We are a small breeder of hunting and performance GSPs located in East Texas. We currently have 6 GSPs and through them we have been able to learn so much about the hunting/sporting dog world, the breed as a whole, and ourselves as handlers. We train/compete in a variety of venues, and as such, hunt tests both pointing dog & retriver, conformation, dock diving, CGC, trick dog, agility, barn hunt, and fast cat. Our dogs all hunt and have titles in multiple venues because we believe in the versatility of this breed.
I was introduced to this breed in 2013 my husband Justin had told me about how great they were. He hunted behind GSPs for years and even raised a few for himself along with a small quail operation for TPWL he really enjoyed his dogs. I bought my first GSPs in late 2013, they ended up going on to be guide dogs and were sold for such. In 2014 we got Lady our foundation bitch and primary hunting dog. She has been our #1 ever since. She produced our first 3 litters in 2018, 2019 & 2020. We have since retired her and hunt her a little. We kept a daughter of hers to replace her from the 2020 litter and are so excited about her! Justin's future goal is to get back into the quail business so do not be surprised if you see a "Birds" tab added here. He has a passion for gamebirds.
As a breeder I strive to preserve the instincts and abilities of the GSP, while taking temperament, ability, health, and structure into consideration. The goal is for our dogs to be able to "do it all" but still have that "Off Switch" in the house and be a loving family companion. We health test and temperament test all of our breeding dogs and guarantee our puppies to be healthy and have the desired temperament for everyone. We raise them to be bold, social, friendly, playful, obedient, loyal and loving dogs.
If you have any questions about our dogs or the breed in general, don't hesitate to get in touch! I am usually able to respond quickly, and I love every chance to educate people about the breed.
About the breed:
The versatile, medium-sized German Shorthaired Pointer is an enthusiastic gundog of all trades who thrives on vigorous exercise, positive training, and a lot of love. GSP people call their aristocratic companions the 'perfect pointer.' Male German Shorthaired Pointers stand between 23 and 25 inches at the shoulder and weigh anywhere from 55 to 70 pounds; females run smaller. The dark eyes shine with enthusiasm and friendliness. Built to work long days in the field or at the lake, GSPs are known for power, speed, agility, and endurance. 'Noble' and 'aristocratic' are words often used to describe the overall look. GSPs make happy, trainable pets who bond firmly to their family. Dog traits that can be difficult for some people to manage - Common complaints in breed-specific groups include barking, separation frustration, and leash reactivity. If you are looking for a dog to hold down the couch this is not the breed for you. If you are looking for an active companion who is down for weekend hikes, swimming, games of fetch, virtually any activity then they might be the breed for you! They NEED training and direction. This is not a breed you can take home, leave the house once a week to walk around the block and call it a day. You have to actively work to create the dog you want to live with. They have all the right genetic traits for an awesome social adventure dog and great family pet. They are naturally social, willing to please, up for anything. But you need to put in the time channeling those good traits. It is work, it’s not something that just happens all on its own.
