Sire:

Josiah is a 70-pound yellow Lab with a muscular, lean body and very calm personality. He is known to produce gorgeous pups with his gentle demeanor. He will throw great house dogs, outstanding upland hunters, and very reliable duck dogs.

He loves upland hunting and has a casual, but effective hunting style. He works the field with little effort and no wasted motion, then when he hits scent, he zeroes in on the bird, and starts to slow down stalking in a cat-like fashion, until he locks up on point. He also has one of the most intense staunch point that we have seen. He passed the APLA CPR test without having to be WHOA trained. As a young dog he was hunted on South Dakota birds, "WOW" was that an experience behind such a top quality pointing lab like Josiah. 

Dam:

Missy is a fun dog with an energetic personality that’s eager to please. She displays an intense desire to retrieve birds, she’s quick, and while hunting, her 52-pound black body moves through the field with focus and agility.

Her father, FC AFC Watermark’s the Boss, has a strong field trial history, which includes qualifying and competing in 4 Nationals and making the National Derby list with 22 points. He has also thrown many competitive pups. 

Her mother, Healy of Marble Mountain, is a strong natural pointer from very robust pointing lines that go back at least four generations. She has been the mother of many fine puppies. 

Missy has the following outstanding attributes:

  • Small-sized, athletic conformation
  • Intense hunting style
  • Strong natural point
  • Likable personality and sweet house dog

ABOUT THIS LITTER: Pups from the Josiah x Missy litter are black and will range in size from 52-75 pounds at maturity (females around 52; males around 75). Joey is rather like Charlie Brown. He's super calm and mellow, caring and sweet. He is easygoing. His motto is "love and be loved" until you get him out in the field to hunt and then he's single-minded in his mission. In the field, he might look nonchalant to the untrained eye, but watch him closely and you'll see that every muscle is taut and every sense is sharp and focused. (He's also one of Pete's favorite hunting Labs because he holds his point the strongest and longest of any dog we've seen). Missy's energy is on the higher side. She loves to work and is eager to please. She's more like Lucy; she wants to get things done and be a in charge. Missy's energy and intelligence have been channeled into training as a scent detection dog. She can quickly and easily sniff out any scent we teach her to find. She will work for kibble, but thrives even more on praise and the sheer joy of playing "hide and seek." We expect Missy's higher energy to be toned down by Joey's reserved and mellow temperament and that Joey's reserved and somber nature will be slightly elevated and more animated with Missy's more expressive personality. The combination of the two dogs should result in pups that are fun and gentle, lively and lovable.

TEMPERAMENT: Mother = Medium to Active energy / Father = Calm to Medium energy

SIZE: 45-70 pounds at maturity

HUNTING: Upland = 10; Waterfowl = 8

POTENTIAL FAMILY DOG = 8

POTENTIAL THERAPY DOG = 7

COMMENTS: This litter is likely to produce pups that are very intelligent, weigh 45-70 pounds at maturity, possess a medium energy level, be good housedogs, and be very strong hunting dogs.
