Our Future Plans:
Hemi & Ginja
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
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 several AKC Champions. Additionally, he is the sire of many titled NAVHDA Natural Ability Brittanys and his grandpups as well as great grandpups are also proving themselves in competitive events. Hemi's hip health rating is through PennHip and is 0.43/0.43 80th Percentile.
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
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 then finished in 2021 with impressive scores in each. She has several placements in AKC pointing breed field trials. Ginja is a bird hunting machine with a strong prey drive while possessing a deeply affectionate personality. Our plans are to breed Ginja to Hemi at her next heat. Thus, producing our 5th generation of J&A’s Brittanys close working gundogs. We anticipate this pairing will produce dual quality pups. We will be looking for active hunting and competitive homes with prior Brittany experience. She has a strong hip health background with several generations of OFA Excellent hips behind her. Ginja is certified as OFA Excellent Hips, OFA Normal Eyes, OFA Normal Elbows. A CHIC number is pending.
