    Gradys Marsh Ranger. His sire is Grady and the dam is Quiks March Hurricane MH. Hes better bred than me He is 2.5yo, Ive had him since April, I got him from a trainer that washed him out. Long story, as a pup he was being aired out at a hotel one nite when something spooked him, he ran into traffic got hit and the ran off. He was lost for about a month, when the trainer got him back and worked with him, he didnt think he would make it in the FT/HT world.
    He came to my family very timid, but we have loved on him and he has gotten so much better in that regard. He already had basic OB. He has alot of drive and desire, loves to retrieve and Im doing everything I can but I cant get him nearly to his potential. He has been alot of fun a great pet,companion and buddy.

    and for you to take the time to take a chance with him, re-acclimate him and begin some training is to be commended. Good luck and hope you have many years of fun and great hunts together.
