Jack has a gorgeous
masculine head and expression, strong front assembly and pigment, perfect topline & tailset, excellent movement. A real showman with a
joyous personality, Jack's always strutting with his head held high ensuring that HE gets noticed. He's also a super aggressive
retriever but, on the other hand, Jack is a calm, gentle, loving, very attentive guy, wonderful with kids, little puppies, etc. He's a
natural for therapy work at nursing homes, bringing joy to many lonely, old people. Jack is putting a lot of his best qualities into his
puppies no matter who he's bred to, including strong hunting abilities. Jack's semen is still outstanding at 10 1/2 years of age!
Jack also has sired litters for service dog organizations,
and one of his kids became a certified search and rescue dog in Dec,
