|Hatter is an 85 pound, well built, exceptionally handsome chocolate dog with a lot of talent and a great personality. He has a sense of humor, too. He is a pretty special dog with a very special pedigree: son of MHR Deep Run After Six, MH, grandson of GMHRCH Six O'Clock Scholar, MH.|
Hatter is the first chocolate Labrador Retriever ever to receive Master Hunter titles in both Retrieving and Flushing, and he received both Master titles in one year.
He is an excellent marker, has a superior nose, and handles very nicely. He is a joy to train, run and hunt, whether on waterfowl or upland birds. He is a very fun dog to have around: he is always happy to get a towel and stand on the bumper to be dried off after any water work.
Hatter is OFA Hips Good, Elbows Normal, EIC and CNM Clear, OFA Cardiac, Full Dentition, Patellas Normal, OFA Eyes Clear. Here is a link to Hatter's OFA page.

All DEEP RUN puppies are born in the house,
have dewclaws removed, are wormed and vaccinated with the best biologicals
available. Pups are handled and well socialized, introduced to the collar and leash and
pigeons before they leave. Weather permitting, they are also introduced
to the water. Most puppies are sold before they are old enough to leave, so we recommend a
deposit as soon as you decide on a litter. If you come to pick up your
pup and donít find him or her suitable, your deposit will be immediately
refunded or transferred to another litter. Please call Phyllis
to discuss your special needs in a Field bred Labrador pup.
