About Spin Top Kennel

** I DO NOT have birds for sale**

****PUPPIES*** If you would like to reserve a puppy PLEASE send an email directily to or call 256-232-9142 IF you have already reserved a puppy I will get that puppy for you ASAP**

German Shorthaired Pointers, Brittanys and BOYKINS (my "little brown dogs") all trained and tried on the farm. I occasionally have pups or possibly some on the way...and occasionally I will have started dogs. Multiple references with names and numbers are in the field!

**My dogs are bred to hunt but also make GREAT family pets and great pal-around companions. References are available**

** The dogs are pictured on this site with the PEDIGREES! **

German Shorthaired Pointers: If things go well I will hopefully have available pups during 2016. The pups will cost $700.

A deposit of $100 IS REQUIRED for GSPs and Brittanys; a $200 deposit for boykins . The pups will be ready to leave at 6 weeks old and will have registration paper, micro-chipped, vaccinated, de-wormed regularly, tails and dew-claws docked. They will be weaned and eating DRY Purina Puppy Chow. I can forward more emails and pictures from satisfied owners than you will care to see or read. And there are comments on this site about many of the pups and dogs that have come from my kennel. I truly do appreciate those comments. These pups will make WONDERFUL family companions as well as NICE birddogs in the field. My pups go to people that use them for a variety of things; strictly for hiking-jogging-cycling companion-pets, for hunting quail, pheasants, dove, ducks/geese, blood trailing to locate deer, for antler sheds, for drug and explosives detection, and who knows what else. They are truly VERSATILE dogs. ALL of my pups come with FULL-UNLIMITED REGISTRATION. When I sell a puppy I sell ALL-OF-IT. And, I sell to people that keep them inside the house our OUTSIDE in kennels. The buyer IS the owner and where the buyers keep their pups is THEIR BUSINESS!! Who would BUY a puppy and not love and care for it?


Boykin Spaniels: I will not have any boykin babies until spring of 2016.

My boykin stud Roux is available for stud services. He is OFA Clear --Price $500 .... He is pictured with the pedigrees on this site. He turns 'em out that make a SPLASH!!! His pups perform well on both land and water.

Brittanys: Ready to leave hopefully by early April-2016

I have MULTIPLE references and past litter pictures from most of my crosses. If you are interested please E-MAIL directly to: or call 256-232-9142. (Athens, AL) If no answer please leave a message...I WILL return your call or email.

***All of my dogs/pups come with either AKC, CKC, BSS, or FDSB registration paper, micro-chip, tails and dew-claws docked, vaccinated and dewormed regularly. The PEDIGREES are listed on this site.***

The deposit: It just causes so much trouble when someone actually DID NOT want a puppy..and others have been REJECTED. I TOTALLY understand that BAD things can happen, and I do not wish to sound mean....but ...Please KNOW if you DO or DO NOT want a puppy and if you want a MALE or a FEMALE....please???? And, please reach down deep and find the GUTS to tell me if you have backed-out from buying a puppy. That does not take much effort.

The picks are determined in the order that the names are received. I always send pictures of the pups for the buyer to view. Most buyers pick from the pictures, but it is just fine when it is your time to pick for you to come for a SCHEDULED visit to pick a puppy. 256-232-9142

If there is a need I will work with the buyer in getting the puppy to his or her home. I have great over-the-road contacts that can deliver your pup right to your home for a VERY REASONABLE fee.

** STUD SERVICES: $500 Check out the STUD DOG Pedigrees on this site...

German Shorthaired Pointers: Hank, Rex, and Lord are colored liver/roan/patched/ticked.

Brittany: (Ace- is colored liver/white)

Setter: (Sarge--Tri-colored black/white/tan)

Boykin Spaniel: Roux...of course a little brown dog...RICH liver-colored.


I think my puppy prices are very affordable for the caliber of puppy that you will be getting. You might find them cheaper....but cheaper is NOT ALWAYS better. And you might find them priced HIGHER that are not as good! That will be your choice. I KNOW I could get MORE...but my prices are what I believe to be fair. Please let me know if I can help in ANY way with a puppy.

The Spin Top Kennel was inspected on August 20, 2015 by an inspector with The American Kennel Club. (And is ALWAYS open and ready for an UNANNOUNCED AKC inspection.) My dogs were checked and scanned and the facilities and records were checked at detailed level. I am happy to say I DID NOT and have NEVER received ANY negative mark(s). The inspection record may be viewed at the kennel upon request by ANY buyer or potential buyer. I got such nice compliments about the condition of the pups, studs, females and about the facilities. The facilities are all "home-made" with labor and love. There is not one thing fancy here...EXCEPT the dogs! And YES my dogs live in the kennels with access to the run-yards. My females and pups live in the whelping-building. We just strive to run the kennel with integrity. Remember, please call ahead BEFORE you come to pick your puppy...with a smile! 256-232-9142

I SINCERELY THANK YOU for visiting this website and reading about my dogs. And MANY thanks to the HOST for this avenue of exposure. REMEMBER: send E-MAILS directly to

May GOD Bless...Keep... and Protect ...and May God CONTINUE TO BLESS AMERICA!

We got our Boykin Callie from David last Spring. She was 6 months old when the Bird seasons started here in Oregon Sept 1st. The seasons ended Jan 31st. The kids & I hunted this Little Brown dog just shy of 60 days during the season. 1/3 of the time for upland Quail, Pheasant, Chukar. 2/3 Ducks & Geese. What a dog she is. We could not be happier. She even retrieved a few Cottontail's and helped my Daughter track down an Elk she shot. Callie was not sure what we expected her to do once she found the Elk !!!! But she found it. This is the only Boykin we have had but this dog from Spin Top sure is the all around dog that the breed is supposed to be. If you want a Boykin I would talk to David : )

We love our female GSP that we got from Spintop. She is gorgeous and a great hunter already. My son has had her trailing deer hides, and she runs with her nose to ground. She is about 5 months old now.
Spintop Kennels are easy to work with and very nice.

We purchased a GSP from Spin Top Kennel. She is a quality dog and we are very happy with the purchase. David was very knowledgeable and helpful. We'd recommend Spin Top Kennel.

We got a GSP for Christmas that was 6 weeks old. We had this planned for months for our boys and my husband. The excitement grew more and more every day! My husband went hunting last weekend and that would make Aubree (the puppy) about 9 weeks at the time. After he got a deer we decided to take her out with the kids and see how she would do tracking the blood trail of a deer. We pointed out the blood and she got so excited! She couldn't wait to follow the scent! It all came so natural to her and at such a young age. The excitement she had when she got to the deer made us excited to watch her grow and do this over and over! David was great to work with and was honest and trusting about the whole process! We even drove almost 4 hours on Christmas Eve to pick our puppy up. David worked with us to make sure we were comfortable with everything and had the right timing! Definitely worth it all and we can't wait to see what Aubree does fully grown and trained! Highly recommend!

I love David! and his family are very sweet also. he was so much help with picking our our pup, Remi. she is a black-roan GSP. she is 8 weeks now and is already "pointing" and "stalking" her toys when she's playing. she also already knows how to sit on command! wonderful breeder, recommend highly! hopefully get another GSP pup from him in the future.

If you are looking to buy a GSP, I highly recommend Spin Top Kennel. David is very knowledgeable and works really well with you to get you the type of puppy you're looking to buy. Our GSP, Avery, is now 1 year old and we absolutely love her! She is very intelligent, full of personality, and a loyal companion. Avery is great with other dogs and a great family pet.

Rocky is 13 weeks old and has learned so much he has so much potential. As far as a hunting buddy and a family pet this was the best thing I've ever done we are so impressed with what David and spin-top-kennel produced for us. Thanks and David and I've got my 2nd deposit ready.

I've had my GSP pup,Tripp, for exactly one week now and he has progressed amazingly in such a short amount of time. He is already pointing and I will begin obedience training soon. Mr. Holt was so great in helping me pick out my dog and walking me through the registration process. Would recommend him to anyone and I will not buy a bird dog from anyone else!

I first contacted David in September 2014 about his puppies. From our first conversation I knew I would be getting a dog from him. He was so patient and kind answering all of my questions. Our female has been such a great dog and has great instincts for a bird dog. She is first and foremost a member of the family but loves to hunt anything and everything (birds don't land in our yard anymore). In August of 2015, we decided to add another GSP to our family and we never even considered anyone but David. Just a few months later we brought home a male. He has been a wonderful addition and shows the same great hunting instincts our female does.

I began the search for a German Shorthair Pointer in March of this year. I contacted a man nearby that I heard of, through word of mouth. He then recommended David Holt. When I had my first conversation with David, I knew I would be getting a dog from him and only him. He was very thorough in answering all of my inquiries and also very kind. He added me to a list and told me to keep in touch and boy did I! I asked question after question and he always responded almost instantaneously. The puppies that we were on the waiting list for, were born in September. We went for a visit to meet David, see the puppies, and the kennel in early October. I was very impressed with the facility, especially considering it is all homemade. The dogs, all breeds, were all well taken care of and beautiful. A lot less barking than I expected too, considering the amount of dogs that he has! He let us play with those sweet puppies for a good half hour prior to our tour of the grounds. Once it was time to walk around, he gave a little background on each dog. At that point, it was obvious, he genuinely cares for each one of them. In our guide through the kennel, we came across a female that was just over a year old. Her name was Brandy, she was gorgeous! She was 14 months old, very quiet and smaller in stature than a lot of the adult GSP's. It was love at first sight. My boyfriend asked David if he would be willing to let her go even though she wasn't a puppy. David agreed, we were ecstatic! We picked her up the following weekend. She is now known as Ella Rose. She brings so much joy to us and our family everyday. We are all truly thankful to have met such a wonderful man and gotten the perfect dog for us. David will be a lifelong friend to us, I have no doubt. Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. If you're looking for a great dog, from a great person that knows exactly what he is doing, then you're in the right place. Thank you, David, for everything!
