We Purchased Big B from Dr. Trevor Ferguson DVM. owner of Canyon Creek Kennels in Missoula Montana. Trevor is our primary vet for all of our dogs and who we use for AI breedings.
Big B has long legs and a strong muscular build. He has an ideal coat for hunting that is dense and harsh. He is an incredibly sweet dog with a very happy temperament and the strongest off-switch of any wirehair puppy we have ever had.
Big B spent his first hunting season chasing prairie birds in Montana and North Dakota and had a great first season. During his very first hunt on September 1st at only 5 months old he found, pointed, and retrieved a Hungarian partridge. He has a lot of natural point and massive run that worked well in the prairies, and he would pound through cattails to pin elusive roosters. In open country he is consistently pushing to the farthest ridges and has fun doing it. Big B paralyzes birds and has done fantastic on quail, huns and chukar in Oregon during his second season.
Big B hit the horseback field trial circuit in 2022 with a vengeance. He was ranked as the #2 puppy/derby dog in the national GWPCA rankings, narrowly missing the top spot. He won the GWPCA National Derby Classic and took 3rd in the National Field Futurity. We will never forget watching him lap the course on the Prairie Wind Ranch, at one of the most difficult and steep field trial grounds in the United States.
Jill, a first-time handler, handled Big B in his Natural Ability test at only 5 months old. While he didn’t score his best (P3), we decided not to re-run him and focus on hunting and field trials. He still has his moments lacking cooperation, but he loves retrieving and water as he has matured.
In the AKC show ring, he dominated every show he entered winning 4 majors in a row. We hope to finish him this spring.
Big B’s sire Gus is the top producing AKC field stud in all history. He was a dual champion and has produced more FC, AFC, MH puppies than any other wirehair in history. His dam is GCH CH Claddagh Ring it in Sula NA1 UT2 a very talented dog that comes from a mixture of famous field trial dogs from Backwoods kennel and some nice UK imports including Sula's mother Karmin who is the only VC DC wirehair in history of the breed.
