    I agree with kerrybrooks, I have a Vince x Jazz daughter.
    Another qualitly Kennel is Deep Run Farms outside of DC,
    They have 3 males that are Ch/MH, Phyillis and Jack run a Grade A operation

    If you really dead set on chocolates, Check out Cresthill Kennels, they are a bit pricey but it is an investment for 12-15 years
    Hope this helps but these are breeders in my neck of the woods

    Why not go back to the kennel you got your boy from? Or post your dogs pedigree (or parents names) so we can point you in that direction.

    You've gotten some good suggestions there. If indeed you are looking for chocolate, it'd be good to get on a breeder's wait list now if your part of the country is like mine. There are not that many "all arounder" type breeders out there, and my chocolates seem to have long wait lists especially. I already have at least 8 waiting for a litter that won't be bred until January... You'd think chocolate was the new black in the NW-- Best of luck! Anne

    The look you are wanting to find is going to be difficult I was in the same boat not too long ago! Its disappointing.... anywho I would recommend you talking to Amy Avery out in NC. I just got my pup from her (featured in my avatar) she should develop more of the looks you were describing (Sugar her mom was 80lbs). She also has a litter due soon with a part english sire. She offers all three colors, well worth a look in my opinion. http://www.akskennels.net/id1.html

    Love my blacks too, Billie!!!! But I do like a nice looking chocolate as well, and find the coats are probably the best of the bunch. Yellow is last on my list...

    I don't know how hard you hunt but you mention divers in the gulf, that's going to require some drive. So do you want/need a ton of drive? Do you want/need the off switch around the house to be off off or just kind of off? my definition of blocky head and yours may be completely different. Many hardcore field trial pedigree dogs fit my idea of great looks but you may want one that looks like a solid colored Rottweiler so give a bit more description and some pics of dogs you like maybe?

    This is my Chilbrook Lone Ranger pup, he was not yet a year old in this pic. He definitely has a show look, but he is not a plodder. He is a fast, hard driving dog. He looks like a body builder with all his muscles now that he is mature.

    This is my girl, Tally. Show bred dam though never shown, by a Ch/MH QAA sire

    And my boy, Deacon. Same mother, by a Ch/MH

    IMG_0623b.jpg

    Deacon has his SH and is an active HRD dog (human remains detection) with me as his handler, with the state of Virginia. Tally is a few years younger, but will be doing the same as her brother by next year.

    You can find the dual bred, as there is more than one breeder out there that likes the classic looks as well as the classic drive. Most are small time breeders that know what they want and breed only occasionally.
