Attributes/Accomplishments: Lou is a product of distinguished pedigree. Both parents are NAVHDA Versatile Champions each having achieved these titles on their first attempt. Her sire, VC Griff’s Viking Chewbacca (Snup) was the youngest dog to achieve a perfect score at the NAVHDA Invitational when achieving his VC! Her dam, VC Thunderhill’s Dakota Belle also earned her VC title on her first/only attempt at the 2006 NAVHDA Invitational as a 2 year old! Belle’s sire is the well known and highly influential GWP, VC Ken Vospet. Much thought and planning went into selecting “Snup” for what would become Belle’s final litter. Lou was the only pup in this litter and continues the legacy of Dakota Rose Kennels. As the photo illustrate, Lou is an outstanding physical specimen with exceptional composition. Structurally she has an ideal coat, striking top line, deep chest, proportionate frame and all other attributes sought in a GWP. She has a dynamic personality and stable, pleasant temperament. In the field she has fluid, effortless movement while she compliantly seeks quarry. Her nose well exceeds most and often leads her to finding and pointing birds others miss. On point, she strikes a pose that is nothing short of breathtaking. Her intensity is unrivaled and many times she throws a front leg and high tail while pinning birds—Lou’s silhouette leaves many in awe. We are encouraged by the promise and potential Lou embodies. Our patience appears to be paying off and we look forward to the future with guarded optimism.
