Master's Why So Serious, "Ledger", came to us in late 2017 at 8 months old. After finding out he was still available, we began to discuss him with his breeder. A few VERY short weeks later, Ledger was on our doorstep all the way from Arizona. Named for the notorious Joker actor, Heath Ledger, our boy is anything but serious. Ledger is the typical golden goofball and enjoys the chance to run free and swim in ponds. He is very birdy and watery, and has very high toy drive. He is an easy going dog, gentle in nature with children and the elderly. He cohabitates with other intact males nicely, and does not display any aggressive tendencies. Ledger's senior hunter title was expected prior to 2020, however we unfortunately encountered a trainer who was extremely cruel to him, and set his training behind. As a testament to his temperament and drive, Ledger has come back from this horrible experience and still loves to play the game, and loves to meet strangers.
He's a hard-hitting, high drive dog who we hope will go far. He has excelled in agility, earning his NAJ with all first places, and a first place leg towards his NA. We also plan on adding his HR and RN this year. He has matured nicely with a thick, dark coat. He is deep in the chest, with nice rear angles. He has a smooth topline, correct bite, and kind expression. He weighs around 70-75lbs and stands approximately 24" tall. Ledger is standing at stud to approved bitches. We do not stud to bitches without all GRCA recommended clearances, or to breeders who produce/support doodles.
