PAINT RIVER’S DUNCAN LEVI
Duncan is truly an amazing bird dog. Conditioning and exposure to birds is all this dog has needed to be a dream hunting companion. Each grouse season in the U.P. of Michigan he has proven to be what I refer to as—”A go-to dog.” Duncan naturally points, honors, tracks, circles running birds and retrieves birds, has tremendous stamina, hunting hours everyday and his hunting range is under foot up to 70 yards out on average. Duncan checks in with me naturally on his own every two to five minutes. Duncan is a hard charging bird dog seeking scent but the moment he gets the slightest whiff of bird scent he shows amazing cautiousness. His sense of smell is outstanding! I just love watching this dog work! He is intelligent, sweet as can be, high drive in the grouse woods and a lovely couch potato in the house. His PennHip ratings are excellent with D.I.’s (distraction index) at .42 and .45! Duncan weighs 42 pounds. Paint River has truly struck gold in this stud and he is certainly a cornerstone of our breeding program. He sired many litters and his offspring have proven to be fantastic natural hunters on all upland game species arcoss the United States.
