Gunner's sire is NAGDC RU DC/AFC/3X NSTRA CH Gamble's Odyssey Fritz MH RD UT-2. What else can you say about Fritz? He's done it all.
Gunner's dam is NRC's Arabesque Kirby v Ziel JH. Kirby is a littermate to well-known sire FC/AFC Razorhaven's Revolution.
He was bred, picked out for us, and received early training by Rick Hopkins and Brenda Roe at http://www.walnuthillgsps.us/ I heartily recommend them as breeders and trainers.
Gunner is 26" tall and weighs 55 lbs in field trial condition.
Gunner's hips are OFA good, elbows OFA normal. His thyroid has been evaluted normal by private lab.
He is a very good-natured boy that lives with us in the house, rides in the back seat with the kids on trips, and is a much-requested visitor at the kids' soccer games.
His best quality is his nose. He quite simply makes scent where other dogs do not. He has a great gait and groundspeed and has gundog range. He is snappy, hits his birds hard and is very stylish on point. He loves water and has a very high prey drive.
Of course, it doesn't hurt that he is a such handsome devil ;) .
Gunner has sired three litters to date. The first litter was very uniform and some of the dogs have been evaluated as DC possibilities by deans of the DC GSP world. The second litter is just up and running around now. They look great so far. Very uniform and High tailed. The third litter, to a half-sister by Fritz, was born July 1st, but I've not heard much about them.
Please note that Gunner's dam was a liver. When bred to a liver, there is likely to be a number of liver pups.
Here are links to Gunner's first two litters:

2 http://www.gundogforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=58&t=22527 These pups went, literally, all over the country. The three that I have contact with are doing extremely well.
If you want to use Gunner, my terms are negotiable, but the following are what I look for.
- A negative current brucellosis test is required.
- The stud fee is the price of one puppy to be paid on a successful tie. I like to do three ties over three days to better the odds.
- If you provide a progesterone test indicating current ovulation and the breeding does not take, I will grant one "retry". If that doesn't take, I will refund the stud fee.
- If you don't do a progesterone test, you are taking your chances on the breeding taking.
Gunner is now back at home after spending the winter with Rick and finishing his Senior Hunter.
