Pepper is AKC registered and NAHVDA registered and tested. She scored a 107, Prize II, on her natural ability test and is a great versatile hunting dog that loves to hunt on the mountain or in the river. She is also a very important member of our family that loves to ride in the side by side, get her ears scratched and get a good belly rub. None of this holds a candle to hunting though. That is when she is truly happy!
