Top Gun Jake MH UT Prize I – Retired
OFA: Hip Certified – Good
Jake’s trial, testing and hunting days are over with many memories and rewarding days in both the field and duck blinds. His offspring earned Jake the “2006 GSPCA Hunt Test Sire of the Year” for the breed and gained national recognition for our kennel business.
Jake’s career was ended 2 points short of his AKC Amateur Field Championship (AFC) title, and only 1 point needed for his National Shoot-to-Retrieve Championship. Jake was a large part of the success and notoriety of our kennel. His litter was the foundation on which we have built our line due to the many positive traits they have produced into their offspring.
We may never own another Jake in our lifetimes, but we will follow the offspring he has generated with the confidence Jake has provided us the past 6 years! Jake’s ability to learn, differentiate and compete in the many different games we have played in, and yet be one of the greatest hunting dogs we have ever walked behind wild bird hunting in all parts of this country, will truly be missed. Jake’s offspring have raised the bar in this breed for trainability, natural hunting instincts, intense style and desire to find game with excellent “bird sense.”
Jake has provided us with the tools we need to improve this breed in many generations to come. Many people are still talking about Jake, his offspring and his records. We are very blessed to have owned such a great hunting and family companion.
