Announcing a new breeding of
CH F’Nat Du Mas D’Pataula TR (Call name “Pride”) to CH Jamary bois du courcol which should produce tri color and black and white puppies. Puppies ready to go to new home late fall of 2018.
Pride was produced and is owned by Fred Overby. He is a direct son of French import Big Boss Du Bussion De Choisel and one of only a few living direct grandsons of the legendary French Dual Champion Nat Du Bussion De Choisel, who dominated the French Field Trial Circuit in the mid to late 1980’s. Pride also carries the lineage of Nat through two lines on his dam’s side, as his litter as well as his dam’s were both purposefully line-bred to try and increase the influence of the late great Nat. On the dam’s side, Pride is a three generation product of the two-decade cooperative breeding programs of Butch Nelson (kennel “du Hyalite”) and Fred Overby, whose earliest Epagneul Bretons carried the “Toujours Fidele” name and whose later dogs carry the “de Pataula” and “du Mas D’Pataula” kennel names.
Pride is a very striking “cobby" black tricolor male with significant well-marked patches of solid white in his coat with minimal freckling. He has solid bone and very typey morphological features for an Epagneul Breton stud dog. He has been rated Excellent in overall conformation by four French Judges at CEB-US National Shows, and was named Best of Breed in a 2013 Regional Specialty Show of approximately 40 entries held in Georgia and judged by the Honorable William Sandy Gun. His hips are OFA Good. His pups are often dogs of color with a good amount of white in the coat, and they are consistently easy-to-train natural hunting dogs.
As an individual dog in the field, Pride developed early and easily as a natural bird dog. He pointed and retrieved his first shot wild quail to hand at five months of age, and has done so ever since. He is an exceptional natural retriever and has never had any formal training to retrieve. He points, backs and retrieves naturally, as do his offspring, all of which tend to be very easy dogs to start and finish in the field. Pride has had a successful career in field trialing, and currently carries the UKC Pointing Dog Program Title of Trialer (TR). In addition to his present title for field work and multiple other award classifications earned in the Gun and Open Class UKC Field Trial competitions, Pride has secured three First Place Open Class wins in UKC Type (W) field trials conducted on wild game and will soon be eligible to apply for and to receive a UKC CHF-W title. However, he is still active in his trialing career with the goal and objective of securing future UKC CHF and GRCHF field titles. Pride’s breeder/owner describes him individually as “a natural hunting dog of excellent conformation and soundness for breeding, very easy to train and handle, and extremely consistent and reliable in field work — almost never making a mistake handling a bird in a hunting situation.”
these puppies should be ready to go to their new homes in late first quarter 2018.

Her sire Corentin des Grands Lacs (Cory) is a direct 2nd generation descendant of the 100 year French Specialty Show winner. Cory was also featured on the cover of Covey Rise Magazine.
Both parents are natural pointers and love to cover the field to find birds. Both parents are super loves in the house and Skylar in particular cannot get enough pets and will sit there by your side as long as you are willing to continue petting her.
