    Default FC/AFC-Tucked Away at River’s Edge-“Tucker”

    A friend recommended a very nice breeding between Tucker and a really well bred QAA bitch. I’ve heard very good things about the bitch. Just curious to how many of you guys have seen Tucker train/or compete. I do know that he has over 100 AA pts and will turn 8 in April. I believe he’s run in both NRC and NARC ‘18. Any info would be appreciated.

    Tucker is a one in a million. He got cut early last national but have a look at his finish/placement record leading up to the national. If you compare his to all others that ran, I bet not one comes close to him.
    It's always a crap shoot but pair him with a stellar bitch and take your chances.

    I am in a training group with Tucker’s handler and have seen him run in trials.. he is a very intelligent animal that is a great marker and runs with style.. a very very nice dog. His record speaks for itself.

    I own Tucker and he has qualified for the last 8 Nationals and has 143 AA points with 20 wins. He is throwing some nice pups. Not many are old enough to have to much to talk about. But the first breeding had 3 qualify for the first derby National two went and both were finalist. One had 43 derby points I think. One just ran his first Open at 3 and had the best marks in the 1st series but didn’t handle the hard poison bird water blind. I know because I judged it. But he looked impressive. Good luck with your choice

    Alex is a little biased , but it’s true. Tucker is the real deal. I’ve trained and run against him. Really enjoy training with him, not so much running against him.

    I have a 6 month old pup out of Tucker x Blue Heaven Coming in Hot (Emma). So far so good. Lots of drive and absolutely loves people.

    I have seen him compete, train and I have bred my QAA Emma to him twice. Both litters are very nice with several with FT pros and some from the first litter will be running derby soon. I will breed her to him for the third time this fall if Alex will allow me to. I kept a male from first litter that is with Brad and Cody at Mossy Pond and I have the female from second litter with me just starting FF and doing well. Pups are calm, smart and a lot of go and seem to mark really well.
