3X NSTRA Champion Setter

Shades is a 50 lbs white/orange male with a dynamic and bold personality. He has an even light orange eye mask with very little body ticking. Shades is an excellent bird finder who has been hunting since the age of 5 months. He has had wild pheasants, quail, prairie chickens, sharptail grouse and woodcock shot over him. Almost everyone comments on Shades physical beauty. He is universally attractive to dog and non-dog enthusiasts. He points with a high tail and retrieves to hand on land and water. He can perform blind retrieves. Shades is fast and will thoroughly cover a lot of ground. He will sit, stay, lay down, heel, shake hands, jump into your arms on command and is very clean in the kennel. Shades is a 3X National Shoot to Retrieve Association champion, 2006 runner up Missouri/Kansas Region champion, 2006 runner-up high point dog for the Missouri Kansas Region, and 2007 Missouri/Kansas Hall of Fame Inductee. Shades could have trialed in most any other trial venue, I prefer NSTRA. Shades is primarily a wild bird dog, and competes in NSTRA as well as preserve hunting. He is a grandson of Hall of Famer/Champion Tomoka. Shades' COI is 2.19727% with CH/Hall of Famer Tomoka contributing 28.125%. Shades' sister, Susie Smokin Weed, was the Open Derby Classic winner of the the English Setter Association of America's English Setter National Championship(placements recognized by AKC). The Orthopedic Foundation For Animals evaluated Shades' hip joint confirmation as good with no evidence of hip dysplasia. He is negative for brucellosis. Shades is registered and DNA certified with American Field's Field Dog Stud Book and is available at stud for $400, frozen semen for $500 plus shipping($80-$100).
