Nettie is from Maia and the gorgeous Fiete, Maia's 1st and only litter, the 4th Willowswind home bred litter and is owned by me and Courtney.   She was always a fairly chilled puppy compared to some of the others in the litter but she did seem to have that little something that just stood out.  Once she was chosen to stay she became more outgoing as she had to fend herself against the 8 boys (the girls were all homed first) and so quickly became a match for Maia's presonality.  She absolutely adores her Uncle Murphy and everything he does she has to do too, whether it be drinking, sleeping or playing. Nettie like her mother is very quick

to learn and at 8 weeks was already retrieving pheasant wings.  Her nickname is Nettie Noodle.  


Nettie had a great start to her puppy career, qualifying for Crufts at Darlington, her first championship show under Becky Johnson, taking Best Puppy Bitch at the Joint FCRS 2016 under Gemma Jacobs and Best Puppy in show at the 2016 NEFRA championship show under Louise Jones.  She also had numerous top 3 placings at other championship shows and  Best Puppy in Breed at open shows, taking several puppy group placings also.  Nettie gained her Junior Warrant at 17 months old at National Gundog under Elaine Whittaker.  She was lightly shown and continued to do well with many top three placings including a 3rd at Crufts in 2019 and 2020.  In October 2018 she took Best in show under judge Mrs Allison Laird at the Flatcoated Retriever Club of Scotland open show and then took Best Bitch and Best Opposite Sex at the 2019 show under Dominic Salt.


She is such a funny and sweet girl to live with. Nettie also does agility training two to three times a week and absolutely loves it, she doesn't always have her head in the right place but when she does it all comes together.  We are hoping to compete if we get the chance.
