A little about us: We are a large family, predominately of the furry kind. In addition to raising German Shorthaired Pointers, we also share our home and land with many rescue pets, a few goats, and chickens (why I chose chickens and bird dogs, I often wonder!) We make our home in Boonville, NC, just south of Elkin; north of Winston Salem. We are easily accessed by interstate, yet far enough away to be 'in the middle of nowhere'... It's wonderful and we love it!
In 2011, we were very excited to have the amazing opportunity to add a new stud dog to our program. Not only is he stunning, but he has incredible bloodlines, too! We're very pleased to have added Hege Haus blood to our kennel.
Early 2012 brought us the Czech bloodlines in our boy, Judson. Currently one test away from obtaining his JH, we are amazed at how calm, intelligent, and gorgeous Judson has turned out! It has been a real treat watching him grow! Because I am a sucker for floppy ears and soulful eyes, early 2012 also brought us Jinx, a puppy I loved from the minute I saw him. An incredible dude, a snuggler, and a snap in the field. He breezed right through his AKC testing at 7 months and wow-ed bystanders at his field work, mind collection, age, size and personality. Love this boy and so happy he joined us!
2013 is already blowing my mind with possibilities. We're excited about some upcoming prospects and cannot wait for the moment when we can announce the news!!
All of our puppies this year will be nothing shy of incredible, blending proven, sturdy American lines with the old foundation imported European lines. The first puppies have already lived up to our expectations, proving to have natural ability galore and tons of intelligence.
This year it is our goal to obtain a minimum of a Junior Hunt title on ALL of our gang, since it is our utmost priority to raise a dual quality German Shorthaired Pointers. We want our beautiful dogs to look just as lovely in the field as they do on the couch :)
All of our puppies come to you AKC registered, microchipped, vaccinated with age appropriate vaccinations, dewormed twice and treated for coccidia. We send our puppies home with a care kit, which includes a gallon of food (we feed and recommend Diamond Naturals Large breed), a toy that smells like littermates to assisst with transitioning, and a wing to furthur your pup's training at home. All of our puppies are started on wings, introduced to water, socialized with other dogs and cats, and noise desensitized. We do our very best to provide you with a solid puppy that has tons of confidence.
If you have any additional questions, please dont hesitate to ask them! We love meeting new people and never mind answering questions :) If you just want to see hundreds of adorable puppy pictures, look us up on facebook! Thanks for reading, and we look forward to hearing from you!
