Litter News! 

Our Patriotic themed litter from Libby (Tucson x Bella) x Vader (Rumor x Hero) from Flying High K9s in Michigan was born July 4, 2019. Justice- AVAILABLE (more information below), Abe (living in IA now called Ryuk), Teddy (living in Canada- now called River), Alli (Staying with us!), Rutherford (staying with us), and Lyndon (living in LA - now Quest). The pup's pedigree can be found here. These pups are proving to be intelligent, athletic and versatile with great noses and a desire to work. Alli, Justice, and Rutherford all are showing great bird and retrieving drive. I'm excited to keep working them and looking forward to hunting upland and waterfowl. 


We have no plans to breed in 2020 as we will busy training and competing with our dogs.
