Gunn’s father’s lineage (FC AFC CFC CAFC Barracuda Blue MH) is quite impressive which is why we wanted to acquire his line and blend it to be one of ours. Gunn has earned his Hunting Retriever Champion – This is a UKC title that is earned by acquiring 100 points, 60 of which must be earned at the Finished level. OFA testing of elbows showed normal and hips good. EIC carrier. Feel free to check out his complete pedigree and results here.
