How's his obediance. Does he sit when told, Does he stay. Does he heal. #1 does he like retrieving things. If he has a strong desire to retrieve, i.e. the tennis ball or something, then you are on your way. If he isn't interested in retrieving by now, you might not have the dog. If he has good obediance and likes to retrieve then you already have somewhat of a huntin dog. I don't have a lot of advice, but others on here will have some great advice for you to procede.
If you answer these questions for us, we will then know a little bit more about your pup.
.....you've got to ask yourself a question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?
