Michael stayed with his dam, Lily, and co-breeder, Carvel, in Ithaca, NY. They are doing field work, hunt tests and may do obedience. Michael certified as a working therapy dog in Cornell’s program at 12 months of age, passed his WC at 17 months of age and finished his JH soon thereafter.
At 2 1/2, Michael finished his Senior Hunter (SH) in four straight tests over two weekends. He ended his quest for his SH in Pittsburgh, the Steel City, a appropriate place given his sire’s name. In August 2011, Michael earned his final Master leg to make him our 10th MH dog.
He earned his Companion Dog (CD) title by passing four out of four shows with two 3rd places and most recently, passed his WCX on his first attempt.
Michael helped his littermates earn Lily’s Outstanding Dam by the time they were 2.5 years old. Like his siblings, Michael is multi-talented, able and willing to change gears from being a terrific field dog to an attentive therapy dog. He is stable with other dogs of all ages, childen and adults. He has plenty of “Go” but settles nicely in the house.
Michael is nicely built with good balance and angulation. He has a wash-and-wear coat but still has good undercoat and moderate length. He is short coupled with a solid topline and correct tail set. He has a lovely head and expression with a dark eye and scissors bite.
Michael is at stud to approved bitches. For more information, contact his owner Carvel Gold.
