Precious, Teka, and Angel, our girls, and Lord Riley, our stud, are all very loving, playful, intelligent, athletic and caring parents. Teka and Lord Riley, have a "parent dynamic" in their relationship that is quite unique. They are all truly a family unit. They love to romp and play in the yard as well as indoors. Angel and Riley are demonstrating that they will have a similar relationship. Angel has Championship status with UKC and Riley, although not shown, does have championship on his sire's side.
To see these parent dogs interact with the puppies from birth and as they grow the first 8 weeks of their lives, it is astounding how loving, playful and protective all of our parent dogs are with these beautiful and wonderful young puppies.
"Ledbetter's Angel of the Heart"
Angel was chosen by us because of her bloodlines and came highly recommended from another Breeder. She comes from a similary bloodline as our foundation stud and has proven her quality. She is a UKC (United Kennel Club) Champion.
Her athletiscism, intelligence, loving attitude, agility and willingness to please is unparalleled making her the perfect candidate to carry on the East County American Cocker Spaniel bloodlines, qualities and heritage. She has also exhibited a loving and protective natural mothering instinct toward our March 21, 2021 litter where she would snuggle with them, love them and take care of them as if they were her very own. That is a natural quality within a female that is rare when the puppies are not her very own. We look forward to some superior puppies from this beautiful female.
Angel will be considered for breeding for her first litter sometime in 2022 or 2023. Look for her litters soon.
"Ledbetter's Lord Riley"
Riley is the son of Precious and Julius. He is now standing at stud for East County American Cocker Spaniels. Lord Riley was chosen for his mellow temper, incredible loving nature, quickness to learn, his playfulness and many more attributes. We are very delighted and excited to have him in our breeding program here at East County american Cocker Spaniels.
Originally, his litter name was "King Arthur". Once we decided to keep this wonderful puppy within our family, we have changed his name to reflect his personality as well as the family name of Ledbetter.
Riley is a very doting father. He loves to spend time with his off spring and takes the time to gently play with each and every one of them. Riley maintains the aura of "Protector" for his sons and daughters so they can grow and thrive before going to their new "forever" homes.
Riley is also standing at stud.
Stud fee: $1,000.00 live pup guaranteed.
His sire is Jumping Julius Rodia; his is Dam Ledbetter's Precious. He comes from championship lines.
"Ledbetter's Teka (TEE-Kah)" RETIRED
She comes from a long line of champions and produces championship, high quality off-spring. Teka is very intelligent, athletic, extremely playful, very loving and willingly learns new things. Teka graduated at the top of her class from her Puppy Obedience Training with flying colors. As Teka has grown, she has become a wonderful and perfect addition to our family and we are thrilled to have her. Everynight she snuggles with us for a "tummy rub" before bedtime. What a darling, charming girl she is!
Her delightful personality makes us smile and laugh. Looking into her eyes is like looking right into her soul.
She is an incredible mother to her puppies. She is gentle and loving and makes sure that each puppy gets all the attention they want from her and is very careful not to sit or lay on them.
"Ledbetter's Precious" RETIRED
Precious is highly intelligent and learns things quickly. She can distinguish between "Shake", "Salute" and "High Five" and knows which paw to use for each command. Her gentle nature makes her the perfect mother of beautiful and loving puppies.
In her "spare" time, Precious loves to play with her toys, especially the balls which she loves to retrieve and have thrown for her again and again. She never tires of playing even if we do. The delight she brings to us, she instills in her puppies as well.
Precious is now officially retired. Her wonderful temperment and traits are passed down through her son, Ledbetter's Lord Riley.
