I originally purchased this pup to bring some strong hunting lines into my working labs, and to use him as a working detection K9. Recently had a change is career and am no longer breeding or raising woking dogs. Pup has not been started on any scents or odors, other than a retrieving bumper or Kong. He would be ready to start on scent today. Pup has a strong hunt behavior, keeps a low head and follows up his hunt very nicely, often beating out my seasoned explosive detection K9 on the Kong. I am amazed more and more by his natural talent and ability as the days pass. He has a strong, natural retrieve and naturally soft mouthed. He is a hardy pup that doesnt mind the water or thick trees and brush. Started on a collar, but will need some finishing. He is still very much a pup and has some growing and maturing to do, but has been a delight to have around and gets better by the day. He will do well in any direction he is taken. AKC registration is limited. Located in Utah
