Anna has been sold, though Anna is not available the following description has been left here for those who may be interested to have defined, what is to be expected of our next finished gundog. Anna has been raised in the home, she is fully trained with all commands; sit, stay, down, kennel, heel, etc., Anna has turned out to be an excellent dog on grouse and woodcock this season, she is built for speed, yet works with her handler cooperatively checking back enough to keep in contact, she works the cover thoroughly with low and high head at full gallop, as with my two Versatile Champions of North America (VCs) she will point or indicate early sign of scent, then wait for me, then when released work closer to the bird and point again, this is and indicator that she is extremely cooperative and loves her work, all this to the benefit of her, new owner. Anna weighs in at 45 lbs. and 21 1/2 inches tall .
