Hitman is a handsome gold/white male (non merle, masking black/white) out of our only breeding of Spryte (AKC CH HarborMist Amaretto Sunrise Crush RN BCAT ACT1 DSA CGCU CGCA) x Ryder (O'my! Midnight Ryder DE DM). You can read more about this litter by clicking here.
Hitman is such an awesome dog -- cool as a cucumber one moment and feisty and causing a commotion the next. He is very intuitive, much like many of his relatives, offering natural eye contact and settling abilities. He LOVES to be with people and to hangout with his person. His confident good nature really caught our eye early on in addition to his overall balance and movement. Fierce toy drive and a natural swimmer, we know he will continue on in the next generation of versatile performance dogs and follow in the footsteps of his talented grandparents. He got his AKC Novice Trick Dog Title at just 10 weeks old! He got his Dock Senior title at just 8 months of age with a personal best of 18'!!
While Hitman was our pick keeper from this breeding, his "foster family" fell in love with him (how could you not??!) and he fell in love with them so the decision was made for him to stay with them permanently. Clair & Brian also co-own his older cousin Dream (Hops/Wish) and I am so thankful they opened their home to another one of our babies.
At not yet 2 years of age, Hitman is the beast we knew he would be in dog sports. He has a huge stride in agility, incredible power off the dock, and natural tracking abilities in disc. Hitman qualified for the 2021 Skyhoundz DDAT World Championship in his first season of playing disc. He reminds us so much of his grandaddy, Player, both in temperament and performance ability, that people often assume he is a Player kid when they see him out on the field. Hitman is a giant teddy bear and loves to give big bear hugs.
Check back to watch him start his adventures alongside his cousin Dream, as he tackles agility, dock diving, frisbee, and dabbles in conformation!
