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 at just turning 5 months old. She could not have shown more promise. From late Sept. – early Nov. 2018, this little pup out of Omiimii by Chippewa, achieved 100 grouse points, 21 grouse retrieves to hand and dozens of woodcock pointed and shot over her in her first very young season. Her second season has been outstanding and she continues to show that she has all the tools for a high quality grouse dog. Azaadi is a true dog and sticks birds hard and fast. Azaadi’s range is 0 – 90 yards, bouncing between 30 – 70 yards. She’s an intelligent, fiery little girl that hunts at a very quick pace. Super nose, incredible retriever and great stamina.

PAINT RIVER’S NAME’ LEVI

Name’ has had an incredible first season. She is from our November 2018, Missy by Duncan litter. She is Duncan with a sprinkle of Missy as I like to say. She’s a quick tracker, connected to the gun, superb nose, awesome retriever and simply an all-around as solid as they come grouse dog. Name’ hunts 20 to 70 yards and settles in the pocket around 30-40 yards. She weighs in the mid 30s. She will be an outstanding addition to the breeding program. If Mother Nature cooperates she will start her breeding career in our Fall 2020/Spring 2021 puppy season.


PAINT RIVER’S WAAWAATE LEVI

Waawaate is a highly intelligent pup from our November 2018, Widget by Duncan litter. She has had a solid first season learning that she’s not going to outsmart the ruffs in certain ways. She has a beautiful gait, a very forward hunter, hunts at a range of 30-70 yards on average. She is a tracker and has a very tenacious attitude. She’s a quality retriever. Waawaate weighs in at the mid 30s. Excited to see how her puppies will perform on the big stage in the Northwoods. Brains, toughness and nose is this kid in a nutshell.

PAINT RIVER’S JIIBAY LEVI

Jiibay is a super easy handling girl that is as stress-free in the grouse woods as they come. Superior nose, a boat load of caution and incredibly light-footed. She is very connected to the gun and hunts between 20-50 yards the bulk of the time. A real low key quality retriever that gets the job done. We are very excited that this little girl has made the cut into the program. If Mother Nature cooperates she will start her breeding career in our Fall 2020/Spring 2021 puppy season.
