F.Ch. Muscle Shoals Jake (dog, lemon/white, w: April 2, 1920, FDSB 55621)
Muscle Shoal's Major (dog, liver/white, w: June 11, 1921)

"In the very last race that "Duquesne Nell" ran she met a foe worthy of her steel which disputed the Derby championship with her. The dog is question was "Muscle Shoals Jake", a white and lemon pointer dog, by "Ferris' Jake" out of "Harris' Lady Pauper". The dog was brought out by Major D. C. White, of Wheeler, Alabama. He was only started on one occasion before the Derby championship and ran unplaced, but in the latter event he was promptly recognized as a bold, corageous, indefatigable hunter; lofty in action and quite attractive. On game he did not show quite as much positiveness as one would like to see and in this respect he resembled his sire and also his grand sire "John Proctor", for both of thesse dogs were more or less slip-shod on game, as derbies. "Muscle Shoals Jake", however, was superior to these two in this respect, and here the heritage of his dam was in evidence, for "Harris' Lady Pauper" was an especially good bird dog." -- Hochwalt, 1923, The Modern Pointer


"As a first year all-age dog, "Muscle Shoals Jake" was far above th average. Among his wins of the season were second to "Doughboy" in the all-age stake of the Georgia trials, first to "Doughboy's" second in the Southern and first in the Free-for-all of the National Club, at Guerryton, Alabama. His three-hour race in the latter event, while not interspersed with a large number of finds, was nevertheless a clean-cut exhibition." -- Hochwalt, 1923, The Modern Pointer


"Muscle Shoal's Jake, Pointer, Male, Sire: Ferris' Jake, Dam: Harris' Lady Pauper, Winner National Free-For-All Championship, 1923, All-Age Stake, Owner: James C. Foster Jr., Handler: Ed Farrior, Winner National Free-For-All Championship, 1924, All-Age Stake, Owner: James C. Foster Jr., Handler: Mack Pritchette." -- Fielddog.com Website, 2002, Field Trial Winners Database


"The Field Trial Hall of Fame was initiated in 1954, and since that time, each year, deserving dogs and worthy field trial personalities have been elected." -- American Field: The Sportsman Journal, Website, 2002

"Induction to the Field Trial Hall of Fame is an honor. The dogs were inducted based on their performance in trials and their ability to produce winning offspring. The Field Trial Hall of Fame is part of the National Bird Dog Museum located in Grand Junction, Tennessee." -- UplandBirdDog.com Website, 2002

Five pointers were inducted into the Field Trial Hall of Fame in 1954. "Fishel's Frank", "John Proctor", "Luminary", "Mary Montrose", and "Muscle Shoal's Jake".
