Congratulations are in order for Amos who is in the Current Top Producing Sires for the 5th year in a row in the August/September 2023 HRC Magazine page 54. 

Left: 8/10/19 Amos earned his 500 points at Teal Lodge! Congrats to David and Amos!

Right: 8/13/06 Striker earned his 500 points at Teal Lodge!

The walk on the same bridge for both dogs at Teal Lodge signifies a lot of hard work for the Heldts! 

However Striker did go on to earn over 1500 points in his impressive career and still holds the 3rd golden retriever to earn this many points.

We're so proud of Amos' accomplishment!

Amos - What can I say about Awesome Amos? I thought Striker had tons of drive especially at a young age but this little guy managed to go 4 for 4 for his Started Title and achieved that by 7 1/2 months of age. He loves the game! We are very proud of him! He is also a very fast runner.

He is a son of FC AFC OTCH AFTCH MOTCH TNT'S Stanley Steamer MH FDHF, OBHF, AM. OTCH, OS, UDX X Porjay's Black Eyed Pea JH (Fergie)

So it's no wonder with a sire of this caliber, he has this natural drive and ability. He has been very well bred.

April 2, 2016 Amos Moses earned his Hunting Retriever Champion Title at the Southern Colorado HRC test.   We are so very proud of him.  He has worked hard at getting it and it is a well deserved title earned.  Those of you who have done this know how much time and work goes into training a dog of this caliber. 

Amos reached his 500 points on August 10, 2019 at the Platte Valley Hunt test.  We are very proud of him and also David as an amateur handler in achieving this goal!

Also in Amos is ranked 7th in the HRC magazine for 2021 top ten producing sires.  This is his third year for being ranked.  What another wonderful accomplishment for him.

Amos has done extremely well with all of his clearances. He has Excellent rated hips and has cleared on eyes, heart and elbows.   We have done some additional clearances and he has cleared on the PRA and PRA1 along with the Ichthyosis. Ichthyosis is a skin issue in the pups if both parents are carriers. However Amos should never produce a pup with such issues.

Amos now has 660 points and still is enjoying running the hunt tests.  He is now retired from breeding since he is 10 years old.  Most of our females are his daughters so we can pass down those wonderful genetics and hunting lines.
