View Abe's Pedigree

Abe, along with his sister, Katie (Westwind Ms. Katahdin) comes from an exciting field breeding from Westwind Mackenzie Goldrush's last breeding to Delaware Chief Nicobe. This was a frozen breeding bringing back an excellent field trial line that has had very limited breeding. It is an excellent addition to our limited gene pool. The sire, Nicky, made the 1990 National Derby list with 13 derby points. Despite limited trialing due to a change in owners, Nicky also had a qualifying win and an Amateur All-breed win. Look for both these Rudy grandchildren on the field trial circuit.

Abe is large, solid brown, and has a great temperament. He is a natural marker in the field, earning two derby JAMs in his first year of field training. In September 2003, at 14 months of age, he received a JAM (Judges' Award of Merit) at the Maine Retriever Trial Club's fall trial. In October 2003, he received a JAM at the Chesapeake National Field Specialty in Kingman, Kansas. Abe is a very stylish retriever with a great water entry.

Abe is a beautiful dog who will quickly finish his show champion. He weighs 85 pounds. In December 2003, with only several weekends of showing, he earned 4 show points, including a Best of Breed over the specials.
