Sire of 3 Navhda NA Breeder Award Litters
Axel is a complete bird dog. He has great bird sense and is a tireless worker in the field. He received a NAVHDA Utility Prize 1 (195) in September 2008 at 2.5 years old. He then went on to pass the 2009 NAVHDA Invitational and earn the Versatile Champion title at 3.5 years old. His parents are also both NAVHDA Versatile Champions. Axel has a knack for finding birds and has been staunch from day one. His nose is one of the best I have ever seen. Axel's duck searches are amazing to watch. He tears apart a pond from bank to bank and everywhere in between. Axel has all the qualities we look for in a versatile hunting companion.
Axel is very comfortable in the duck blind and has made some nice retrieves in his young career. He has shown great promise in the grouse woods nailing down some wiley Ohio grouse and woodcock.
Axel's greatest attribute is his personality. He is easy to train and a fun dog to be around. He is never cross with other dogs and is great with my kids. He has a great balance of cooperation and drive.
Axel is RETIRED from Breeding.

She completed her AKC Master Hunter in the Fall of 2014.

Fair Fields Gunner
Gunner is an exceptional example of a Hustler Bred versatile hunting companion. He has the most desire to please and most pleasant personality we have ever seen in a Shorthair. He has his mother's desire for birds and great nose. His pedigree brings together two of the best producers of recent memory, VC Jacob vd Westwind MH and Jaegerof's Sir Henry Higgins MH. We expect great things from Gunner in the field and marsh, but most importantly he has become an invaluable member of our family.
