ABOUT LIBBY

 

​Libby is a beautiful orange & white roan AKC and UKC registered female with a powerful, cobby, and muscular build. She is unique in that she is at the top end for size in the breed standard which is a desired trait for a breeding female. Her dam is a Grand Champion of the Field and her sire is a titled field trial dog that is currently a daily use hunting dog at a quail hunting plantation in Georgia. Her 3 generation pedigree is outstanding and represents a new high quality line not heavily bred in the United States. Libby was confirmed and rated "C1 Excellent" under French expert conformation judge Jean-Francois Maillett and American expert conformation judge Robert Olson. Her hips were certified "Good" at 25 months of age by the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) and she has been tested and certified by Animal Genetics as a non Ay gene carrier. Libby aggressively covers the upland terrain and is a close worker for the foot hunter. She is the fastest of our dogs. She has a nice quality of checking in with her handler for direction and which is pleasant to hunt behind. She is an outstanding natural retriever to hand (on land and from water). Libby especially has an affinity for water. She is a fearless dock jumper and a powerful swimmer proving to be an invaluable hunting partner in the duck blind. She has competed in both wild bird and liberated bird field trials earning her TAN (test of natural ability) and WRT (water retrieval test) titles proving her natural pointing ability and retrieving ability from water. Libby is one of the Epagneul Bretons showcased on Scott Linden's Wingshooting USA television show airing nationwide on multiple cable networks in August 2017 and also in a 2nd episode the summer of 2018. Libby is also a featured EB being the main article cover picture in the March/April/May 2018 issue of Gun Dog Magazine. Besides being an outstanding gun dog Libby is a wonderful indoor family dog with a loving and loyal temperament. In the home you will find her cuddled up on the couch with a family member. She will sleep until noon if you allow her, but put her in the field and she turns it on as a prairie dynamo. She truly is a prime representation of the Epagneul Breton gun dog and we are excited for her future contribution to the Epagneul Breton breed in the United States.
