Scotty is a handsome orange and white bird finding machine with a fluid athletic pace and a superior nose. He works at close to moderate range with great determination and game drive. He is quick to and has a staunch picturesque point. He has been trained and hunted over hard flying quail, chukar and pheasants. He is a natural backer and retriever – which will only improve with time and wild birds.
He has been doing yard work, field work and being roaded during the Covid crisis and is still crisp and ready to hunt. He has had significant field time since last summer and is e-collar conditioned and whistle trained. He handles easily and is a joy to hunt behind
He’s got a cool and laid-back personality and is clean and quiet in the kennel.
He comes from a long line of hunting companions and proven field trial competitors and this talent shows through in his field performance and kennel manners. He is the son of Black Sail (Fletcher, OFA Good) the son of my personal hunting dog “Pearl” and 2XNFC GFC FC AFC Uncle Kracker. Other notables include NFC FC AFC Hi Proof Rum Runner, NAFC FC AFC Jim De Bob’s Sparks A Dan D, NFC DC AFC Tequila’s Joker, FC AFC Blaze Dakota Trucker, FC AFC Chubasco II, and many other great champions.
His dam, Dan De Diamond Lil (OFA Excellent) is also one of my personal hunting companions who is hunted with me in 6 different states and 8 species of wild upland birds. She is also a long-striding fluid paced dog from Dan Collins- Katey Bar the Door and Jeff Hoskins – GFC FC AFC Sniksoh Spank’s Hank. The many notables in her pedigree include HOF NFC FC Bean’s Blaze, FC AFC Cooper’s Ozark Traveler, FC AFC Chubasco II, FC AFC Blaze Dakota Trucker, NFC DC AFC Gambler’s Ace in the Hole and others.
Scotty is a fast-moving work in progress, rapidly turning into an outstanding moderate ranging bird dog. This is a dog that could be for anybody. He has a laid-back personality but is all business in the field and will make a great family and home companion. I cannot wait to see where he ends up.
