Sadie has been the best dog I've ever owned, I got her back in 2017 from William. She is gorgeous, has an excellent temperament and performs well. She has a natural point, is a star at agility, and the biggest snuggle bug you'll ever meet. I only get compliments on her. She has a classic gun dog look to her. After owning Sadie I can confidently say I will never not have a GSP. This breed has my heart. Kudos to William for breeding such an outstanding dog. I would not hesitate to buy a dog from him again in the future.

Bought an all black male from Will in March 2016. Gauge has been a great addition to our family, very smart, laid back in the truck and around the house but very enthusiastic in the field and at the duck pond. Gauge earned a prize one in the NAVHDA natural ability test at six and a half months and is showing great promise so far in his first quail season. Will is a great guy to deal with, very helpful and accommodating. Thanks for the new hunting buddy!

Picked up a black and white male from the March 2016 litter. This pup is amazing at 15 weeks he is pointing pigeon's and retrieving. He was an awesome addition to our family and is developing super quick.
Thanks Will. Awesome breeder

I bought a pup from Will in 2015. A liver and white male. This pup was house trained with in a couple days. At the beginning of quail season he was already listening to basic commands. Will is the best to work with in January I met up with him to take my pup to hunt with his father "Red". That dog is so passionate and well mannered in the field my pup seemed to follow his lead. Awesome dog. But yet an awesome person. Thank you getumshorthairs@yahoo.

I bought a solid brown pup for my husband in 2015. Buckwheat is without a doubt the smartest, sweetest dog we have ever owned. Not the usual hyper GSP. Thank you Will for keeping him an extra two weeks for me when I needed the help. BEST DOG EVER.

I hunted with getum shorthairs in the winter of 2013 in New Mexico. We hunted behind his Black and White female. She is a solid dog with a pretty point. She was well behaved and super smart.

i bought a dog from getum shorthairs in 2012. My female is out of wills male red and his female betty. I was unsure about a shorthair because the breed is so hyper active and hard headed. i contacted will and he explained his dogs to me and assured me thier puppies would fit my needs. My female is amazing she is every bit of what will explained she would be. i highly recommend this breeder.
