Amos the Pug is the honorary gun dog of the crew, keeping up with his hunting housemates! He enjoys his role as "uncle Pug" to our Toller litters. As the clown of the pack, Amos has no problems with feathers and will happily carry around a wing. He delighted us in Spring 2019 when he retrieved his first chukar, and he entertained attendees of the April 2019 GWPCWI field trial when he decided he didn't want to give up a quail.

Amos lives life with an "every day is the best day ever" attitude that keeps us laughing!

Amos is co-bred and co-owned by David Cook and Brian Hooper of Hu-Chu Kennels in tandem with Kelly and her mom under their Brenich Pugs prefix. He finished his AKC show championship quickly at just a year old with three majors and was awarded Best Puppy at the 2017 PDCA National Specialty. He will dabble in training for performance now that he has completed his Grand Champion title. During the Spring 2020 "stay at home" order due to COVID-19 concerns, Amos completed his Trick Dog Novice (TKN) title via video submission! We are looking forward to his return to Nosework classes when life returns to normal...
