Information on the Breed
 
The German Shorthaired Pointer is especially admired for its temperament and trainability.  This breed makes an outstanding family companion, relating well to children, your firends who come to visit, and other dogs.  The typical Shorthair is outgoing but not aggressive, although her certainly will let the world know when a stranger knocks on your door.  He is anxious to please and responds well to consistent training both in the home and in the field where he shines as an upland game finder, stylish pointer, and retriever.

Keep in mind that the German Shorthaired Pointer is an athlete.  Although he adapts readily to almost any living situation, he needs consistent exercise to keep in condition and to burn off excess energy.  The nature exhuberance of a young Shorthair can make him difficult to live with if he is kept confined and not exercised.  Shorhairs bond readily to the family and can show separation anxiety if left along for long periods.  It is strongly recommended that owners crate-train house dogs so that they may be left alone.
 
German Shorthaired Pointers, in addition to their use as hunting companions, have acquitted themselves admirably in the show ring, in field and obedience trials, in search and rescue work, in drug and bomb detection, in agility competition, and as therapy dogs.

Puppies

Our puppies are raising in a loving, farm environment.  Puppies are sold by contract with health certification.
 
We breed very selectively and generally have one litter a year.  If we do not have puppies, we will be glad to refer you to another breeder.
 
We will only sell to responsible dog lovers who will ensure proper stimulation, environment, and care for their Shorthair.
