    If it is the one I just found..not much going on in the OFA department. Found some dogs, not all. They have a 2007 breeding with a bitch who according to OFA did NOT pass hips. No other mention of any other clearances. Cannot find any clearances behind a bitch they are breeding soon, including that bitch.

    Wanted to add those are the only things that raise a flag for me. But every breeder makes a decission they have to be comfortable with....On the flip side they are doing something with thier dogs as far as field work.
    If you are considering them as a breeder it is up to you to do your homework and research make a that choice.

    Yup....saw that too...and the yellow bitches they have are dudley's...or appear to be dudley's (without black pigment).

    They do put hunt titles on their dogs...which is good that they are out in the field...but...

    exactly..that "but" lingering out there is just enough for me to say no

    If you look at some of the pedigrees of the dogs there is a lot of choc to yellow breeding which would explain those dudleys.

    Here's another good article that explains the dudley:

    It is a "serious fault" in conformation showing, I believe. It may even be a disqualification... I'm not entirely sure on that one.
