Callixus Ursa of Hartenziel


Father and Son

Drake is Rookie's son from his first litter with Bea. He was always the most laid back pup in the litter, and his relaxed disposition has carried on into adulthood; he is the easiest dog to live with and to have out and about at dog events. Such a sweet, sociable and biddable boy. He is not fazed by anything, bold and confident with a streak of goofiness; seemingly a heritable trait...

He has a beautifully calm, kind and sweet temperament and is so level-headed and biddable.


Rookie gave him the most wonderful welcome when he arrived; it was like Christmas morning to him and their relationship has been a joy to experience ever since; they are the best of friends. I feel so fortunate to have two such special boys raised so well by their breeders from day one, I could not have asked for more.

Drake is proving to be a very trainable dog with lots of potential, a natural tracking dog, and I couldn't be happier with his start in the show ring (click here for Drake's show results). Now 3 years old, Drake has become a valued, consistent working dog; he is a strong, keen hunter but with a natural steadiness that has made him very easy to train; he is equally happy sitting waiting to pick pigeons as working hard rough shooting.

A big, cuddly bear of a dog with a huge heart.
