    I would double check with Bill himself on that. George and JJ are the real deal. I am not that familiar with George's get. JJ produces good marking dogs. The ones I have seen need to be trained and are smart. So no heavy hands to push them. I have seen both run many times.

    I am not sure on the possibility to breed to either Shaq or George which are both amazing dogs and great options. With that said JJ would be a great option as well for a Shaq son. My JJ pup is flat out going to be one of the best dogs I have in my life granted she has great bitch lines as well she definitely will not be my last out of him if I can help it. As stated above definitely a dog that needs to be trained and smart, also in her case she handles pressure really well definitely not a soft dog. She is an extremely hard working dog that has a positive attitude and puts forth a great amount of effort no matter the task.

    I have a 5 year old MH Shaq pup (my avatar). Nicest, sweetest, friendliest disposition in the house, around other dogs, kids, but in the field, he’s all business and ready to work. Team player, smart, alert, requires minimal pressure, fast. And did I mention he’s quite handsome! I would imagine if there are any straws remaining, they would be very limited.

    That hasn't stopped anyone from breeding to Slider.

    Mark Henry is usually the contact for breeding to Bill's dogs.

    A friend tried to get a straw for his 9 year old FC bitch but was denied. I doubt you will be successful; I would probably look for other options.

    I got shut down on a 40+pt, 2 x National AM Qualifier, 5.5 y/o AFC female. I just don't think he has very much at all. But you can get all the Tuck 'N Roll stuff you want

    I would bet there's just not that much left and the owner is keeping it for his own uses. That's usually the case with limited stock. Been turned down by several of them, who weren't ready for a new pup; at different times, but then when the owner is ready for a new dog amazingly they get released, might be on paper lesser a female (then what some have offered already); but something the owner really wants.

    Still if someone has limited stock, it might be worthwhile to look into a few reproduction laboratories as they are doing studies on ways to separate out a stored frozen straw, into multiple straws and seem to be having pretty good success. Might be worth the investment.
