Over The Limit *** OD (Derby
Gus was an excellent marking dog with intensity, style, speed, intelligence, and extreme birdiness. He earned 8 Derby points, and ran five Qualifying stakes, earning 3 placements and a JAM. Gus had placements in both Amateur and Open all age stakes. Gus was known for his stylish water entry, and his ability to produce it in his offspring!
Gus was a sound, well-built dog with moderate size and coat. In hard working condition, he weighed in at 58 lb. Marcia Schlehr critiqued Gus when he was 11 years of age: "Somewhat smaller dog, very well made, well put together, very clean outline. Good angulation front & rear. Sound true moving dog. Good ribspring, good length of rib cage, short strong loin. Coat short, good firm texture, wavy, good gold color. Attractive head, well shaped, good skull, stop, & muzzle."
Those who knew Gus described him:
Gus lived to 15 years, one months age, and was sound and active up until the time of his death,. He died of natural causes ("old age"). He has reproduced his sound health and longevity in his offspring (not to mention his spectacular water entry)!
