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".


Trinity was born at Marble Mountain Kennels on June 19, 2012 as a result of a breeding between two of our favorites, Major and Kate. Trinity is a 63-pound black Labrador Retriever who is gentle, calm and curious.  She has a quiet friendliness and is very alert and responsive to people and her environment. She has a sweet nature, but loves to train. Her athletic body and shiny long black coat is presented in a cute and small package. She has a nice close quartering style in the field and has a cautious natural point.  She loves to retrieve and has the potential to throw pups that are both great house dogs and close working hunters. Her strongest traits are her calm personality, her pleasant temperament and her thorough hunting style.


The pairing between Goliath and Trinity is intended to combine the athletic and intense hunting drive of Goliath, with the calm gentle personality of Trinity. We hope this will give us 50-75 pound pups with great looks, even temperaments and great hunting drive.
