About Olive

Olive is a product of Birdsboro. She’s a lovely, feminine girl and looks a lot like her half-sister, Augie! She has a stellar pedigree of dual purpose (show-field) dogs and is just an awesome dog in every sense. Guess that is what happens when you breed two great parents. We are very excited about this little girl’s potential!

Olive the Show Dog

Olive will begin her show career in 2011. We show our dogs on a limited basis, as we also have to make time for their hunting careers (and having young kids). Olive has a moderate amount of substance, is a very correct size we believe for a dual-purpose Pointer, and moves like a dream. We think that she has everything we need for our future breeding program. We are thrilled to have her, her brother, Will, and her half-siblings Andre and August, in our breeding program. We are also lucky enough to co-own her brother’s Finn and Tommy (and her sister, Jane, is also with Tartan’s owner). Olive’s mother, Brett, has been a phenomenal foundation bitch for us.

More of that gorgeous head.

Olive the Birddog

She already is a natural on birds, as are many of her littermates. She has a great nose and a seriously intense, classic-style point (with a level tail). Her mother is awesome in the field and a natural retriever, so we think Olive will follow in her footsteps.

We will get pictures up of Olive in the field as soon as we take some.

Olive is one of those Pointers that seems to love finding stuff in the yard to stare at intensely.
