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 met and watch Mulligan run. A very impressive dog. I 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 Test's copetition. He is lovable, strong and a treat to have around.
Griz enjoy's an incredible genetic health screen record. He is CLEAR for every genetic test available for his breed.

Amber SHR Windy Ridge Ambrosia
Sea Duck Hunter - Northern Washington State SHR = Started Hunting Retriever
Amber weighs about 50 lbs. She is both driven in the field and a sweetheart in the house. She is smart, has a great nose, alert, persistent and focused. She loves the water, both for work and play. She has a beautiful dark golden coat that is true to her name.
I breed & buy pups based on pedigrees and usage. I'm a big proponent of proven hunting lines mixed with Field Trial or Hunt Test lines. Targeted COI < 10% for genetic diversity. In general, this cross produces a very athletic, harder driving retriever I.E. Griz. I have found that these litter types are interested, on/off switch, strong retrieving drive, multi dimensional usages, training backbone, biddable and make terrific companions.
Griz's Health Certificates and Xrays
OFA Radiograph Preliminary Hip & Elbows - November 2017
Evaluation: These radiographs are within normal grades of EXCELLENT. Final xrays will be taken August 2018.
Screenings for Hip Dysplasia are performed by a veterinarian with x-rays sent to OFA for grading and certification.
Excellent: Superior conformation; there is a deep-seated ball (femoral head) which fits tightly into a well-formed socket (acetabulum) with minimal joint space.
For elbow evaluations, there are no grades for a radiographically normal elbow. The only grades involved are for abnormal elbows with radiographic changes associated with secondary degenerative joint disease. Like the hip certification, the OFA will not certify a normal elbow until the dog is 2 years of age. The OFA also accepts preliminary elbow radiographs. To date, there are no long-term studies for preliminary elbow examinations like there are for hips; however, preliminary screening for elbows along with hips can also provide valuable information to the breeder.
