Yadkin River’s Althea
(Yadkin River’s Prairie Charles x Yadkin River’s Bonnie Sue)
OFFA: Hips Excellent, Elbows Normal
EIC: Negative by DNA
Bred of British field stock by our friends Yadkin River Kennels in Lenoir, NC, Althea is a guide dog, training assistant, nanny, hostess, and house pet. She can be seen daily at Grayson’s heel as they train the dogs in residence. Althea’s day job is to flush and retrieve game for the pointing dogs, a function which she has performed with impeccable manners thousands of times. Though she is a finished handling retriever, Althea is a master of independently tracking down wounded game on land and water. She has never met a stranger and can be trusted to mill about and interact gently and unobtrusively with guests and their children. Next time you see Grayson, ask him who he considers his most versatile dog.
