Our Dams


EACH DAM HAS HER PEDIGREE,DESCRIPTION, AND SLIDESHOW


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 tracking type dog that’s a 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 up to 60 yards, averaging 25 – 50 yards. She produces a high percentage of good quality natural retrievers. She weighs in at 42 pounds. RETIRED.


PAINT RIVER’S PIXEL LEVI

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 up to 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 48 pounds. RETIRED.

Ina’amii is a fast little tracker out of Omiimii and Zhingos. She handles grouse terrific on the track and has shown excellent ability across the board.

Her range the majority of the time is 30-70 yards but usually under 50 yards. Can’t find a better retriever than this soft mouthed fanatic! At 30 pounds she’s shaping up to be a wonderful successor to her dam, Omiimii, in the breeding program.
