Our Dams


PAINT RIVER’S WIDGET LEVI

Widget is one of the most incredibly intelligent dogs I’ve been around with one of the most emotional personalities, which has both its pluses and minuses. Around the home, she is known as my dog-wife. Widget is a serious talker, in my experience a sign of high intelligence. She’s a dominant girl with a huge ego. Widget’s hunting abilities are second to none— with a superior nose, incredible staunchness, she is a very cautious cold nosed cat-like hunter in the grouse woods. She is an exceptional natural honoring dog. She is one of the greatest grouse dogs I’ve seen in my hundreds of dogs in the woods. She checks in often and hunts for the gun beautifully at a nice slow steady pace. Widget’s range is 0 – 60 yards, averaging 25 – 50 yards. She produces a high percentage of good quality natural retrievers. She weighs in at 42 pounds.


PAINT RIVER’S PIXEL LEVI

Pixel is a PRL veteran. She’s a very quiet natured dog with a dominant presence. She’s a fabulous grouse dog— easy handling, hunts at a beautiful lope and checks in often. She’s a very true dog, always has been. If she’s on point a bird will be produced 95% of the time. She’s is a highly reliable hot nosed pointer. She’s most often not far but sometimes you have to walk to her point a bit. Pixel’s range is 0 – 100 yards, averaging 40 – 70 yards.  Incredibly quick to honor her brace mate in the the grouse woods. Fantastic at locating wounded birds over any distance. I refer to her as my classic, no frills, get the job done setter. Pixel has the highest percentage of highest quality pups (our bar is very high) as a producer in PRL breeding history across being paired with three different sires thus far. Both her male and female offspring are highly consistent. She produces a high percentage of good quality natural retrievers. Pixel weighs in as my largest female, at 47 pounds.


PAINT RIVER’S OMIIMII LEVI

Omiimii is a grouse finding machine. She hunts like a cat as much as any I’ve ever seen. She has an average nose but my most stealthy tracker that has incredible focus and over the years has trailed hard running ruffed grouse over hundreds of yards into a beautiful point for the perfect shot opportunity.  Omiimii is very cautious in the grouse woods with incredible natural staunchness. Omiimii naturally honors. This little girl is a fantastic grouse dog. She checks in often and hunts for the gun beautifully in a quick and slow manner. Omiimii’s range is 0 – 50 yards (first season range was up to 90 yards), averaging 20 – 40 yards. She is my most heat tolerant girl of the entire pack. She has produced the very best natural retrievers PRL has produced to date. Every friend and client that has hunted over all my dogs all favor Omiimii in the grouse woods. She is such a fun dog to hunt behind. Omiimii weighs in at 30 pounds.


PAINT RIVER’S MISSY LEVI

Missy is a spectacular grouse dog. She has an exceptional nose, naturally points, backs, and retrieves. Missy’s range is 0 – 60 yards, averaging 20 – 40 yards. She checks in every couple minutes; if ever out of sight in the first place and spot on hunts for the gun. She’s unbelievably light on her feet. Missy’s hunt style is more cat-like and may stalk and point in closer to the bird to set up a shot opportunity. Missy is a calm, quiet, sweet girl that doesn’t care in the least about social status among other dogs. Just a real gentle nature about her. Missy has a very soft mouth when handling birds. Missy weighs in at 37 pounds.


PAINT RIVER’S STELLA LEVI

Stella is a phenomenal grouse dog. Quality nose, naturally points, backs, and retrieves. Stella’s range is 0 – 75 yards, averaging 30 – 50 yards. She checks in every few minutes and hunts for the gun nicely. She has a beautiful gait and moves smooth through the grouse woods. A very true dog, if she goes on point the bird is usually going to flush soon thereafter.   Stella has a very soft mouth when handling birds. Just a pleasure in every respect. Stella is a calm, quiet, sweet girl that doesn’t care in the least about social status among other dogs. Stella weighs in at 38 pounds.


PAINT RIVER’S AZAADI LEVI

Azaadi entered her first grouse season this fall at just turning 5 months old. She could not have shown more promise. From late Sept. – early Nov. this little pup out of our Royals Litter, Omiimii by Chippewa (4/27/18), achieved 100 grouse points, 21 grouse retrieves to hand and dozens of woodcock pointed and shot over her as well. Azaadi has an incredible nose and is really learning well how to work these crafty birds with all of her exposure. Solid pointer and amazing retriever. She’s increasingly learning to work these running ruffs with quality paced tracking.  Azaadi’s range is 0 – 90 yards, averaging 40 – 60 yards, in her first season, still at only just 7 months old. She’s an intelligent, fiery little girl that we hope to continue to see big things out of. Azaadi weighs in at 34 pounds. We hope to add Azaadi to the breeding program in either spring or fall of 2020.
