BULLET'S ACE HI GAMBLER
GAMBLER'S HOPE'N TIME'LL FLY

Description

River Haven Brittanys in Hertford, NC has an outstanding litter of nine AKC registered Brittany pups. There are 6 males and 3 females. We have both white/orange and orange roan pups. Click on the PUPPIES FOR SALE page to see a picture of Hope with her pups.

The litter was sired by Bullets Ace Hi Gambler and was whelped by Gamblers Hope’n Time’ll Fly. Both Ace and Hope are exceptional bird dogs. They have outstanding pedigrees and we expect these pups to be top-of-the-line hunting dogs, great companions and potential field trial prospects. See the combined pedigree below.

This is a repeat breeding. We have received lots of positive feedback from the owners of the pups from the first litter. The pups have shown lots of natural bird-finding abilities, retrieving skills and great temperaments. One of the pups from the previous litter will be competing in the National Shoot to Retrieve Association (NSTRA) this coming fall.

Ace and Hope are both grand-sired by NFC DC AFC Gamblers Ace in the Hole (HOF). Gamblers Ace in the Hole comes from a long line of National Champions and Hall of Famers including NFC FC AFC Rimarda’s Gambler, FC AFC Rimarda’s Trademark (HOF), NAFC FC AFC The Real Thing, 2x NFC DC AFC Ban-Dee (HOF) and FC Kay-Cee Bandit (HOF). NFC DC AFC Gamblers Ace in the Hole (HOF) was the 1998 NFC Champion, 1999 IAMS Award winner and the 1999 Quail Classic Champion. It was once said by a veteran field trial participant concerning Gamblers Ace in the Hole..."In over 40 years of participation in field trials, I have never seen another dog that I always found exciting, often thrilling and never disappointing."
