History: Griz was born on Decatur Island, WA. He's the son of Semper Cooper's Mulligan CCA***. A very successful Field Trial competitor. I had the opportunity to meet and watch Mulligan run - a very impressive dog. I was determined that if the right situation came along, we'd pick one out. The right opportunity presented itself. Griz comes from a history of hunters and titled field performers.
Griz has been amateur and professionally trained in upland hunting and Hunt Tests competitions. He is lovable, strong and a treat to have around.
