About Northern Star Brittanys

Northern Star Brittanys is located in central North Dakota, an area that boasts some of the finest pheasant hunting in the country. Our breeding program is built around the bloodlines that have produced some of the best Brittany hunting and trial dogs in the breed including 32X NSTRA CH/HOF Nolan's Last Bullet, NAFC/DC/AFC/HOF Renegade's Kansas Kid, and NFC/FC/AFC/HOF Shambo's Last Shadow.

Our foundation female, Bullet's Northern Star, is a direct daughter of Nolan's Last Bullet, out of an own daughter of Renegade's Kansas Kid. Star is a finished gun dog and has competed in a handful of NSTRA events when maternal duties allowed; she is an intense competitor and is our personal hunting dog and can be counted on to find the birds. Star produced outstanding pups including a dog named Powder River's In the Line of Fire, JH (sired by 6X NSTRA CH Montana's Rusty Little Pants) who earned the title 2012 UFTA Reserve Champion Amatuer Pointing dog from a field of 180 dogs. Her 2012 and 2013 litters were sired by GCH/DC Masked Jack of Diamonds who won the 2011 Magnum's Masked Man award and was the #1 AKC Gun Dog All Pointing Breeds in 2011 and 2012. Pups from this cross show great potential for the field and have tremendous personalitites and an abundance of Brittany type and style. Star is now retired from breeding and enjoys her days being my best friend and our hunting dog.

The new addition to the breeding program is a lovely female named Suggs Royal Princess MH; Princess came to live with us late in 2012. She is a direct daughter of NFC/AFC/FC Shambo's Dark Shadow, who was inducted into the American Brittany Hall of Fame in 2012 and the Brittany Field Trial Hall of Fame in 2013. Princess is out of a Rick Smith bred female named Smoked and Peppered Kate and her pedigree is filled with both dual and field champions. She is a finished gun dog who had several nice placements in the field including Runner-Up at the 2011 Prairie States Open Derby Championship. Princess completed her Master Hunter title with 6 out of 6 passes and earned a perfect score on her final two tests in 2012. Princess ran her first NSTRA trial in July 2013, exactly 9 weeks post-whelp and took a 1st placement! She is the sweetest, most biddable girl you could ask for and is a tremendous wild bird/companion hunting dog as well. She produced a beautiful litter of pups in Spring 2013 sired by 6X NSTRA CH Footluce Louie Little Pants and proved to be an excellent mother and producing female to top off her list of accomplishments!

One of the youngsters in the kennel is Bullet's Sweet Jessie Gunn; Jessie is sired by 2X NGDC/NAGDC AFC Peter Gunn and out of a linebred Nolan's Last Bullet/Renegade's Kansas Kid female. Jessie spent time with Kevin Stonehouse of Kountry Boy Kennels in 2012 and 2013; she has several puppy and derby placements and shows great potential to be a competitive Gun Dog or NSTRA dog. She

The youngster of the group is "Lacey" aka Northern Star's Diamonds & Lace. Lacey is sired by GCH DC Masked Jack of Diamonds and out of my female, Star. Lacey was whelped 6-8-13 and is a tall, pretty female who inherited the best of both parents. We look forward to watching how she develops and will send her to Kevin Stonehouse early in 2014 for some foundation work.

** 12-11-13 NEWS FLASH** Princess was bred the end of November to US & Canadian DC Kinwashkly Dirty Ned Pepper!! Ned is the only Brittany to achieve a dual championship in both the US and Canada and was bred by Leslie Andreas of Kinwashkly Kennels. Ned's most recent placement came at the 2013 ABC All-Age Nationals where he was 3rd in a field of 69 dogs! This was Ned's 3rd National placement in 3 years!! This should be an outstanding dual quality litter of pups due the first week of February 2014! This litter will reserve quickly so contact me if interested - preference given to competition homes but good hunting homes will be considered as well! My females are either OFA or PennHip certified and only bred to dogs who have been as well. Pups come with health/hip guarantees and references are available upon request. *LITTER IS FULLY RESERVED*

I found Lisa a pleasure to work with. She is very very knowledgable of the Brittany and I am glad to have her as a new friend and resource. Her Brittanys are World Class with none bred better. Her kennel is definately worth strong consideration for anyone looking to improve their kennel.
Lisa, thanks for everything.

"Duck" a three year old out of "Star" just won UFTA RU National Amateur Ch. in Feb.(180 dogs), he is also an UFTA Amateur ch. and UFTA Open Ch. His future is all ahead of him one of the top Brittanys in the country. Looking forward to another pup out of "Star", she is a great producer.

I own a male out of last years breeding whose call name is "Duck". He placed 4th three times last year in UFTA trials and didn't retrieve. Since then he has been force broke to retrieve and we are excited about this coming fall. He breezed through his Jr. Hunt Test with 6 fines in less than 10 minutes. Ran out of blanks and the judge asked me to pick him up.
