Mastiff Rights 24-year-old Video Game Wrong: Includes Genuinely Helpful Hunting Dog in Remington Great American Bird Hunt for Wi

For Immediate Release

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - Nov. 18, 2009 - After more than two decades of being mocked by man's best friend, gamers across the country are discovering the joy of hunting with a truly helpful dog in Remington Great American Bird Hunt for Wii™

Rockford, the friendly Labrador retriever in Remington Great American Bird Hunt, not only refrains from laughing at hunters who aren't having the best day, he lends a helping paw. When called with a special power-up, Rockford races off into the brush to flush flocks of bonus birds into range.

"Here at Mastiff, we felt like man's best friend wasn't getting his due in hunting games," said Bill Swartz, Head Woof of Mastiff. "Our four-legged friends deserve a virtual representative they can be proud of--one who upholds canine values like loyalty, obedience and hard work. Rockford is a great example for aspiring hunting dogs everywhere."

"Woof, woof, woof, wag, wag, sniff, sniff, woof!" added Rockford.

Remington Great American Bird Hunt is now available at retail locations nationwide. For more information, visit the official Web site at

Note to Editors: Brand-new screenshots featuring Rockford can be found on the MMPR press center (, inside the Mastiff folder.
