SEPTEMBER 2017 LITTER IS HERE! (Click on "puppies for sale" to see examples of last year's puppies from same breeding.)
Rocky Creek Kennels raises German Shorthair Pointers from quality hunting stock. Being a small preserve and having many friends who enjoy hunting, my dogs have lots of opportunity to point and retrieve birds. We generally try to have one or two litters of puppies per year. These dogs are very easy to train and retrieve naturally. All my dogs love to hunt, but they are also happy sitting in your lap curled up watching TV! We are located in Marianna, FL, which is about 20 miles from Alabama or Georgia. Puppies are $500. They will have had their shots and been wormed. They have also had their tails docked and dew claws removed. They've had extensive socialization. If you are interested in one of my puppies, please call, text or email!

In October of 2016 we purchased Clyde from Mr. Mike and Sally Sims. My father and I have always looked forward to hunting over a GSP and the dream finally came true. Mike and Sally were more than accommodating when it came to making arrangements to pick Clyde up and he was everything they said he would be. We wanted to write a review just based on the great experience we had while getting Clyde, but we waited to see how he trained and hunted first.
Fast forward to today we have trained Clyde to recall, woah, sit, stay, and retreive he is also trained to respond to a whistle and an e-collar among other commands related to hunting. They are clearly breeding a quality dog, his intelligence level is beyond what we were expecting it to be. His drive to hunt birds is astounding. We live in South Florida and frequently hunt Doves, Ducks, Snipe, and Quail. Clyde does exceptionally well with pointing and retrieving all of the bird species mentioned. Clyde has the most endurance I've seen out of any dog I have been afield with. On a cool day in the snipe fields he will hunt at a high pace for 3-4 hours, weighing in at 55 lbs he was bred to be a quality athlete; Aside from his high octane performance his shape, size, and muscular definition also proves this to be true.
Furthermore, throughout the training process Mr. Sims has been extremely helpful with any questions we have had regarding training pointers (we've only owned labs previously).
Over a year later and many hunts already in the books we could not be happier with the quality of the dogs Mr. and Mrs. Sims are producing. I would recommend anybody that was interested in purchasing a GSP to contact Mr. Mike and Sally Sims at Rocky Creek Kennels.

Well- we did it again! Last October Sadie joined our family (our first GSP) and what a year it has been! She has been such a blessing to our family and we wanted her to have a companion! We reached out to Mike and Sally again, and Bristol joined our family two weeks ago! This experience was just as good if not better than the first one. They kept us up-to-date when Sugar was expecting, sent pictures as soon as they were born, and updated us until we picked her up! Mike and Sally are wonderful people and we are glad to call them our friends. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a GSP! We live in Central Florida would make that 4 1/2 drive any day to get a puppy from them!

Mr. and Mrs. Sims made the experience of buying a puppy pleasurable as well as simple. They are both very friendly people and are easy to talk to. They are very informative about their puppies and make sure you have all the information that you would need to know about buying a puppy from them. They are always available if you need anything. The puppies turn out to be great hunting dogs especially if you start training them at an early age. I would 100% recommend Rocky Creek Kennels to any of my friends.

Where do I even begin? We had the BEST experience purchasing our GSP puppy from Mike and Sally. I contacted RC Kennels through email and the same day they returned my email and even sent me pictures of the pups they had available to my cell phone. Being that I am an ER nurse in Tallahassee with a very busy schedule, they did everything that they could to work around my schedule to come visit the puppies. We went the very next day because we knew that these were the breeders we wanted to purchase from. When we arrived, they brought us into their home as if we had known them our whole lives. Mike was kind enough to show us the parents of our puppy and what they could do. We were amazed at the intelligence and skill his dogs had, and were excited for the future that we have with our puppy. They are extremely honest, fair and trustworthy breeders! You will get everything that they guarantee you. Our puppy has beautiful markings, he has such a calm personality and has acclimated to our home with ease. Already we can tell he is very smart and LOVES to be praised. We are so very happy with our purchase and are looking forward to hunting and loving our puppy for his entire life. We hope to purchase from Mike and Sally in the future!

We had the best experience buying our 8 wk old GSP *Scout* from Mike and Sally. They answered any questions we had and sent us pictures as we asked for them when we were in the waiting stage. Our pup was (and still is) clean and healthy and plays great with our 4 year old. No doubt we would buy from them again.

My son bought a pup from Mr. Sims in July of this year 2016, he's been everything Mr. Sims represented him to be and then some. He is very intelligent and loves to retrieve, he also has great conformation and good coloring. Anyone considering a German Shorthaired Pointer for hunting purposes or a pet should call Mr. Sims and make an appointment to see his dogs and kennels, his facilities are clean and his dogs are amazing.
Thank You Mr. Sims

I loved every second of the time I was waiting on my GSP because it was so interactive, the good friendly experience from these people was like coming home and having your family greet you, from the time I found my puppy they were sending pictures and answering all of my questions, rocky creek kennel and preserve really knows what they are doing so if you are looking for a gsp look no further!

I am not sure that there would be enough space for me to tell you what an amazing experience we had with Mike and Sally at Rocky Creek Kennel and Preserve. My husband was doing some research on German Short Hairs and came across their website. He got in touch with Mike and Sally. After several phone calls and text messages we made the decision to get a puppy from them (we could already tell). They kept us up to date through Katie's pregnancy and called right after they were born. We drove from Minneola to Marianna the weekend after they were born. It was well worth the 4.5 hour drive! After spending an hour or so with Mike and Sally, we knew we had made the right decision! As their grandson would say, "you have the "grunt" puppy. Sally explained how she was sure our chosen puppy was getting everything she needed to compete with the larger pups. In the 7 weeks in between our first trip and picking up Sadie, they sent updates, pictures, and answered my ridiculous amount of text messages! We have only had her home with us 3 days but can tell she is very intelligent already. She has even pointed in our yard! We would HIGH RECOMMEND Mike and Sally to anyone that asked! I wouldn't be surprised if we get our Sadie a sister from them at some point!

We picked up our pup 2 months ago and has been the best dog. Great with my girls who are 3&2. Very intelligent dog, very easy to train and completely friendly. John was awesome in communication. Let us know when one was pregnant and started payments for one. 😊

We had the opportunity to hunt with Mike Sims and saw first hand what his dogs could do so well, which is find birds, hold a point, retrieve birds and follow commands. His kennel is very clean, the dogs and puppys are well cared for. Mike was very informative regarding handling and training GSPs. Anyone looking for high quality GSP puppys will be pleased with Rocky Creek Kennels and Mike Sims!
