Owner : Matthew and Stephanie Shaw
Breed : Labrador Retriever
Birthdate : 14th May 2006

Kia is a beautiful and well natured dog who aims to please any one she meets.

She is an outstanding working dog, possibly one of the best I have had in the 13 years I have worked gun dogs. She has a fantastic style but always covers the ground with ease and style and does works in close proximity to you.

She always works hard and logically across the ground with minimal interrupts from me. She very rarely misses a bird and loves her water retrieving.

She is happy to be handled and placed to a bird but with her style there is no need to, she full sister has won working tests so would have happily trialed if I wanted to follow that route.

At home Kia is happy to be out in the kennel with the other dogs where she will happily be put with any dog. She does prefer to be in the house curled up with you having plenty of cuddles and love, or sat in her bed watching.

She is always adored by anyone who meets her on the shooting field or socially and is the biggest softie for children.

She has produced some fantastic puppies which have gone to both pet and working homes (references available upon request) of which we have four of her puppies ourselves and they are hot on her tail for working ability.

Although her pedigree isn't fully of FTCH's he line has been hand picked by me for working ability but most importantly temperament which is more important to me to create a line that outshines any working dog but most importantly has no aggression at all and easily adapts to working, pets, children, trialing and agility.

She was bred from my first Labrador (I had Springers before) and she is an asset to have and a superb dog and mum.

Photos of her three sons can be seen in our dogs section.
