Houston x Blue Silk Pedigree
Shaquille is as good a grouse dog as Betsy and Jerry have ever owned. He has a handsome, blocky head and weighs 54 lbs. Shaq has an excellent nose and a strong, powerful stride that always leads to birds. He has incredible endurance and his style and loftiness on point will be the same at the end of three hours as it was at the beginning. Around the kennel, he is extremely charismatic. Any visitor—no matter whether looking at puppies or pointers—ends up in front of Shaq’s run. He has been bred to several females and, fortunately, his progeny have inherited his wonderful qualities.
