Gin is a super sweet talented hunting dog with high prey drive and very easy going gentle house companion. She possesses a very soft mouth, a deep nose to find and retrieve down game and can hold a point on upland birds. Gin's prey drive and desire to hunt critters at the farm has given her a career as our "frog dog". She would hunt all day, is super fast at catching critters, can dive under water and has caught litterally 100's of bull frogs. With her soft mouth, never a critter or feather is harmed!! She is a strong swimmer and takes to diving after ducks.
Gin is known for her super sweet temperament, she loves all other dogs and adores puppies and kids.
Gin also loves obedience and has beautiful movement when heeling. She is a quick learner, focussed, smart and fun to train using positive methods and attrition. She wants to be right and tries hard but cannot handle unfair or tough corrections. Gin will be the dog to get me into the obedience ring one day!
As a house companion she has always been super easy, always settles and is not needy. She has a ton of heart combined with a super sweet personality.
