Artex is first of all, my best friend. He has an amazing personality and he is so extremely smart. I KNOW that he is more like a person than a dog. He loves to be around me and give me attention all the time. I wake up every morning to his gentle nudging on my arm. Artex tells me when it is time for him and the girls to go outside. He is an AKC Canine Good Citizen and a certified Therapy Dog with TDI. He has also been a pet partner with the Delta Society for over two years now.  He is a natural in the field when hunting and he loves the water. Everyone that meets him is left with a good impression and it does not take long for people to realize how amazing he is. The first time I took him dove hunting with me, he saw the birds fall out of the sky and decided that he should go get them and bring them back to us! Everyone was amazed that he was doing this without any prior retriever training.

Artex's true calling is service. Artex loves to meet people and bring a smile to everyone's face with his sweet and gentle personality. He received his CGC and is a certified member of Therapy Dogs Inc. He is also a member of the Kleberg County Mounted Patrol, assisting us with security work and public relations. Two years ago ,we successfully joined the Paws Up group in Corpus Christi, a Delta Society affiliate. We are excited about working with this group and giving back to the community. 

Artex has a very handsome face and an amazing coat. His hair is pitch back and forms into perfect little ringlets all over. His hair is thick but very manageable. One of the best things is that he has NO hair in his ear canals. Lucky for him, this means no pulling or ear infections! He is strong, fast, and agile and just a big sweetheart all around. Beautifully built guy.

He was born on October 22, 2007. Health Tested and cleared OFA hips, elbows, and CERF eyes.
