WCA Hall of Fame 2016
With both of his parents holding National Field Championship titles "Gus" came by his extraordinary field talent honestly. Trained and handled by his owners Myron and Debra Meifert and handled on the Amateur side by David Gould, Gus's field career was a continuous series of highlights. Known for remarkable biddability and consistency in his work, Gus finished his Field Championship as a 2-year old. He won 7 WCA Regional Field Classic stakes including sweeping all of the All Age/Gun Dog stakes at the 2003 Western Field Classic. He won the 2002 National Field Championship over 36 challengers and was runner up in the 2006 National Championship. Gus added the National Amateur Field Champion title to his name in 2005. Gus was the Weimaraner #1 All Age/Gun Dog for the years 2002, 2003 and 2004 and went on to round out his field accomplishments by earning a Master Hunter title, Shooting and Retrieving Dog Excellent titles and a NAVHDA Utility Test Prize II. In the obedience ring he earned Companion Dog and Rally Excellent titles.
In addition to many local and regional field trial stake winners Gus sired 4 Field Champions including one who was also the winner of the 2006 National Field Futurity. He also sired many very successful NAVHDA competitors, sired NAVHDA Breeder Award litters, many NA and UT titled dogs and the NAVHDA Versatile Champion, VC Silvershot's Li'l Tom Boy, SDX, NA1, UT1. He also sired a NSTRA Champion and in Europe, a multi-titled dog that subsequently had a major influence on the European Weimaraner as a sire.
