Snoop Dog (Novaforesta Lady Fern)

Snoop Dog - Novaforesta Lady Fern

Snoop Dog (Novaforesta Lady Fern) comes from Martha`s first litter born in 2015 (see below). This litter was of personal interest as the pups were a combination of the two lines btought into the UK in 2006. mother (Novaforesta Effie) was born in the UK and remained with us while waiting the extra weeks for her rabies vaccinations to be done before travelling to Holland. Effie proved to be an excellent pup, smart, easy to train and with an excellent temperament to match. While it is always very tempting to keep a pup from each litter, over time it becomes harder to keep collecting more and more dogs and to be part of an ongoing breeding program you need to keep expanding the gene pool available to you. When Effie was mated with Quaciendas Alex Gauche Unique and a female was available this seemed to be too good an opportunity to pass up on.

Snoop passed her B.V.A Eye Test in August 2016 and she has a B.V.A hip score of 4 (2,2) which is an `A` in the European equivalent.
Snoop also has an elbow score of 0-0.

Martha - Reeds Fowlings Alexia)

Martha (Reeds Fowlings Alexia) was born in Holland on 14/08/2012 and was imported into the UK in December of that year. Again this was a litter whose progress was being monitored as Martha`s mother (Novaforesta Effie) was born in the UK and remained with us while waiting the extra weeks for her rabies vaccinations to be done before travelling to Holland. Effie proved to be an excellent pup, smart, easy to train and with an excellent temperament to match. While it is always very tempting to keep a pup from each litter, over time it becomes harder to keep collecting more and more dogs and to be part of an ongoing breeding program you need to keep expanding the gene pool available to you. When Effie was mated with Quaciendas Alex Gauche Unique and a female was available this seemed to be too good an opportunity to pass up on.

Martha is loved by all. She has always been a bit of a character and seems to make people smile whatever she does. Despite giving the appearance of being a bit of a diva at times, Martha is more than happy to give truth to the saying "as muddy as a barbet" and has passed the Test d`Aptitude Naturelle (Eau) the basic French test for retrievers in water.

Martha most recently passed her B.V.A Eye Test in August 2016 and she has a B.V.A hip score of 15 (7,8) which is an `B` in the European equivalent.

Martha has passed `Confirmation` in France - where dogs over a year old are examined by an experienced French judge and certified as being good examples of the breed, and was graded as `Excellent` by two different judges over two days at a major show in France.

In September 2016 she won `Best of Breed` at an International Show in Le Touquet, France.

Martha`s first litter were born in February 2015 following a mating with Novaforesta Dudley and comprised five females and one male.
her second litter, born in June 2017 comprised seven pups, four males and three females, having been mated using Artificial Insemination by Canadian Champion Flacon D'Paris Of Neigenuveaux.

Hallie (Charamese Hermione)

Hallie (Charamese Hermione) was bred in the UK by Julie McDougal and comes from a litter of 14. Born on 04/04/12, Hallie is the daughter of two dogs of our own breeding, her dam, Bonnie (Novaforesta Dora) and sire Eton (Novaforesta Eton) are both excellent examples of the breed and with a breeding coefficient of 8.57% over six generations, this was a litter that we obviously took a keen interest in.

Hallie has passed `Confirmation` in France - where dogs over a year old are examined by an experienced French judge and certified as being good examples of the breed. Hallie has since gone on to achieve amazing success in the showring in France and became a French Champion in 2014.

Not just a pretty face, Hallie has also passed the Test d`Aptitude Naturelle (Eau) the basic French test for retrievers in water.

Hallie has now been retired, having produced 2 wonderful litters in the UK. Hopefully some of these will go on to match their mother's success.
