I am on the prowl for a new addition to my family. I am looking to get a puppy sometime in early spring (end of April or early May). I am deploying very soon so seeing and selecting a pup will be a challenge for my wife and I. If there are breeders out there that would share pictures and vids of litters to help select a pup from birth until 6 to 8 weeks that would be wonderful.
Now that the problems are out of the way. I am leaning towards another male, but would like to be able to view the puppies before being tied to a gender. I prefer large shorthairs. Liver and brown patched and ticked is the preferred coloring for me. Really the darker the better. Hunting/ family breeding lines is what I am looking for. Dog needs to be energetic and tireless in the field but managable at home also. I am not looking for a dog that is bred for the ring.
I currently own two Charlie (7) and Laila (5). I am a hunter however due to my career I seem to miss out on most seasons due to deployments. I am interested in continuing to train and hunt these dogs. I also am trying to join the North Carolina GSP rescue. My wife is also very into the breed and understands/ appreciates all of the work and responsibilities of the breed. I feed Purina Pro Plan Performance to both of my dogs. I have close to a half acre fenced as well as 3/4 of an acre that is not. I spay and nueter my animals normally around the year to year and a half mark. I have two vets one close to me for normal routine chots and checkups and my primary vet that is farther away that I use for all questions and major problems. My primary vet is Dr. Spindel in Clemmons, NC. I will gladly send his email address to any breeder looking to validate my ownership record.
If anyone knows of a breeder or has a litter planned for this time period please leave a message along with a link to your website or email. I know I am picky but my dogs are my kids and I want to make sure I am selecting only the finest. I am not necessarily tied to a breeder close to NC I am willing to travel to the dog. The mid west, northeast and south west are all well with in my driving range. Thanks for reading my book I hope I recieve as detailed information as I have given.
Thanks Emily !
Fieldfine Not only breeds exceptional show Dogs we have also bred Multiple Junior , Senior & Master Hunters ,Field Trial Placing and Personal Hunting dogs.Something perhaps many people on here do not know since they think we just breed "ShowDogs"
A Majority of our dogs are sold to personal hunters so although they do not boast all the Titles they sure can Hunt!
I would be happy to provide several references from those owners We do complete health testing on all our breeding stock and guarantee for it as well.
Good luck to you in search for the perfect Puppy
Well, Retta just came into heat yesterday. We will be breeding her to Doc. The pups would be ready to go to their new homes around mid March. All the females pups are spoken for, but will some reservations for males yet.
Both dogs have proven themselves in the grouse woods as very capable hunting companions. Doc will be tested at the Senior level in the spring.
