About Carp:

What's in a name? I work as a wildlife biologist at the Malheur NWR where we work diligently to eradicate invasive common carp. Carp are tenacious, hardy animals that thrive in the worst of conditions. We named our girl after this fish and she has not disappointed her namesake!

Carp is a snappy long legged Jackal of a wirehair. She has a nose that pulls her like string to birds. She loves to play fetch and hits the water with a massive leap and splash. Carp has a great offswitch and is a beloved house dog she is sweet and just wants to lay her head on your lap day or night. Carp is a very smart dog and often gets herself into trouble by figuring out how to open doors and windows. 

Carp hit the horseback field trial circuit in 2022 and ended up as the top ranked field trial wirehair in the nation in the puppy/derby division. She won the GWPCA National Futurity at the Prairie Wind Ranch in Payette Idaho one of the most rugged and steep field trial grounds in the United states. Carp saved up her best run of the year for that run and stayed far out front, hitting ridgetop and rock outcropping objectives finding multiple birds. Famed wirehair field trialers John Williams and Jeff Caulkins both looked at me and said that is gonna be a hard run to beat...and it was! Carp placed in all but one of the field trials she entered in she was a very consistent field trial competitor especially considering she was mostly running against other breeds. 

Carp's dam Hattie is one of the best dogs we have produced an easy prize one Utility dog with and incredible tracking ability. Carp is very much like her mother. Carp's Sire Ozzy comes from a long line of VC wirehairs from Top Shelf Kennels in North Dakota. Ozzy brings a lot of cooperation to BBK lines and it is very evident in carp. 

Carp is training to run her utility test in summer of 2023 and if successful will likely join the BBK breeding team in 2023 or 2024. We hope to continue to run her in field trials after she is fully broke out.
