The word “atos” is of Portuguese origin and means “action” or “movement” in English. His name fits him well. Atos has grace and power in the field. Atos has an exceptionally friendly disposition and is “an angel in the house and absolutely a devil in the field” with a wonderful nose, great prey drive and stamina. He runs with a high head and is beautiful on point. I got Atos from the legendary Francis Maudet of France who sired him out of the Great Gatsby and a wonderful Italian bitch named Lara from Remo Nicoli. When I got Atos from France he was 6 months old and for the next 6 months he earned his UKC Gun title here in the U.S. and has also returned to France where I ran him in spring trials all before his first birthday. During this time Atos won Gun Braces and the cup for the first annual “Léon Le Louët Memorial Bécasse Trial” in Louisiana. It was a satisfying moment for him to have his first win trialing on wild Woodcock similar to situations of his native countries. Atos also had very nice first and second hunting seasons on grouse, pheasant, huns, prairie chickens, woodcock and bobwhite quail in Georgia, Louisiana, Kansas, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Texas, and Montana. His father Gatsby is one of the best the breed has ever seen in the field and his son takes after him for sure. Here are a few photos and an article on Gatsby in the March 2016 issue of the French Club de l’Epagneul Breton magazine. Atos has now earned his “grand champion of the field” title with CAC champion wins in Iowa (brace wild), Minnesota (brace liberated), Georgia (liberated solo), Texas (solo wild) and Illinois (liberated solo). He also won CACT with his only barrage run with a win in Texas.
Honors for Atos’ father CH Gatsby du mas D’Eyraud: 43 CACT, 28 CACIT, 8 RCACIT. Autumn champion; Spring Champion; International Working Champion; 4 times winner of Open de France; Winner European Cup 2015 Continental; Winner Championship of 2015 AICEB propelling France to the champion country; Winner of the 2015 Mediterranean Cup; 2015 World Champion! Atos has participated in NAVHDA hunt test earning Utility test II. Atos has run in several FCI trials in France and Spain also earning several excellent ratings in spring trials. Atos has further participated in both walking and horseback AKC trials earning his FC and AFC titles. He earned 3rd walking Nationals Gun Dog Championship in 2019 and runner-up in horseback National Amateur Gun Dog Championship in 2021.
And here is a quote about Atos’ Italian mother: “Lara del Cecchetto at the European competition Feb 2015. The Italian team: We climbed on the podium! Thanks to Lara’s Cecchetto of sig. Nicoli that getting the CAC-CACIT crowned Italy with an important place in the European Cup – 3rd.” In October 2018 Remo Nicoli returned with Lara to the AICEB World EB championships and earned 1st female. Lara proved once again she still has it after not competing in the AICEB since 2015.
