It is important to understand that PRA-pcrd carriers are healthy and never experience symptoms. It is perfectly ethical to breed PRA- carriers, 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!

Birddog's Man of Mystery   "Mojo"

FC Glenhoma's El Chupacabra X Birddog's Sweet Remembrance

We have big plans for this little guy! He is just a puppy, but is being raised to be a future stud of Bird Dog Labs. If all goes as planned, he should become available sometime in 2020.

Mojo is the result of literally years of research and planning! He has the most unique pedigree of any chocolate out there today!!!  You simply will not find another like him! His bloodlines are loaded with some of the best field trial dogs in history, yet you will not find any of the common chocolate dogs that are consistently found in working bred Labradors. We have researched well past 10 generations and did not find a single chocolate dog on either side of his pedigree, yet can trace the hidden chocolate factor back through Field Trial Hall of Fame Retrievers: NAFC FC AFC Dude's Double or Nothin' and 1961 & 1963 NFC CNFC AFC Del-Tone Colvin. 


Mojo's Pedigree:
http://www.huntinglabpedigree.com/pedigree.asp?id=114571


Mojo is just starting his formal training and will soon be entering professional training for either field trials and/or hunt tests. He has a strong natural retrieve, huge desire to please and is very intelligent. We are looking forward to a bright future with this handsome young man!
