Nubbin' produces great companion Brittanys and incredible field dogs with tons of natural ability.  He is in standard at 20 1/4", 40 pounds.

American Brittany "Chief's Nubbin' Ridge Runner", aka "Nubbin' " DNA#V271152, AVID Microchipped, Health Tests done Annually, X-rays on file reviewed by 3 Veterinarians - good hips - no evidence of dysplasia, his mother and father OFA Good.  Serious inquiries are welcome.  Feel free to review his health check-ups and x-rays at the Coleman Vet Clinic, Coleman, Texas.

Natural pointer/backer/retriever to hand since age 5 months.  Started guiding hunts with him after first 'test' afield at 5 months of age.

We have never had a puppy come back to us from Nubbin'.  He produces solid bird dogs that are biddable and natural pointers, honor, and retrieve.  Nubbin' produces beautiful bird dogs that are like a lamb in the house and awesome in the field.  Nubbin' is now in his prime (Age 11 as of 2011).  Nubbin' is extremely athletic in build and produces big running pups that also hunt close in tight cover.  Because he is my personal gun dog, he does not trial himself, he is an unknown in the trial community except that those folks are seeing his progeny and grand progeny in AKC field trials & hunt tests, NSTRA, American Field, NAVDHA and more.  Though our dogs go only to hunting families, several families recognized their pups talent and dabbled in various venues of which several have titles (all-age, gun dog, hunt tests, NAVDHA, show, etc.)!

Nubbin' has proven to be a solid stud dog with no known genetic defects up front or in the last 3 generations of his ancestry.  He has studded multiple litters and has PROVEN his prepotency.  Nubbin' is most definitely an extraordinary expresser of the Brittany breed. 

Keeping in mind that 99 percent of Dave's clients are hunters, the few who have trialed have accomplished the following:

While the following achievements are awesome, Nubbin's number one attribute are the dozens of fine hunting companions he has produced!  That is top priority to us!

Uncle of R/U American Field Champion "Tonk Valley Runaway Red" (won at 20 months of age)

We hunt with Nubbin' afoot and from our Polaris Ranger Utility ATV/ truck/horses.  He will hunt close or open up big (1/2 mile plus), just let him hunt to cover and gun independently and he will put you in birds, that's for sure.

Nubbin' is taken to Montana every year.  Nubbin runs hard and ranges big in wide open prairie country.

At age 11, Nubbin' is retired except for bird hunts with Dave!

Nubbin' has top quality proven hunting lines as well as field trial dogs throughout his pedigree, all of whom are now deceased.  His foundation lines include Hall of Fame (HOF) Ban-Dee, HOF Nolan's Last Bullet, HOF Beans Blaze, and HOF Microdot.

If you want your female to be considered, please send us a 5 generation pedigree of your female.  Frozen semen A.I. only to pre-approved bitches.

Buckshot

*Texas American Field sanctioned Nat'l Bird Hunters Assoc. R/U Puppy of the Year "Chief's Reload" aka Buckshot.

Buckshot is out of FC/R.U. American Field Ch, TX Coastal Field Dog of the Year, Chief's Gunner.  Gunner was first and foremost a hunting dog for a foot handling owner from age 6 months on.  After much encouragement, his owner Doug A., allowed him to be trialed.  In just 2 years he had earned titles and was retired by his owner from trialing to return to hunting at age 4!!!  'Gunner' is the son of 'NUBBIN'.

Gunner's influence on Buckshot was evident from day one.  He naturally wants to run to the front and has a superb nose much like his daddy 'Gunner' and granddaddy 'Nubbin'. 

By age 3 (this year), he has excelled hunting wild pheasant, grouse, quail and partridge.

Buckshot has a very pleasant demeanor and is very active in the field.  He simply does not quit.

Buckshot's mom comes from strong hunting and field lines that date back to Ban-Dee, which is consistent with my breeding program, a perfect fit!

Add some of Buckshot's blood to your lines, especially if your lines date way back to Ban-Dee, Bean's Blaze, Count Geoffrey, Microdot, Nolan's Last Bullet and others (these dogs are all deceased but descendents mix very, very well.
