Josiah is a 70-pound yellow Lab with a muscular lean body and very calm personality. He also is known to throw gorgeous pups with his gentle demeanor. He loves to hunt 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.  He is a great mixture of both pointing lab and field trial pedigrees.  His strong pointing traits come from the four Grand Master Pointing Retrievers in his background (Eli’s Blackjack Tori SH, Sir Mighty Eli MH, Blackwater Lexus, & Grits of Blackforest) and his intense retrieving drive comes from the five FC in his pedigree (FC AFC Hilltops Hayseed, FC AFC Black Gold Kate’s Rascal, CFC CAFC FC AFC Jazztime, FC AFC Blackwater Bart II, FC Red Oak Casey).  He is a true blend of the best of both worlds.


Shasta was born at Marble Mountain Kennels on August 10, 2016 as a result of a breeding between 4xGMPR Jackson’s Smooth Stout Points MH x “Rio” Grande of Marble Mountain.

Shasta is a 60-pound yellow Labrador Retriever who is always looking for a good time.  She is friendly, alert and very responsive dog, who is a total extrovert. When she stops looking for affection and decides to focus, she is very trainable and loves to work. She is also has a nice cream colored, thick coat. Her hunting style fits her personality, as she has a high desire to work, a nice natural quartering style and a strong love to retrieve. Shasta is likely to throw pups that truly enjoy the hunt and love life. Shasta loves people and approaches life with real enthusiasm and has classic good looks. 

Litter Description:

This litter is likely to produce pups that are 60-75 pounds yellow Labs of a medium blocky build, that are good looking, have even temperaments and will love people and any athletic activity you can dream of. In the hunting area, the pups should be outstanding upland dogs with a very strong chance of being great natural pointers. They should also have the intensity, strong retrieving drive and disposition for the duck blind.
