About this Litter
Allison and Dan met Hank at Gun Dog Nationals in 2015. After seeing him run, we knew he was a dog we really liked. Seeing his pedigree made the decision to breed to him easy. What was more difficult was making this breeding happen with Annie in Ohio and Hank in Colorado. Thankfully we were able to make arrangements with Hank's owner Jeff Hoskins and complete this cross-country breeding. We couldn't be more excited for these puppies.
This breeding is a very nice line breeding with HOF NFC FC AFC Bean’s Blaze behind both dogs and appearing three times on the pedigree. Both Annie and Hank are big running shooting dogs who started winning young and earned their Field Champion and Amateur Field Champion titles at the age of four. Hank brings a big, fast ground race and long stride that he uses to cross the prairies and deserts of Kansas, Colorado and New Mexico. He points high and tight with lots of style. Hank has that kind Brittany temperament we love. Annie is a big running shooting dog with a snappy ground race, long nose and beautiful style. We expect these pups to run big in the field but relax comfortably on the couch at the end of the day.
The litter will be American Kennel Club (AKC) and American Field (AF) registered and ABC Futurity nominated.
Here's what we expect from these pups:
- High energy bird dogs with a fast ground race and the stamina to go all day
- Quality conformation with the structure to run fast and far
- Intelligence and instinct to locate birds, get them pinned and hold them
- Desire to learn what is asked of them and do it every time
These two dogs are great dogs in the house and in the field and we expect the pups to be fast, big running, hard hitting gun dogs.

"Annie" FC AFC High Hopes Little Ann
Annie is our biggest winning dog in the field and one of our favorite dogs to have in the house. In the field, Annie has a snappy run, long nose and intense point. At home, she loves attention but is also happy to curl up on the couch and take a nap. After being named the East Central Gun Dog of the Year in 2011, Annie took the spring of 2012 off to whelp her first litter of puppies, including our Luke and Daisy. She returned to the field trial circuit in the Fall of 2012 and quickly qualified for Gun Dog Nationals. Annie qualified for nationals again in 2013 and was posted in the 2013 Amateur Gun Dog Championship. We decided to retire her after that run and let her focus on being a hunting dog and mom. Annie let us know pretty quickly, however, that retirement wasn't in her plans. Shortly after raising her second litter of puppies in 2015 (a breeding to DC AFC Grand Junction Jake that produced our Penny) Annie again qualified for Nationals and again took second place in the Amateur Gun Dog Championship. This amazing little dog just keeps getting it done and never ceases to amaze us with her intelligence and strength.

This pedigree is an outcross of two exceptional dogs with amazing pedigrees. The parents and grandparents all earned at least an AFC title. HOF NFC FC AFC Bean’s Blaze appears behind both dogs and shows three times on the pedigree. We expect puppies with lots of point and style with the conformation and desire to run big and fast.
