With that said there are many good breeders many of which may bs members here so I'm not suggesting that is your only option. The answer to the question about color? The saying many years ago was "you can have any color Lab you want as long as it's black."

I agree wholeheartedly with you about labs, chessies and color but have you personally worked with or hunted with any Wild Rose dogs or are you basing your opinion on the English part? The dogs are extremely intelligent, biddable, lots of drive and are titled to the max. Their tests and titles maybe different but the dogs still need all of the qualities to achieve those titles. We are talking hunting and not trialing, right?
