CH GRCHF Gallant Thor Sur Le Delavan TAN
(GRCHF GRCH Vernon De L'Escarbot TAN X 2XGRCHF CH De La Ferme Sur Le Delavan TAN)
Thor is a wonderful hard running hunting dog with a friendly energetic temperament. He is social with man and dog alike. He is very friendly and is great with children, and puppies that Thor throws also have shown to have similar friendly dispositions. Thor was born a natural retriever and retrieves to hand without fail. He has hunted many species of upland game bird across the country including bobwhite quail, sharptail grouse, prarie chicken, sage grouse, ruff grouse, blue grouse, woodcock, pheasant and Hungarian partridge. He has been a pleasure to add to our kennel and was produced from two Grand Champion of the Field dogs and Grand Champion of Show and Champion of Show. His dam Lucy was also sired by a national best of breed. Thor became a UKC Grand Champion of the Field in December 2014. He has a solo wild bird win in Quincy, FL under judge Mark bird with handler Lori Hutwagner. He had a brace wild bird win in Quincy, FL under judge Larry Ellison, a brace wild bird win in Bloomfield, IA under judge Ken Teppel, a solo liberated win in Petersburg, IL under judge Bud Shipp, a brace liberated win in Petersburg, IL under judge Randy Meester and a liberated brace win at the 2013 CEB-US Nationals under judge Butch Nelson all run with handler Jackie Hutwagner. Just recently in an open breed UKC trial in North Dakota May 2015 Thor received another win and a reserve on liberated quail. Thor has the stamina and enthusiasm to hunt all day. He is a smooth hard running dog who selflessly and naturally works as a team with other dogs in the field.
