Advice on Puppy coming in April

Postby C.J. » Mon Mar 03, 2014 10:12 am

I cancelled the deposit I had on this one, Both Pedigree's were pretty bad from a hunting aspect.

Can you post a pedigree? It's not all knowing but a start.

the sire is similar, hunting lines on one side with some great dogs and some show on the other.

Thanks for posting. It sounded like your question was hesitancy on the dog having drive. If that is right I don't know what to say except I wouldn't buy this breeding to hunt myself.

For you - what do you see that indicates a good hunting dog?

5 generations ago is hardly a testament to the pup you'll get BTW.

Good luck whatever you do. I don't gamble on my long term dog investments. Some do.

C.J., unless you have personal experience with those five generations and can set me straight, if you think the dam's pedigree is "all hunting," I'd like an opportunity to sell you my duck blind, which also goes by the name of the Brooklyn Bridge.

And you're right, the sire's pedigree is similar: Not even a single Junior Hunter in the last three generations.

Not trying to tell you yea or nay on the litter, nor make your pick elsewhere for you, just when it comes to Lab pedigrees, caveat emptor, baby.
