According to the American Kennel Club, gordon setters are an athletic and outdoorsy breed of dog with a bold, confident, demeanor. They are typically trained to hunt upland birds like quail, pheasant, grouse and chukkar.
However, this duo of dogs from South Carolina have focused their natural instincts on being trained to fish instead.
WYFF 4 News in Charleston heard rumors of Hampton Brand’s two fishing dogs, 9-year-old Buster and 5-year-old Boo, and decided to explore the story more.
He says the dogs had such a natural hunting instinct that they started trying to hunt fish they would see in shallow water.
Buster has grown into such a formidable fisherman that he’s caught several redfish and flounder, meanwhile the younger Boo is still just learning how to fish.
In addition to fishing, Brand says the dogs’ other hobbies include swimming with dolphins and chasing pigeons.
