and rock-solid point. Goliath 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.” 

Goliath is a handsome, well-built, 85-pound hunting machine who loves life and knows how to settle down indoors. He has a strong champion pedigree with ten of his fourteen ancestors boasting of Field Champions. He is a rare pointing Lab, in that he also possesses a strong field trial background coupled with a sweet, companion dog personality. Goliath has all of his health certifications in order and is yellow-factored. So, whether you would like a Goliath pup or would like to use him as a stud, this dog has a lot to offer. 

Dam: Rio was born on March 9, 2011 and is a very sweet, gentle, yet cunningly intelligent dog. She weighs in at 65 pounds with a medium build, and a good-looking blocky body with shorter legs. She is known to pass on her beauty to her pups. Rio is one of the calmest and quietest females we own, yet she loves to retrieve and is a stealthy hunter. Rio has an independent streak and enjoys attention on her own terms. While she is kind, tender and almost barkless, be aware that she is also very crafty and can sneak away in complete silence, in order to get into mischief. She has outsmarted the best of us; be forewarned that her offspring will likely do the same.

Rio’s Father, Josiah, is from Sam’s Creek Kennels. He is a sweet dog that has one of the most intense, staunch points we have ever seen. He passed the APLA CPR test without having to be “whoa” trained. He spends half his time in the field on point and hunted regularly for South Dakota pheasant. Hunters commented, "WOW! What a great experience to hunt behind a top quality pointing Lab like Josiah.” And “This dog will be one to watch for in future.” 

Rio’s mother, Bristol, was a Marble Mountain Kennels female of whom we are very proud. She has since passed away, but she had gorgeous looks, an intense hunting desire, and a solid champion pedigree. Her father and grandfather were two of the strongest chocolate Labs of all time: FC AFC Ryder MH and FC AFC Cuda MH. Bristol was a delight to train and was always the eager hunter, both in the duck blind and the pheasant field.
