INTCh Agertoften Scott

Scott was from the 1994-litter by Mohawk (Giles del Bocia – Quenta) out of Agertoften Isabella (Urlev – Lydehøjs Line) and probably the best dog in that very good litter. Owned and handled by Geir B. Larssen in Harstad, Norway. Scott’s best trial results were 2 x 1.AK + 2.VK, 4.VK, 5.VK. On the bench he was Norwegian, Swedish and International Champion.

Scott on point. Notice the Ptarmigan in front of him.

Agertoften Scott, very close to my ideal of a pointer. The Norwegian “pointer encyclopaedia” Halvard Toften called him a “sculpture of a dog”, and in the field he is a stylish, excellent ranging pointer with great bird work.

Scott as a young dog, just a few months after he arrived in Norway.

This is not Scott, but Aage Sylvest Larsen’s famous dog Zitas Bob (born 1949, bred by legendary Peter Jensen). Though it is a fair way back, Zitas Bob is both behind Scott’s paternal and maternal side something like 26 times (7th – 13th generations). It might not mean anything, as Scott is born 45 years later, but there certainly is a strong resemblance!

Dierbmes Varres Drake, a son of Scott & Chiba (Lurudals Raj – Westpoints Lissie). Drake was bred in Norway, but sold to Iceland. He was the second Scott offspring sold to Iceland, the first was Karacanis Donna (see two of her siblings below).

This pup was a son of Scott & Lurudals Lille-Gro (Heggebakkens Fant – Lurudals Mia) called Karacanis Gilbert. Owned by Halvard Toften.

Geir with Scott’s daughter Karacanis Bella, bred and owned by Øystein Nilsen. Bella had 1.prize both in Novice and Open trials.. She was a litter sister of Gilbert and Donna, and also bred some good dogs.
