Native to Utah mountains, Indian Paintbrush grows wild throughout the Wasatch ranges. Its one of the first to emerge as the winter snows recede. The upper part of Indian paintbrush resembles a brush covered with bright dyes. It was often used among various tribes of Native Americans, hence the name - Indian paintbrush. Indie's beautiful coat reminded me of this beautiful, native wild flower.

Indie has an incredible field and hunting heritage loaded with talent, titles and usages. Despite all that, she is very playful and a huge tease. She inherited a powerful build from her mother and athleticism from her father. She has a strong desire to retrieve, hunt and find. Loves the water and is very loyal. With a low COI and good health records we are expecting a lot from this young dog.
