"Wiley" is a very promising young dog. He started the spring of 2011 with a bang, winning a number of puppy stakes right out of the gate. He went off to summer camp and became a broke dog. He qualified for the 2011 GWPCA Nationals in his first Open broke dog stake. At Nationals, he won the Derby Classic, was third in the Field Futurity and Runner-up in the National Championship (a one hour stake). He finished his Field Championship one week later, with a 5 point major, at the tender age of 20 months.
"Wiley" has gone on to make history in 2013 for German Wirehaired Pointers. He is the FIRST of the breed to WIN the AKC Pointing Breeds Gun Dog Championship 1 hour stake. His legacy has yet to be written.
In the Fall of 2013, Wiley won the GWPCA's National Field Championship. He was also the GWPCA's #1 Open Gun Dog for 2013.

The first time Jim West made history at the AKC National Pointing Breeds Gun Dog Championships was in 2010, when he was the first handler to win both stakes in the same year..... & he did it with the same dog,
 2xCH/2xNGDC Slick's Cuttin' Wild, "Joker", a German Shorthair Pointer owned by Mike Patrick.
Joker was just over two years old when he accomplished this feat & went on to finish his Field Championship the next week. He also became an Amateur Field Champion.

GCH/NAFC/DC/AFC Ariel's Justa Gotta Go Now, "Louie"; a German Wirehaired Pointer owned by Bernee Brawn, was the Non-Retrieving Championship Runner-Up that year. He defeated 96 dogs in one stake, easily catapulting him to the GWPCA's #1 Open Gun Dog status for that year! "Louie" continues to be a force in the field trial world!!
