Our female, Eagle, had her puppies on March 8, 2013. She delivered two girls and four boys. Their pedigree is from Champion bloodlines including 32x NSTRA champion Nolan's Last Bullet and Renegade Kansas Kid. Both parents are excellent hunting, trial and most importantly, family pets. They are both well socialized and get along with other dogs and cats. The Sire (Ginger's Ty Can Fly) is the son of Nolan' Last Bullet and the Grandson of Renegade Kansas Kid. His pedigree is available upon request. The dam's pedigree is very impressive (her name is Eagle) and can be seen on our website.
Update on the litter. All of the puppies have been sold.
We will be breeding one of our other females, Phoenix, when she starts her heat. She is Eagle's sister. Phoenix will be bred to a Dual Champion. This litter will be $700 with a refundable deposit of $100 to hold your puppy. If you are interested in this breeding and would like to reserve your puppy, contact us.

About a year ago to the day I was looking for a Brittany. I looked everywhere for my companion and finally I found Jim and Paulette Doperalski. I emailed them and within the next day they responded and had me come up to visit the newly born puppies. Enthusiastic about finding a breeder I made my way up to the Green Bay area to visit what could be my new puppy. I instantly fell in love with the puppies and couldn't leave until I claimed one. Many know that the breed is known for being great hunting dogs as well as being very energetic. Jim and Paulette's dogs are not only that, they are the sweetest most reliable animals you will ever find. Their new born dogs are treated with the most respect. Jim and Paulette don't breed the dogs to make money. They breed them to bring joy to the owners. Each Brittany comes from a championship bloodline. My Brittany is approaching 1 year old and he is the best companion I could ever ask for. If you are looking for a dependable best friend then JD's Hawks Brittanies is the way to go. Jordan Borst

Three years ago, we were on the search for a family dog who was "a bit bigger and more active" than the traditional "designer house dogs" and we came upon Jim and Paulette Doperaksi's Brittanies, which we found from an internet search. Hawkens had just given birth to litter of puppies so I schedule a visit while in the Green Bay area to visit Hawkens, Falcon and the puppies. I immediately feel in love and when I bent down to look at the litter, Addison picked me out. A few weeks later, we brought Addison home and it has been a real love affair between Addison and our family of 3 kids and another dog.
When I went to visit Jim and Paulette, you can tell they have a real love for the dogs and that they are truly a part of their family. The dogs are not breed for money, but they're breed to be good hunters and great pets. Paulette uses her nursing skills to take care of her puppies and I'm sure she can share a few stories with how she used those skills during deliveries!
Addison lives in Chicagoland, which means we had to consider how we're going to manage a dog that needs to run, while living in a suburban community with neighbors. Brittany's are very smart so training was extremely easy. We didn't want to spend the extra money on an electric fence, so we invested in a electric collar and within 1 day, Addison clearly understood her boundries and we've had no difficulties with her trying to run the neighborhood. The collar quickly became our "security blanket" but was not needed to ensure Addison stayed in her boundries. (if you use this collar, make sure to read the user guidelines because to appropriately train, the dog needs to know commands like come) Brittany need to be off lease as they love to run so any owner should have a way to ensure that the dog gets the ability to run freely.
We had no discipline issues with Addison. She can read each family member's personality and she's quickly figure who does what for her. If she wants hugs and love, she comes to the mom of the house, if she wants to play she goes to the kids and if she wants to go outside, dad to the rescue. She will hunt out the right person to meet her needs.
I've lived my entire life with a dog or dogs and Addison is by far the most enjoyable pet. She is truly loved and if you're crazy about dogs with a personality, I recommend a dog from Jim and Paulette.
And be prepared, Brittanies are bird dogs and even in suburbs, a Brittany figure out how to catch a bird. Addison is so proud of herself when she gets a bird from her yard!
