Parentage - DNA

Result = VIP


Daisy has been DNA tested to prove parentage. Her certification displays the Blue and Gold seal signifying "VIP" (Verifiable Identified Parentage) confirming both the sire and dam of the dog to be as stated in the pedigree and that she is 100% Llewellin Setter.




Hips - OFA

OFA #: ES-8195F27F-VPI


Daisy has been certified free of hip dysplasia (HD). Based upon the radiograph submitted to the OFA, the consensus was that no evidence of hip dysplasia was recognized and that hip joint conformation passed certification. Only dogs that are certified free of HD are given an OFA number.




Hunting Style


As expected within the Llewellin Setter breed, Daisy has an outstanding nose and can easily home in on birds hunkered down in the field. As a puppy, she was trained to love "find the pheasant dummy" drills in the field. A pheasant dummy was hidden and then she was released to search for it.  In doing this she has learned to sharpen her senses and comb the field. She quarters well, has lots of bounding energy, and is a natural at honoring another dog's point.

Style on Point:  Daisy will hold her tail at around 9:00 and sometimes lower in the same manner of the Setters of olden days. We call that a "throw back" trait.

Range: Close to mid-range



Temperament and Character


Daisy can best be described as a real sweetheart. She craves your attention and is just as sweet and gentle as Llewellins come. She is a very affectionate Llewellin and just wants to be near you. Anyone who meets her would instantly fall in love with her sweet personality.

Awbonnie's Bull - Sire owned by Eric Jacobs of Kentucky is Hope's maternal great-grandsire. Bull was an outstanding Grouse dog. (05/1988 - 01/2000).

Bull was a great grouse dog of tremendous stamina and will to find birds coupled with a superior nose and intellect. Bull made birds. He became a grouse dog with such desire and drive he was a handful. One thing only on his mind, "Find another grouse!". From his humble beginnings as a dog [hunting] too close, he emerged as a great one few men ever witness. Grouse dogs are at the very top of the realm of birddog excellence and he was at the top of this loyal order.
