Hunter is now available for stud to approved females.
Located in Bemidji, Minnesota

Hunter is a big, handsome 78 pound yellow male. He is out of our 2014 litter between FC Crow Rivers Lucky to the Max and Birddog's Amazing Grace.


Hunter is a very gentle boy that has one of the best natural "off switches" we've ever seen in such a young dog. He is extremely affectionate and very mild mannered. Hunter absolutely adores the puppies and has become one of our top young puppy socializers. In the field he is a totally different dog. He has a huge desire to work and just doesn't stop! He is extremely smart and catches on to new things very quickly.

It is important to understand that PRA-pcrd carriers are healthy and never experience symptoms. It is perfectly ethical to breed PRA- carries, as long as they are only bred with dogs that are tested PRA-clear. When those guidelines are strictly followed there is no chance of producing affected puppies. We are responsible breeders and will take all necessary precautions to never produce an affected puppy. This is a Lifetime Guarantee!
