I was looking back over your "wish-list" for a dog, and I can tell you that my dog Dutch is exactly what you have described, except he is not yellow. BUT, he is yellow factored. He is being studded out twice this month. If you have an interest in one of his pups, I can put you in touch with the 2 breeders.
Dutch is "rookie - amateur trained". My first retriever to train. HRCH & MH at 2 yrs. 5 straight masters & 4 straight finished. Campaigned only in spring. Full time guide dog in season. Over 2100 birds (www.goosehuntinginc.com). And as good of a dog in the house as in the field.
