We are thrilled at the ease our gorgeous boy "GUS" attained his CHAMPION title, still in Junior Class.


We thank his Breeder Bev Jones of KIRKDELL LABRADORS for trusting us with this special boy.


Gus is a stunning dog in both type and temperament with an outstanding International and Australian pedigree.


Brother to the magnificent "TILLY" - SUPREME CHAMPION Kirkdell Maestra (AI).


Gus is a beautiful boy, with fantastic movement, lovely head, gorgeous expression and great pigment.

He's quite a charašter, a very clever happy out going boy with a beautiful nature and loads of personality.


His awards so far include:-

2022 ADELAIDE ROYAL - BEST OF BREED going on to BEST IN GROUP 4th. 250 Gundog entries.

2023 South Australian Labrador SPECIALTY Best Austalian Bred in SHOW. So proud of him.

[Blue]Baby Puppy in GROUP - 4 x Puppy in GROUP - 3 x Junior in GROUP - Inter in GROUP - 4 x Aust Bred in GROUP - 2 x Open in GROUP.


At home he just loves helping or hindering with whatever you are doing. Such a funny boy.

One of his favorite things is being the prewash cycle for the dishwasher. Great!

He is always near or in the car or Van hoping we are going for a drive somewhere.

He loves playing fetch, swimming, camping or playing with his mates Gibbs & Kensi. They have a wow of a time.
