DualShot's High Times at Claddagh, JH NA1 DM DSA
When looking for a wirehair to join our crew, we agreed that two things took precedent over all other considerations: temperament and hunting ability. Potter surpasses our expectations in both! With her happy-go-lucky attitude, incredible intensity in the field, and correct close-fitting harsh coat, we are excited to see where she takes us! We are indebted to William and Courtney Bastian of Claddagh German Wirehaired Pointers for allowing Potter to join our household from theirs and to her breeder, Karla Hawkins, of Dual Shot German Wirehaired Pointers for her stamp of approval.
William and Courtney gave her a great start with a NAVDHA Natural Ability Prize 1-112 (perfect score) at just 17 weeks old, field trial points toward her FC title as a juvenile, Junior Hunter title, and wild bird hunting all before a year of age. Potter also has multiple points in the conformation ring.
During her 2019 "summer vacation" from bird work Potter tried out dock diving for the first time. In true Potter fashion, she gives her all every time she hits the dock! In less than two months of competing, Potter earned her Dock Senior and Dock Master titles as well as an invitation to NADD nationals for winning her division at a "qualifier" event in June 2019. She finished her Dock Senior Advanced title in Fall 2019, and she has begun work on her Dock Master Advanced title as well with a current personal best distance of 23'3"! In December 2019, Potter, Matt, and Kelly attended their first NADD National Championship, jumping 21'2" (Master) and finishing 77th out of 186 entrants.
Potter has OFA normal thyroid (2018), OFA normal cardiac (2019), OFA CAER normal eyes (2019), OFA normal patellas, OFA normal elbows, and OFA excellent hips.
