"Guide" was the sire of our most recent litter. He is owned by Richard Spike. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to introduce Guide's line to our breeding program. He is the son of FC AFC Way-da-go Call of the Wild. Guide earned his AKC Junior Hunter title at nine months old. At that time, he was doing doubles along with a blind retrieve. Personality wise, Guide is like a teddy bear around people and other dogs. "Grace" was the mother of our most recent litter. She is the daughter of Hillview's Reuben James JH & our very own "Onyx", the daughter of NFC FC AFC Five Star General Patton. Grace turns heads with both her confirmation and calm, friendly disposition. She is a certified therapy dog & is working daily with students in our primary school. Because of her laid back, easy going personality, she has been the dog of choice for our son's 4-H project. This was Grace's last litter, but we kept a pup from this litter to continue this line.
