Am FC Brophy's Rio Grande is an impressive young dog who has shown himself to be one to beat in his short career as a broke dog.  I am super honoured to have been allowed to be the first to use him at stud; i've been bugging Ed about using him since the first day I saw him run.  With Rio's hard driving run, high style, and good looks I think he adds a lot of positive to this breeding.  His pedigree brings to the table NFT NAFC FC AFC Iskote Ani-Mosh (Fred) and one of my favourite Irish Brophy's Independence whose dam brings some old Ballycroy lines in her pedigree.

Russell's Kibou - Hope - is an exceptionally sweet female who, like her Dual Champion dam, wanted to be broke from day one.  She was the number one Irish Setter in the Pacific Northwest Field Trial Association in 2011.  Hope is CKC field and show pointed.  This versatile female has high water love and a keen desire to please.  She combines the versatile pedigrees of my Norwegian Import Can Ch Saeterelva's Russell FD Am JH and BISS Can DC AFTCH AM DC Highfeather Raise 'N A Ruckus Can FDX CD Am MH CD VCX.  Hope is an old fashioned, dark, tight coated female.  Her first litter by Chukarhill Burn Notice (line bred on Fred) produced lovely temperaments, strong driving bird dogs, and sound structure.
