He never missed a bird, he lived for his hunting.
When anyone saw Storm their first response was WOW! His color was not the only thing outstanding about him, his ability to hunt was superior. He could push though cattails like a bulldozer and come back wanting to go at it again.
He has more than 20 FT CH and IR FT CH in his pedigree.

New Stud to Diamond J
Rusty is from our retired Eastdale Inca and Kenmilquin Trooper Guy, call name Rocky. This boy showed amazing potential from the start and has not disappointed us. As a pup, he showed off his confidence, intelligence and willingness to please. He excelled in his training at Big Sky Kennels. This handsome boy was relentless, busting through cattails and heavy cover for a retrieve. He has loads of drive, is an exceptional learner and is a loving companion.
Call Name: Archie, Master Hunter
Sired by: IR Field Trial Champion Marranscar Blackcap
Dam: Massengreen Fireline of Altiquin
This young guy is very stylish, very brave in cover, takes long directions, works individually or as part of a team.
We are proud to have this handsome addition to our family. He is one of the few Chocolate British Labradors here in the US. The chocolate color scheme is a recessive gene and was not acknowledged in the gundog arena in the UK. In the recent decade this has been reconsidered and they are now able to compete and are being titled. The pedigree of the chocolates are a combination of hunting titles and also show titles as they have transitioned in popularity.
Retrieves all types of game and is an exciting dog to work with.
