I know one person who is waiting for one of those pups....to say she was excited about the litter would be a complete and total understatement!Angie B said:Contact DRAKEHAVEN on this board. His canadian AFC was bred to Pow and is due anyday.... There's only 5 spoken for so far.
AMEN Labman !!!labman52738 said:Why not look for a litter out of a QAA, MHR, HRCH, or MH titled female? You can get just as good of a quality puppy, for a fraction of the cost. Just do the research on both the parents and make an educated decision. Just having two FC/ AFC titled parents, doesn't mean that you have the most genetically clean puppy. You should be able to find a very competetive, genetically clean puppy out of an FC/ AFC titled sire and a top level hunt test titled female for somewhere between $700 and $1500, with some being a little cheaper, some being a little more. Good luck with finding the right puppy for your needs.
This is exactly how I chose my black female. I actually had 2nd pick for a chocolate female, which turned out there was only one. So the breeder gave me first shot at a black female, which he actually picked out for me. I wasn't real concered about color, this was the breeding that I wanted, and I am happy with the dog that I got.2tall said:The way I located the pup I bought was first to decide which sire. I looked at a TON of web sites, chose my favorite and called the owner. I asked her what breedings had taken place recently, and ended up with a couple of nice choices. I was not able to get one out of a titled dam, but she had titles on most of her siblings and a pedigree that stood on its own with actually more FC/AFC's on her side of the paper! Call the stud owners, they are proud of their dogs and willing to share information.
I'm getting one and I can't wait!!! :wink:FOM said:I know one person who is waiting for one of those pups....to say she was excited about the litter would be a complete and total understatement!Angie B said:Contact DRAKEHAVEN on this board.

I've got two of them, one just over a year old, and the other just coming up on a year. While they've made the earlier cuts I wonder if they'll be players. Lots of questions remain, they are so very far from all age work. Both are out of titled parents. I hope one of them turns out to be an all age player.I know people right now who are sitting with pups out of FC-AFC breedings that they do not feel will be competitive.
