Gun Dog

Hi Guys.

I'm a newbie on here first post so hello to all.
I'm wondering if you guys could recommend a breeder for a labrador working dog I don't mind travelling to get the right dog and I'm not in rush.
I've had two black labs to date and loved them both, previously to that a Golden retriever. Both Labs have retrieved reasonably well especially my first one he was much more onto it than the lab I've got now who is 9 years old and has now lost 70%ish of his vision due to possibly a virus that effected his eyes according to the eye specialist(canine) that looked at him. I  pond shoot and also like to walk creeks etc. Both dogs have been reasonable on winding pheasants as well.

The type of lab I'm looking for is hopefully from a working pedigree more along the lines of the American type(hope I can say that),athletic, lighter longer legged type build.

I also chase a few deer around the hills of Gisborne so I'd like to give him/her a run at that as well.

Thanks any advice appreciated.
