Sam is an absolute machine of a bird dog and the son of 4x Ch Shady Meadows Littlejoe Dan and his mom is Half South Susie, a daughter of Hall of Famer 18x Ch Wilsher's Southern Son and a female littermate of 25x Ch Crow's Little Joe. Wilsher’s Southern Son is out of Hall of Fame 14x Champion Southern Doctor who is also 25x CH Crow’s Little Joe’s Grandpa. There are no 25x Ch Crow's Little Joe genetics in the whole country like Sam's.
Sam is an absolute brag dog that I obviously like enough to take traveling with me (which there's only a couple that make that list). He has hunted from Hawaii to Georgia and half the states in between. He spent his last winter with me hunting chukar and California quail in Nevada and California. Sam is trained steady to flush, backs on sight, retrieves to hand, whoa broke, whistle trained (2 short blasts means turn, 1 long blast mean "here") collar conditioned both to reinforce commands and will turn on the knick of the collar so that he can be handled without making any noise (mainly because we hunt a lot of wild pheasants and wild chukar). Sam is a totally complete bird dog, the caliber of which most people will never own. Combined with some of the rarest genetics in the country for carrying on the 25x Ch Crow's Little Joe line. This is one rare, rare animal.
As a stud dog, Sam throws a ton of drive and a big nose on his pups. We’ve had 6 month old pups of his so bold that they hit 1300 yards on the Garmin and real them back in and made them into great foot hunting bird dogs. They are very, very adaptable dogs that handle very well. There will be a lot of NSTRA champions out of Sam in the years to come.
