    Seems a little Helter skelter to me. Maybe it’s a bulldog to bulldog breeding.

    Lot of Snooty, some of the old Texas Express Bolio dogs. Lot of of Carver/Eli type stuff.

    Why the last two were bred, who knows? But it is full of some good producers top and bottom.

    The last 2 are good dogs. This is a pup offered to me as a gift from a friend. I realized lots of Eli x Carver. Didn’t want to offend my friend but I gotta ask him what the thought processes are behind it. Can’t put my finger on it. Something about it just not doing it for me.

    Then don’t take it. If it won’t help your program, don’t waste the space just to not offend a friend

    Thx c note. The truth is I should be concentrating on the dogs and there are some good dogs there. Well other than the 1 in the 4th that threw many cold dogs who in turn threw more cold dogs. The ones that worked tho really did their thing. Space is not an issue we could throw 30 out there if that’s what we wanted to do. Truth is I just don’t know what my issue is. Just thought I’d give you guys a go at it. Maybe gain some different perspective.

    Can never really tell from a pup or pedigree. Sometimes you just have to take a chance and let it grow up and show you what it is.

    I've seen 2 gr chs get bred together and not produced squat worth mentioning and I've seen a dog like Wardogs gr ch slammer who was an ACE but his entire bottom of the pedigree was cur bred.

    If you like it and the guy behind it then I'd say take a chance. JMO.

    Well said.

    End of the day you have to grade the dog.

    Ch. Angel was by far the bet female I ever witnessed. Her story along the same lines as GRCH Rushin Bill's 35, only she had papers. And on those papers if you name a dog, male or female, that did something noteworthy in to 70'/80'90's she had it in her pedigree.

    Reading her pedigree I have yet to meet anyone in the dogs that would have said, "Yep, I like the way she is bred, I'll take her".

    She ended up planting them almost as fast as they were bringing them.

    I'd give it a whirl.

    If you got the space, like the brothers said, keep it. I can only keep 4, in my position i would probably get it and give it to my partner in the country. It’s all a gamble anyways. Good luck either way.

    I’m jealous of your space

    a lesson well taught is a lesson well learned. Trust me...I learned my lesson the hard way projecting pups and peds Just interested in some different point of views. C_ note that’s the same thing I said about the space until I had to keep it cut. Now it’s “ what the hell were you thinking “ ...Guess I’ll pick her up tomorrow.
