Martin Riggs’ (played by Mel Gibson) character in the Lethal Weapon series was a crazed and reckless pursuer of bad guys. He was called a renegade because he didn’t follow the rules. He was considered to be a loose cannon because he acted on impulse and gut instinct. He didn’t worry about ramifications; he just did the job how he thought it should be done with little regard for the consequences. While Riggs may have seemed “mad” sometimes, he was exceptionally effective at his job. He WAS a lethal weapon!
Our Riggs is living up to that persona in a big way. He throws himself at his work with gusto and reckless abandon with a level of enthusiasm that never seems to fade. He’s a flurry of energy and always stands at the ready for the next field, the next bird contact, the next water retrieve…whatever he’s working on at the moment… and he does it with intensity and style. Sometimes you don’t know if the name you pick for a new pup is the right one, but this time we definitely picked right!
Riggs parents are INT CH, VC Sharp Shooters Marimba Rhythm and INT CH, VC Sharp Shooters NW Mr. Motion MH. He is a product of line-breeding around one of our foundations studs, INT CH, VC Sharp Shooters Prairie Dance MH (aka Tango). Riggs couldn’t be more like Tango in appearance and performance. Like his human inspiration, our Riggs also has a softer side . He’s affectionate and isn’t shy about bugging for an extra pet when he’s in the house and thankfully he’s more cooperative than his grandsire.
Riggs is available for stud to approved dams, which includes Hip certification, no teeth, bite, or eye conditions, current vaccinations, a Brucella Titer test and acceptable NAVHDA, AKC, NSTRA or other hunting dog trial results.
