Pepper

Pepper is a Black & White female from Leah the Dam & Royal Benny the Sire November of 2012. Pepper has been a very nice springer at home very friendly loving attention friendly with children and strangers. When in the field Pepper is a hard hunting true upland dog, she is long on drive and desire if there is a bird she will find it. Pepper quickly and thoroughly covers ground, quartering nicely she is amazing that she can keep up the hunting tempo for hours. When it comes to finding a downed bird her desire intensives, with Pepper's strong nose & speed it is rare for a downed bird to evade her. When top upland gundogs were unable to locate a running bird Pepper at a much younger age, has been successful at locate, catching & retrieving pheasants. Whether it be a water retrieve Pepper will eagerly swim for and retrieve birds, she is really becoming part of the A team when it comes to hunting.
