Rothievale Gundogs

Hector - OFTW Highlandbrae Hector

Hector has to be the most handsome black labrador dog I have seen to date.  Add to that I have had the pleasure of looking after him and working him whilst his owner was offshore.  He is a gentle giant, big boned and broad chested with a stunning head, thick coat and otter tail.  


He is a softie therefore not for everyone but for me he is the full package, a stunning looking dog with an honest and gentle nature.  He has loads of drive, is a stylish hunter and very efficient on runners.  Coupled with that he is an excellent marker.  He is proven at stud and carries yellow.

His father is FTCh Brindlebay Butler, his mother Hyndford Heartbeat of Highlandbrae.
