GROUSE RIDGE KRYPTO
GOODGOING WABASHA “CHIEF” is an exciting young prospect by Louie and Annie. Both of these dogs have proven to be great producers over the several litters they have each had. We are looking for Chief to follow in their steps. He will start siring litters in the summer of 2007. Chief is a solid built and athletic dog. He has great desire to work and find birds, along with incredible style. Currently Chief is in Jerry Kolter’s string and is being developed to compete in cover dog trials on grouse and woodcock. He has had extensive experience on Texas Quail, North Dakota Sharptails and Wisconsin Grouse. He is showing great potential and looks to have a future as a competitive trial dog.
GOODGOING LOUIE has been a great addition to our breeding program. He has a top-flight pedigree, while possessing a warm personality and an easy handling style. His litters are looking very nice in the way of personality and natural ability and it is even more exciting to see how well they are developing into fine young bird dogs.
