Slash, as his name implies – is a ground-pounding gun dog with an active and swift ground game. He works the cover aggressively while quartering side to side with medium range and consistent check-in. He handles easily and is a joy to hunt behind. He’s quick to the point and staunch when he gets there.
He comes from a long line of proven champions and superior bird finders and this talent and style show through in his field performance and kennel manners. He’s the son of Silverado (Butch), son of 2011 NAFC Spanish Corrals Sundance Kid and FC Blew By Yet?. Other notables include NGDC FC San-Dee’s Blazing Shane, FC AFC Stevix Bulletproof Jill, NAFDC FC AFC Maxwell’s Blew By You II, HOF Nolan’s Last Bullet and numerous other field champions.
His dam, Special Hope (Abbie) is a long-legged big running bird dog from the old school lines of Dave Walker. She’s super-fast with a graceful ground eating stride and has produced three litters of outstanding hunting and field trial prospects. The many notables in her pedigree include HOF NFC Hi-Proof Rum Runner, FC AFC Chubasco II, FC AFC Shady’s Chick-N-Little.
Slash runs his own independent course with great determination and game drive. He has a fast and smooth gait and likes to hit the heavy cover with purpose in his pursuit of game.
He’s been trained and hunted over hard flying quail, chukar and pheasants and backs and retrieves naturally. He’s a super friendly dog and a pleasure to be around. He’ll make someone a great family companion and hunting partner for many years to come.
