Dixielands Coolhand Luke was out of a litter Bob Merkel bred. He bred Dixielands Luke to Wrenegades Reno. Reno was out of Luke bred to rawhides vivid dixie. That was a breeding that worked very well for Bob and he repeated several times.
Dixielands Jesse was out of Dixielands Luke bred to Samantha Simonds Moesgaards, she was owned I believe by Mr. Rabidou.
Pat Waresk has a male out of that breeding, who is finished both ways. Wrenegades Gabriel, he also owns Dixielands Bustin loose belle, who is a NAFC/FC/AFC. Nice dogs. Mr. Merkel still has some of that running through his dogs, I personally like Luke dogs, I have only seen a handful of them but all of them were good bird dogs.
