GCH CH IntlCH Flatbrook’s Balcones Buckaroo JH NA1 FD CGC (“Wembley”)

First and foremost, Wembley is our constantcompanion and an integral part of our family. He possesses a very loving temperament - he’s playful, clownish and exceedingly loyal. In the field, he exhibits superb athleticism and stamina. He hunts with single-minded purposefulness: seeking game birds and fur in all terrains and holds a wonderful point when he's on prey.

Wembley earned a prestigious NAVHDA NA Prize I with a score of 110 points (out of 112), demonstrating his versatile hunting abilities. While testing for his Junior Hunter title, Wembley qualified in 4 successive runs with near perfect scores in 3 completely different types of terrain & weather conditions. Further, Wembley was recognized with a Field Dog (FD) title by the AWPGA in 2010 at the club’s National Specialty.

In the show ring, Wembley’s enjoyed incredible success, and recognition. Setting an unprecedented record, it took only sixteen months to go from his first ring appearance as a puppy to AKC Grand Championship (at 27 months of age.)By the age of 19 months old, he was an AKC Champion. Along the way, Wembley also earned 3 UCICB International Champion titles.Wembley's show record includes of a Sporting Group placement, over 40 Best of Breeds, 6 Select Dog, 10 Best of Winners, 19 Winners Dog awards and 14 class wins. Wembley finished 2010 as one of the top ranked Griffons in the nation. Needless to say, we're extremely proud of our little “Buck”. We will be showing Wembley on a very limited basis during 2011-12.

Wembley's sire isCH Flatbrook’s Burn Baby Byrne SH UT FD, one of the leading champions & stud dogs of the breed (two time AWPGA Stud Dog of the Year). His lineage includes some of the finest field & show Griffons of recent memory. The bulk of Wembley's pedigree is rooted in Flatbrook, Goose Creek, Wet Acres and Fireside lineages, arguably the best of the Griffon bloodlines.

Wembley is available for stud services to approved brood bitches. Wembley’s health clearances include OFA Hips - Good, OFA Elbows - Normal, CERF - Normal, K Locus - KBKB . Please contact us for details.

We are proud participants in theprogram of the Canine Health Information Center.

Miss Marley of Balcones CGC

Marley is a Griffon mix whom we rescued from a kill shelter in 2005. When we found her, she'd been badly abused & neglected suffering from broken ribs, broken pelvis, malnutrition, heartworm and numerous other parasites. During that year, Marley made a full recovery and now serves the community applying her hunting instincts as a search & rescue dog, working at law enforcement's request to locate missing people & investigate crime scenes. Like other Griffons, she exhibits excellent nose, single-mindedness of purpose, great stamina and a genuine willingness to please. Most importantly, she's a close family member whose companionship we cannot do without.

She exhibits excellent hunting instincts already earning a coveted NAVHDA Prize I on her NA test with a near-perfect score in the spring of 2016 and completing her AKC JH title in December 2015 at 7 months of age.

There is nothing this dog loves more than being out in the bird field. Cha Cha is now training for her AKC SH and NAVHDA UT titles. She has also been setting the show ring on fire! Watch for her at some major shows during 2017!
