Leiborschy Mila of Zamiyla x Starshot Harvest Moon
Hip score 8/4
Rufous is a human in a hairy coat, he never fails to make me smile with his silly antics, he is a bit of a buffoon, but such a loveable character.
He was lightly shown as a youngster and competed at agility.
I started to work him on the shoot at home, and despite receiving no prior gundog training he has flourished into a first rate picking up dog, has been taken beating on local shoots, and is also regularly used as a stalking dog – mainly on roe, fallow and muntjac.
He is very popular on the shoot and takes it upon himself to meet and greet the guests, introducing them to the joys of a HWV!
