This litter's dam is Osage Rita Roan (aka Rita). Rita is a female we kept out of our first breeding of Osage and Cash. She is one of the hardest working dogs in our Texas wild bird hunting guide string. Rita's pedigree goes back through many generations of Smith dogs with the most recent outcrosses to dogs such as: NFC FC AFC Shambo's Dark Shadow and Nolan's Last Bullet. She and her full brother, Chief, have proven themselves to be both exceptional dogs in the bird field and companions in the home.
The sire of this litter, NAFC/GFC/FC/AFC Spanish Corral's Sonny Patch (owned by Joe Gower), has a long list of accolades. Not only does Patch perform well as a field trial competitor, but he is used on professionally guided wild chukar hunts in challenging terrain. Here is a list of his field trial wins:
-2016 ABC Chukar Classic Runner-Up
-2016 Western Region All Age Champion
-2015 ABC National Amateur Field Champion
-2014 ABC Chukar Classic Runner-Up
-2014 Western Region All Age Champion
-2013 Arizona Amateur All Age Champion

We will be keeping a pup as a prospect for our future hunts and future breedings, however there are some pups currently available. Contact us as soon as possible if you would like to add one of these pups to your hunting or field trialing string!
Puppies will be ready to go to their new homes at 8 weeks of age. At that time they will be well socialized, introduced to birds and the field, up to date on vaccinations and worming. We will discuss your hunting style and needs with you and work to find the best fit for your particular needs and set up.
The puppies will be availabe for pickup at Ronnie Smith Kennels in Big Cabin or we can help arrange for them to be flown to you. All travel related costs will be paid by the buyer.
Puppy price is: $1,500.
Please note: Out of respect for the generations of dedication it has taken to build these strong lines of bird dogs and the needs of the individual dogs themselves, we only place puppies with hunting and/or trialing owners.
