  2. Sold: GWP x Labrador Pups

    The bitch for this litter is about 24 inches to the shoulder, the dog about the same size. They're great all-rounders, this pair both do just deer work but I know one of the bitch's sisters works on an estate in Morayshire doing deer and birds and she's lovely and steady.

  8. The constant moaning (dealer prices)
