Trulines Wild Son QA2, MH, WCX
(8.5 All-Age Points, Qualified All-Age, Master Hunter, 7 Derby Points)
Trulines Wild Son QA2, MH, WCX (Nike) is a pup from the first breeding in the history of the AKC out of two chocolate Field Champions (FC title). FC-AFC Way-Da-Go Call Of The Wild is Nike's sire. His dam is FC-AFC Rebel Ridge's Devils Luck MH. We purchased Nike in October 2012 from John and Amie Henninger, owners/field trial trainers at Truline Retrievers. John and Amie purchased Nike when his original owners did not have time for him due to a protracted illness in their family. Nike achieved 7 Derby points with John and Amie in limited trialing.
Nike is hard charging, athletic, an absolute lover, and prefers to be a lap dog. Nike lives to train and is a team player. He enjoys running blind retrieves and seems to prefer water blinds over land blinds. We took Nike pheasant hunting in North Dakota in October 2012 right after purchasing him. I think we created a monster. Nike flushed and retrieved several pheasants in chest to shoulder height heavy cover. He also hunted up several wounded birds on our family hunts.
Nike has a stocky build, a thick medium chocolate coat color, and weighs 71 pounds. Nike has an Amateur Win, an Open 2nd and 4th, is Qualified All-Age, and had 7 Derby points in field trial competitions. Nike has a Master Hunter title and a Certificate of Working Ability Excellent.
Nike and Dianne competed in the 2018 National Amateur Field Trial through 7, out of 10 series. Nike was the only chocolate competing out of 98 dogs. Nike was retired from competition in September 2018 due to a chronic injury. Nike is also retired from stud dog service due to his age. Nike is enjoying being a full time house dog and training three days a week.
