Thread: Which stud would you rather have a pup out of??

  1. #1

    Default Which stud would you rather have a pup out of??

    Hello RTF family,

    I am looking for some input. I am going to be breeding my bitch within the next year and am curious who you all would rather have a pup out of. i have 2 males in mind. Both are QAA, and running AA Stakes currently. All parties involved have all health clearances done (EIC/CNM Clear, hips Good and excellent, elbows normal, CERF normal). I train with these dogs every day and LOVE them both! Many of you also know them. It is possible I would consider a different stud, but I REALLY love these boys and have a maiden bitch. Both pedigrees would be stacked!! I already have a pup out of one of them and really like him and am very impressed. The other, has never been bred. Just trying to see if any of you think these pedigrees would be any good at all. Any and all input would be appreciated. Thanks everyone!!

    Dam's pedigree: http://huntinglabpedigree.com/pedigree.asp?id=57357

    Sire #1 Pete (never been bred, possibly yellow factored, DOB 4/20/11) http://huntinglabpedigree.com/pedigree.asp?id=59660

    Sire #2 Eddie: http://huntinglabpedigree.com/pedigree.asp?id=47727

    To make it easier, here are the pedigrees matched up.
    Kali x Pete pup:http://huntinglabpedigree.com/testpedigree.asp?id=2168
    Kali X Ed pup: http://huntinglabpedigree.com/testpedigree.asp?id=2167

    As a note- both my bitch and Eddie are very high dogs. I am slightly concerned that these pups would be too hot to handle. Thoughts???

    Pete would be my choice. I'm a Candlewoods fan and you would have it on both sides with that litter.

    What I missing? I only see one Candlewood in Pete's ped, way back. Are there others without the name? I have heard that Mary Howley is always ready to discuss pedigrees. See if you can get in touch. Then you would have some valuable advice.

    I like the Eddie pedigree with his sire Chopper to the RangerxKeila bitch. That combination is a VERY strong pedigree with very proven producers.

    What do "YOU" want to produce?
    Where is "YOUR" market?
    What are "YOUR" wants and Needs as a litter owner?

    Eddie --- Love Quilla and seek her out any time I can. Remember a lot of the pups will be female and there are few stronger producers right now than Tequilla Sunrise

    My vote would be for Pete as well. But hard to not go with the Ranger x Tequila Sunrise, too.

    The dame has Candlewood on her side also.
