CH J&A's Magnificent Obsession of Acton JH - HEMI

Sire: GCH CH Tonan Hope's RU Kiddin Me - CHEVY

Dam: CH J&A's Heartfelt Legend of Acton - PIPPIN

DOB 5.10.11

Hemi is probably the cutest freckly faced Brittany on the face of the earth. Lovingly referred to as ‘little britches’ or ‘Hemikins’ his personality is extremely laid back and mellow unless he is bird hunting. Then he is all business, and he turns into a flashy, high performance, no-nonsense hunting dog who is a delight to hunt with. Orange and white, Hemi's stature is solid and cobby and he weighs in at 35 lbs. and stands @18 ½'' tall. Sired by “CHEVY” (Multiple BISS GCH CH Tonan-Hopes RU Kiddin Me) who in 2009 was the #1 Brittany in the country, his mother is our Pippin (CH J&A's Heartfelt Legend of Acton) who is the result of a line breeding on 3X AmFldCh Multi BISS DC AFC Masked Shoshoni War Chief JH. His grandfather is CH Hills Blazin' Jac JH. In his own right Hemi's strong natural hunting ability surfaced by the age of 5 weeks when awakened to game birds for the first time. Hemi earned his AKC Junior Hunter title in no time at all when just a little over a year old.  Also, Hemi won the blue as first-place dog in the Central Maine Brittany Club Open Derby at the age of 14 months, winning juvenile field champion points handled by John. Hemi has been shown selectively by Ann, finished his AKC bench championship in June 2013 and has earned major points towards a grand championship title. There are numerous titled hunting dogs behind Hemi and many Dual Champions as well.  Hemi has also proven his worth as a stud dog for us and other likeminded Brittany breeders and has sired several litters. He is a grandsire to many.  He has proven to be a producer of outstanding hunting dogs with wonderful conformation, several who are dual pointed. His progeny includes 6 AKC Junior Hunters, 1 AKC Senior Hunter, and 3 AKC Champions.  Additionally, he is the sire of many titled NAVHDA Natural Ability Brittanys.

J&A’s Golden Abundance of Hope, NA108 Prize 1 - GINJA
Sire: J&A’s Apple Jack of Acton JH - JACK
Dam: J&A’s Carry the Dream of Acton JH, NA110 Prize 1 - HOLLY

DOB 8.5.19

Originally her call name was “Ginger”, but it was quickly changed to “Ninja-Ginja” (Ginja for short) based upon her agile athletic attributes, personality and overall zest for life!  Ginja is the result of a well-timed surgical insemination breeding using frozen semen from our beloved Jack Dog who died in 2017.  She follows in the footsteps of her mother “Holly Beth” as an intense and serious bird dog with strong drive. Ginja is extremely enthusiastic and animated. She enjoys the water and weather permitting finds swimming in our farm pond great fun! Her natural retrieving skills are being honed.  Despite most dog events being cancelled in 2020, she successfully tested in both NAVHDA and AKC venues earning her Natural Ability title and 2 legs of her Junior Hunter title which she will finish in 2021.  She scored high in her hunting skills in both venues.  As various dog clubs move forward plans are that she will be involved with additional venues. As she approaches the age of 2, we must remember she is still a puppy with occasional puppy hi-jinks!  Even so, she is a bird hunting machine with a strong prey drive while possessing a deeply affectionate personality. Once Ginja turns 2 she will undergo the required OFA health testing necessary to obtain a CHIC number. Recently, her eyes were tests and are certified ‘normal’ with the OFA Companion Animal Eye Registry (CAER). With OFA Excellent hip ratings on her mother, grandmother, great grandmother she has a heritage of strong and healthy hips. Our plans are to breed Ginja to Hemi once her health tests are complete. Thus, producing a 5th generation of J&A’s Brittanys close working gundogs.
