For more than 32 years I have been involved in this particular breed. I have intentionally kept the foot hunting family in mind and breed specifically for: Temperment, Cooperation, Coat, Biddability, Natural Ability. I am a hunter and seek to produce pups/dogs that are excellent in the field and home and offer all that I sell a 2 yr. health guarantee as well as registration papers. My lines feature some of the greatest foundation dogs within the breed including but not limited to the following: NAFC DC AFC Jay-Mar's Cina's Runaway Train, CH RLB's Maddie Mae, NFC DC Sure Shot's Hot Rocks, CH Backwoods Mo Kick, NFC NAFC DC AFC Cascade Ike, and many more. I produce no more than 1-2 litters/year and I am able to provide many references to those that want them. I pride myself on my facilities - safe, clean and abundant space for all the pups/dogs. All inquiries are welcomed and calls returned. Shipping available at new owner's expense and subject to restrictions as imposed by selected carrier.
All the Best,

First of all...John is top notch! We contacted him when we heard he had a litter on the ground and told him what we were looking for in a breeder dog. We wanted a long haired puppy with a gray beard and that is what we got! The fact that they also came from a good hunting stock was very important too. From the time we sent the deposit until the time we received our puppy. John would send us videos of the puppies so we could see them weekly as they grew. We couldn't have ask for a better puppy! Thanks John for everything!

We bought Lexi in January. This is our 2nd dog from John. We are very happy so far. She is great with our young kids and is very intelligent. We are excited to get her out hunting this Fall. Our last one had a great nose on her.
We would highly recommend John’s dogs and plan to get our next one from him in years to come.

We have two of his dogs. The first is four years old and the second is 10 months old. Both are excellent hunters that just keep going. They are really good with the kids and family. When with family they are very loving and calm. We would recommend them to anyone as first class hunting Dogs and family pets.

I am an avid bird hunter. I purchased my first German Wired Hair from John Scheer. I just recently bought my third wired hair from him. I have been very happy with the quality of these pointers. They are great hunters, quick learners, and great noses. It was fun receiving the weekly video's from John, watching their progress from just being born to feisty little pups. Am looking forward to working with our third pup.

We purchased our first Wirehair from John over 11 years ago. Jaeger has been the best hunting partner my husband has ever had! His temperament is top notch, eager to please, hard working and all around great family member. We've never had health issues and at 11 he's still an amazing hunter. For this reason we just bought another from John in January, Magnus has been a fast learner.... With Jaeger's help, we are excited to see him grow into an equally great hunter. John is the BEST!!!! My favorite part of the whole process was the weekly videos of the puppies! We couldn't be more pleased!

Ike is only nine weeks old, but I'm impressed with his agility and responsiveness already, during daily walks in the woods. We flushed a Partridge one day and his nose immediately went to work. (Ike is my second GWP...just lost Otter at 16!)
John Scheer and his family run a top-notch kennel. I've visited several kennels, and his is the best, by far!!

I purchased a male dog Feb 2014. My family has had GWPs since 1970. I couldn't be happier with my selection of High Island dog. Good coat, nice movement in the field. Good prey drive. Retrieves. Biddable. Just a fun dog to be around.
Scored 110/112 in NAVHDA Natural ability test.
Great dog Great kennel.

Just an update from my original post about Gus, he is now 15 months old and we ran him in the NAVHDA natural ability test in Milaca,MN...he scored a prize 1 with 112/112 points perfect score. The judges absolutely loved him and could not say enough about his coat and how great of a looking dog he is. He found and retrieved more birds than any dog in the field! I could not be more happy with this breed and this bloodline.
