Hope is a nice honest gun dog with old fashioned style on point.  She was exceptionally easy to break, and has moderate range.  Hope is a fabulous house dog who simply adores people.  She is very dark, her coat is excellent in quality and quantity - exactly perfect for a working gun dog.  She is stoutly built, has very dark eyes, and very black pigment.  She takes her work very seriously and at times a bit too seriously, I am hopeful that her first litter to Chukarhill Burn Notice will bring a bit more resiliency to her pups regarding training pressure. 

Hope has a brother in Germany and a sister in the United states both of whom have produced phenomenal working and looking pups; I have no doubt that Hope will do the same.   A litter brother in Canada is working on his obedience titles and a sister in Norway is doing well at field trials.  There is a good depth of ability and good looks in the litter that Hope came out of.
