Genotype(s): Carries genes for Liver (chocolate), White spots, and Tan points. Ninja has the dominant black gene which is why she is not actually a black and tan with white! She does NOT carry yellow/red.

Ninja’s littermate “Jersey” was just a point or two away from her FC title when she unexpectedly passed away this spring. She has a couple of pups that are fast approaching their own FT titles.
Ninja’s  full sibling brother “Oscar” has sired several pups that are currently competing at the highest levels of Field trials as well, with one pup “Sammy” already obtaining his FC title.

Expecting black, liver, possibly white/black, white/liver with ticks, maybe roan? Please note that we do NOT take requests/deposits for specific colors since there is no way to predict color/sex/number of pups in a litter.

Pups are whelped and raised in my home with other dogs and children.  They are handled daily and exposed to loud and sudden noises from birth, exposed to various surfaces, terrain, water, gun fire, birds, retrieving, riding in crates, beginning housebreaking.  Starting at 4 wks of age, they will spend a few hours out of doors each day-depending on the weather and will start the housebreaking process by learning to use a doggie door. During this time they will be exposed to different terrain during exploring walks as well as different water locations, including creeks and ponds.  We will do some fun retrieves with paint rollers, bird wings, and dead quail and doves. If possible, we will also expose the pups to live pigeons.

Pups will be fed a high quality dog food with a minimum of 30% protein to 20%+ fat.  They will start on dry food starting at 4 wks.  Pups will not be fully weaned from dam until 6 wks of age unless she just won’t tolerate them (they have sharp teeth!).  Pups will be vaccinated with a 5-way vaccine at 7 1/2 wks of age.  They will receive their microchip right before leaving. We worm at least 2 times, even though I have never had a single pup in any litter ever have worms, mainly due to our worming protocol with our adult dogs. I will only be taking deposits on a limited number of pups (6) and I can take names only for those wanting on wait list in case the litter is large. 

Ground Delivery ONLY– I use with Kati Becker to ship door to door, usually within a single day.  She has a great reputation for delivering on time and with the dog happy and healthy.  If shipping- pup must be paid in full one week prior to shipping.  All paperwork must be done prior to shipping, including naming of pup on AKC, UKC (if applicable), and Micro Chip registration. You will be responsible for all shipping costs and arranging the shipping with the transport company.

New Owner can fly in/out with puppy as carry on! Nearest large airport is Omaha or Lincoln, smaller (closer) ones in Kearney or Grand Island, or even here in Ord if a private plane/small jet is used. New owner will need to make all of the necessary flight arrangements, including notifying breeder of arrangements so that I can get the necessary health certificate paperwork for the flight~ this is an extra $25 charge. Please bring your own crate or soft sided carry on pet carriers.
