CH Zodiaks Holy Terror SH RD "Tara" will be bred to CH Crystals Up Close 'n Personal NRD MH NA 1 NAVHDA UT prize 1 "Josh" in April.
Both Tara and Josh have hip, eye and heart cerfs, Josh is a well proven sire & Tara has several up and coming pups from her first breeding.(Jesse being one)
Josh:CHIC # 37811
Tara: OFFA http://www.offa.org/display.html?appnum=1292766#animal
I expect this breeding to produce top notch, dual quality, biddable hunting dogs and family companions.
They are both calm easy going housedogs and can go all day in the field, equally versatile on upland and waterfowl.
Taras pedigree includes DC Rugerheims Bit O' Bourbon - The all time top producing sire of dual champions in GSP history, he sired 6 duals and 60 CH's. Josh brings in DC Hillhavens Hustler, the 2nd all time top producing Dual Champion as well as Hall of fame 10X NSTRA CH Snips Ticked Off SH and Joshs' sire, DC/AFC/BISS Odysseys Sam Saint Max MH who was:
Dual Sire of the Year 2003; 2006; 2007
Field Trial Sire of the Year 2005; 2008
Hunt Test Sire of the Year 2003; 2005
Open Gun Dog of the Year 2000
and one of the few duals to ever win a Best in Specialty show.
Josh himself was nationally ranked in field trials in 2008. Tara has field trial points towards her dual championship, she completed her SH title in 4 straight passes. She is an extremely versatile dog and my go to grouse dog, extremely biddable and handles kindly. Tara is the main guide dog on a local hunting preserve.
