Started/Older/Foster Program

 

 

Breeding Foster Program for Pink/Ben Puppy

 I occasionally place females in foster homes with breeding rights for me for several litters, and then when your obligation is finished, the foster family owns the dog and must spay her. You must be willing to deal with heat cycles. I would like her to be placed in a hunting home, a plus would be someone interested in running at junior hunt tests, or placed with an active family, but either way she MUST be a house dog I would like the Adopter to be someone who has another dog from me, and have another dog because I will need to take the dog for health certs, breeding, and whelping (which would be a period of 5-6 weeks) and in the past people have a difficult time allowing a single dog go for that long. The foster family must live within 100 miles from me,  preferably less, and must be experienced with raising hunting Labradors. You must not ever be interested in breeding the dog yourself, and there will be a contract defining the expectations and obligations of the agreement. When the contract is ended you will be expected to spay the dog as you will not have breeding rights. I will be very discriminating in their placement.  My foster homes must be real homes and families, and not just someone looking for a hunting dog or free dog or a broker. If you are familiar with whelping a litter you may be approved to whelp the litter, but you must be able to cope with changing conditions and have either a healthcare or animal husbandry background, have very good animal sense, and have access to a vet near by that takes call. If you live farther than 40 miles away it would be best if I whelp the litter because, I have access to reproduction veterinarians and it would be safer for the dog to be under their care in case complications arise.

 Repeat Breeding: Look for a hunting dog in this litter or affectionate pups that will also be excellent family companions, especially with children. Ben loves children and puppies, and passes that quality along with classic Labrador looks with nice heads. 

Ben was retrieving ducks in the water at 2 1/2 months and walking with them at hold.  He has great bone, handsome, and he also has a pleasing, happy personality. Ben has a lot of natural hunting ability with an outstanding nose, which some times gets him in trouble in competition, but he will not quit until he digs out the birds.  He naturally stays close hunting, and is quiet as his sister in the blind.  He is between 75-78# (I keep him slim as he gets older to help him be an excellent and agile breeder).  He is a square dog and looks like a Labrador should but with an all field background. Ben can breed and then gently play with a puppy afterwards, he loves kids, and is very extremely affectionate. He sires big litters and is the best choice for a stud for an all around family/hunting litter.

Ben is producing some very natural, birdy good looking retrievers just like him that make excellent hunters, HT dogs and family companions. See the 2008 News page.  He is linebred on CFC/CAFC Pachanga Magnum Force. His grandmother is my QAA bitch from Pachanga. Ben's siblings are very natural hunters. His father GRHRCH Gator Pt's Magnum Gentle Ben MH,QAA held 3 titles, passed 72 straight hunt tests, and was rated the #3 sire in HRC/UKC history when he was alive. Gentle Ben's full sister is the only FC/AFC chocolate female in AKC history and has produced many field champions. My Ben has sired Master hunters & Senior Hunters.

 Ben's grandmother is my QAA bitch from Pachanga. Ben's siblings are very natural hunters. His father GRHRCH Gator Pt's Magnum Gentle Ben MH,QAA held 3 titles, passed 72 straight hunt tests, and was rated the #3 sire in HRC/UKC history at the time. Gentle Ben's full sister is the first FC/AFC chocolate female in AKC history and has produced many field champions with many different studs. Ben is now about 75 pounds (winter weight has been 82#) has great bone, is very dark, and as you can see getting more handsome every year and he also has a pleasing, happy personality. He is a square dog and looks like a Labrador should but with an all field background.   Ben has a lot of natural hunting ability with an outstanding nose, which some times gets him in trouble in competition, but he will not quit until he digs out the birds.  He naturally stays close hunting, and is quiet as his sister in the blind.   Ben can breed and then gently play with a puppy afterwards, he loves kids, and is very extremely affectionate. Ben is siring some very natural, birdy good looking retrievers just like him that are great family dogs. See the News pages. Ben was trained for FT and HT. He is linebred on CFC/CAFC Pachanga Magnum Force.   

 Pink is a muscular, larger boned 82 pound female who is a very dark Chocolate, and she has a beautiful head. She is very sweet, mellow but loves to retrieve and is agile.  These pups would make perfect family companions and/or hunters. I chose to keep her when she was born because she was so outstanding.  These pups could be bigger because her Dad, AFC Tucker was 95#,
