This litter whelped on October 28, 2012. These beautiful German Shorthaired Pointers will be ready mid-December (just in time for Christmas). I am a lifetime avid Pheasant and Quail hunter. All our German Shorthaired Pointers are trained specifically for field hunting. Our dogs are trained to hold their point as long as the bird is sitting, or until the hunter flushes the bird. Our dogs are then trained to follow bird to the ground. Training also consists of hand commands and whistle. Plain and simple; we bag our birds with these excellent hunting dogs.
