Fox red and yellow working labradors
OFTW Quarnford Grouse of Rufriver - Ralphie
Ralphie is a strong, well built fox red Labrador dog by FTCh Mediterian Blue. He is fast, powerful and stylish and yet biddable and fantastic to train.  He is bold in cover and into water.  His temperament is ideal for us - he is steady and calm at the peg and still ready to take a runner during a drive.  At home, he loves to go training or is happy to switch off and relax in the office.
