Feather is a delicate agile girl with a bit of a tough "tom boy" side that we just adore! She is a talented, affectionate, beautiful and intelligent dog. There is not a mean bone her in fit little body, earning her the nick-name "Sweet." By the age of 4 years old, Feather has already had a successful career in the field. We are hopeful she will be a great producer in our breeding program beginning in 2015 and after a bried break for puppies, we intend to continue her hunt test and qualifying trial resume as well as begin agility trials - following int he footsteps of her dam. 

Derby Jam at 16 mos. MH title at 2.5 years. Qual 4th at 3.5 years.... QAA with a win 20 days past her 4th birthday and the 4th qual she ever ran...... much much more to come! 

Feather earned a JAM her very 1st weekend of competition. 16 months of age.

 

Feather has proven to be a very fast learner and we had great success and much fun during her "young dog" career. This girl is a 50 lb. package of 'GO GO GO' ...........
