Our gorgeous German Shorthair Pointer, Makai, has given birth to a litter of nine with four girls and five boys. They are currently 6 weeks old, had their first shots and will be ready to go about the first of October. There are now only 1 boy and 1 girl left with another interested buyer visiting Saturday!
Both Makai's sire and dam came from Upland Hills Kennels in Port Angeles, Washington and have been well lauded and recognized for their hunting and field trial skills, carrying multiple champion and dual champion awards. The sire of the puppies (Makai was flown to Las Vegas for the breeding) has a line heralding a notable pedigree with many champion dogs as well. More than for hunting, however, these hunter/companion dogs make good family companions! Both lines are noted for their great temperaments, a strong desire to serve and please, and remarkable ease of training. Even Makai's direct sister at three-years-old is a full-time service dog! Makai and the sire are both perfectly adept at family life and the expectation is that the pups will be as well.
In regard to soundness and health, and according to a local vet who oversees multiple GSP kennels in our area, Makai has been described as exceptionally beautiful and perfectly proportioned. She weighs in right at 50 lbs and stands 23 inches at the withers. Her AKC hip x-rays came back as good and both her line and the sire's have no notable history of genetic abnormalities, nor is there any record of cancer in the line.The sire stands at 22 inches and weighs in at around 45 lbs so the puppies should come out to a breed-standard, ideal size.
No matter where you live (within the US), if you are interested in a puppy, give me a call to talk about it. They are not for everyone, of course, and we really care about the kind of home the puppies go to. But it is always fun to brag and I could probably help you figure out if one of our GSPs are a good fit for you. Hurry, though, because this great cross is almost sold out!
