The breeder pedigree shows as many generations as possible, as well as all of the titles in their background that don’t appear on their AKC pedigree. AKC doesn’t show field trial champions from outside the United States. When you look at a pedigree and see “FC” or “FTC” or “F.T. CH,” all of those designations mean Field Trial Champion. FTW means Field Trial Winner. Whether you intend to hunt a dog or not, having a strong pedigree with a lot of FTC’s in its background ensures your dog is from excellent stock with all of the great characteristics you want to look for in a great pet and/or hunting dog.
Barney is our newest addition. He was imported from Scotland. He is a gorgeous red dog. He is a compact little whirlwind of energy when he’s hunting. He can jump over a tall fence without breaking stride. He has a very nice pedigree. It’s going to be interesting to see what color his puppies are. His dad was golden who came out of a black and chocolate dog. His mom was red and came out of a golden and black dog. His great-grandparents were black, black, chocolate, black, black & white, golden, black, and black. Too bad there’s not a way to predict their color.

Billy was imported from England. He’s gorgeous. The pictures don’t do him justice. He is the sweetest, happiest dog. The breeder said he’s fantastic in the field, but he has a tendency to get excited and whimper before being released to retrieve a bird and got disqualified in British field trials for doing that. That’s not an issue over here. He’s exactly what we’ve been looking for. He has a truly impressive pedigree and is unbelievably fast.
RETIRED DOGS GO TO GOOD HOMES AND HUNTING PLANTATIONS WHERE THEY’LL LIVE OUT THEIR BEST YEARS YET
