Re: Looking to get my first hunting dog

There is a reason Pointing Lab is a thing and Retrieving GSP is not. And, good dogs are not cheap. Expect $500 for a decent Lab because of EIC and other health testing.

OMG, just get some triple wormer and do them all. It won't hurt to double up on the pyrantel for a month. Active ingredient you are looking for is praziquantal (sp). You can also use Tapeworm Tabs, but a big dog needs 170 mg, so it's pricey.

Since that's not any kind of certified pedigree, you don't know what titles might be in there. You can run some of the names through NSTRA and see if they placed there. Otherwise, you'll need an official AKC pedigree to tell much on titles.
