I received my GSP from Wirebridge Kennels this past February, and all I can say is, it was one of the best decisions I've ever made! I cannot express enough how happy I am and how grateful I am to have met Ivy and her husband. They truly love the breed and more so their dogs! After seeing their ad on Gun Dog Breeders, I decided to visit them on site before making any decisions. As an animal lover it was very important for me to be absolutely sure that my dog wasn't going to come from a puppy mill. Upon arriving, it took all of five minutes for me to decide this where I want my dog to come from. They arguably have the cleanest kennels and most well kept dogs I've ever seen. Most importantly, the dogs there are HAPPY! My puppy is now 14 weeks old, and is one healthy, handsome boy! I remain in contact with the Willoughbys, and give them regular updates and pictures of my puppy, like I said, they truly love their dogs! If you are considering getting a GSP, I highly suggest you check out Wirebridge Kennels, you will not be disappointed!

Wylie is our first GSP and I can't say enough about how beautiful, smart and loving this puppy is. He's almost 6 months old now. He's learning more and more everyday. We have a 10yr old Chihuahua mix, and even with Wylie's high energy level, he's learned to take it easy with our older guy, which made us very happy. Ivy and Russell are so great to work with. We still keep in touch with updates on Wylie. We highly recommend Wire Bridge Kennels if you are looking for a GSP pup.

Payton is our first dog and we literally could not have had a better experience. Ivy and Russell obviously care very much for every one of their dogs. Ivy did a great job of responded to our emails and we looked forward to the weekly pictures she would send us.
Payton is a very healthy, intelligent puppy. We love her very much and already have recommended Wire Bridge Kennels to others.

We began our dog search back during the summer knowing that we wanted a hunting dog but also a dog that would be a part of our family. We decided pretty fast that we wanted a German Shorthaired Pointer and after researching the breed found out that they fit in line with what we were looking for—a smart, loyal family dog as well an extremely well trained hunting dog. We started looking online for a breeder and randomly one night in early October found Wire Bridge Kennels. By the next morning, Ivy had emailed us back that they had just had a litter a week prior to my email. As soon as we saw the pictures, we knew we would be getting our newest addition from Wire Bridge Kennels. From the first email until we picked up our puppy, Ivy was quick to answer any questions we had and always sent us weekly updates with pictures on how our little man, Cash, was doing. The Willoughbys are extremely knowledgeable on the German Shorthaired breed and told us different ways to train our new puppy and what to expect with the breed. We picked Cash up in the middle of November and now, a month later, we could not imagine life without him. Within a week, he already knew how to sit, lay, shake and take his treats “easy”. Everywhere we take him people talk about how beautiful he is and ask where we got him. Of course, the first thing we brag about is Wire Bridge Kennels and how extremely nice, helpful and down to earth Ivy and Russell are. Even a month later, we still keep in touch with them, sending them updates on how Cash is doing. We would highly recommend Wire Bridge Kennels as the place to get your German Shorthaired Pointer. We plan to get another one in the future and already know where we will be getting our second puppy from!

When I began my search for a dog, I knew that a GSP was the breed for me. After reading all of the amazing reviews on this site, I knew that Wire Bridge Kennels was definitely the place I would be getting a dog from. The entire process was an amazing pleasure, and Ivy is on top of it! She was always quick to respond to any questions I had, and she never got frustrated with me for how often I was asking for pictures. When I went to pick Harley up, I fell in love instantly. She is now almost 4 months old and is easily my best friend. She is crazy smart, sweet, and loyal. She learned so fast, too! She knows many commands, including sit, shake, stay, and lay down. Ivy is an incredible person to work with, and the kennels were immaculate. Every dog there was gorgeous, too. I would recommend Wire Bridge 150%

We bought our dog Lucy from Wire Bridge Kennels and we are extremely pleased with our experience. Ivy is so wonderful! From the minute we made our initial inquiry and then put our deposit, she always kept us up to date by sending texts, pictures and emails updating us on our puppy. My family would look forward to her weekly pictures to see how the dog had grown and changed. This was the best experience we have ever had in purchasing a dog. Our dog is very healthy, happy and super sweet. If anyone is interested in buying a GSP, I would definitely recommend buying it from them.

When I finally decided on getting a puppy for myself, I knew I wanted a short-hair, but I didn't know there was such a great breeder here in Georgia. From the first time I spoke to Ivy, I knew I would buy my dog from Wire Bridge. I went to visit the kennel and meet the Willoughby's and loved everything. My mistake was not bringing my checkbook to put a deposit down right then. After having to wait for the next litter, I chose my puppy, Hank (now Breck) and couldn't be happier with my decision. Within the first few months, he could sit, stay, heel, fetch on command, and was fully potty trained. These dogs are extremely smart and very loving. He's really become part of our family. I highly recommend Wire Bridge - just call them and you'll be won over just like I was. Thanks to Ivy and Russell for breeding such great puppies!

I began my search for a German Shorthaired Pointer in the Summer of 2012. Knowing nothing about the breed, I was completely clueless as to what I was looking for when it came to color, hunting capability and the breeds personality. This is when I stumbled upon Wire Bridge Kennels. Ivy answered the first time I called and explained to me everything I needed and wanted to know about this awesome breed. Following this conversation, I knew this was where I would be purchasing my puppy from and put a deposit in the mail ASAP. She was very kind and helped me in every way possible to find exactly what I was looking for.
I purchased Wesson from Wire Bridge Kennels on December 14, 2012. From the day the puppies were born, Ivy sent pictures weekly, if not daily, so I could see the puppies as they grew and changed. When I picked Wesson up, he was everything I wanted and more. I really enjoyed meeting, both Ivy and Russell in person. They were both extremely kind and gave me great information about what to expect with a GSP and some wonderful training tips. Their Kennels were immaculate and you could tell that they really loved and cared about each and everyone of their dogs. Wesson is now 5 1/2 months old and is already potty trained, sits, lays down, kennels with ease, has no problem around a gun, fetches on command, and heels without a leash, which I think is outstanding for a puppy his age. These are some of the smartest puppies I have ever worked with. I have not one single regret of purchasing Wesson from Wire Bridge Kennels and would recommend them to anyone in search of the perfect German Shorthaired Pointer. Thanks Again Ivy and Russell!!

I was searching for a dog for my girlfriend, T.J., who lost her family dog, Chloe around a year ago. While we were both doing research on different breeds we came to a decision on German Short-Haired Pointers. Not long after making that decision T.J. stumbled upon Ivy and her kennel. She was more than helpful in our search for the right pup for us. We ended up choosing a pup called Maggie and as soon as our choice was made Ivy was more then happy to change her name to Ellie since that was the T.J. wanted to use. She was always willing to send photos and updates throughout the time of first contact and up to date of pick up. Ivy and her husband really care about every dog that comes and goes through her home. I will not hesitate on recommending them to anyone who is looking for a new member to their family.
