I have a rare form of epilepsy called refractable epilepsy where I'll have seizures for life. My neurologist recommended getting a dog sooner than later as I live alone. I reached out to Mr. Larry, explained my situation, and asked if he had a puppy available. He knew the right puppy for me with the perfect disposition for my epilepsy. I picked the puppy up today, and the puppy has already improved my quality of life. I highly recommended Mr. Larry for any dog needs. Mr. Larry breeds with quality in mind and respects the dogs. He is one of the kindest, caring, and most giving person you'll ever meet. I'm unable to Thank him enough!

Our female Boykin Spaniel is now 6 months old. She is healthy, smart, beautiful, and energetic. She has adapted well to our family and plays with other dogs and children. Larry was easy to work with and his kennels and dogs clean and well maintained. We look forward to many years of enjoyment with our Boykin.

On Nov 27 I got one of Larrys Elhew Pointer pups
He is a lemon and white male will be 3 mos 12-8.
He is very healthy.full of energy and smart. I am very happy with him and looking forward to having a good hunting buddy in the future. I believe Larry has 2 more of these special pups left. I highly recommend if you want one call Larry soon.
I rate Larry as a breeder #5 because he has a nice kennel full of beautiful dogs. Thanks Larry

My husband went on a quail hunt with Larry and was quickly impressed with the quality of his GSPs and Brittanys brought to work the birds - so much so that we purchased a female GSP from Larry 6 months later. This pup is smart, smart, smart and bold as well. We got her at 6-7 weeks and by week 8 she already had basic commands like "sit" and "come" down pat. Potty training was a very easy concept for her as well. She could also "kennel", "shake", "speak" and lay "down" by week 10. My vet couldn't believe it. To top it off, my husband was shooting a 20 gauge with her at his feet without any sort of flinch or reaction - also at week 10 - and she was pointing meadowlarks and our free range chickens like she belonged on the cover of Garden and Gun. We will be starting her "real" bird dog training with quail over the next few months and are looking forward to watching her development. She is also a wonderful family companion and does well with our children, other dogs, horses, etc. She's 5 months now and gets better every day. We couldn't be happier.

We looked for about 2 years for a German Shorthaired Pointer and we found Larry and his dogs. We bought a pup off of Larry about 3 months ago and he is super smart, perfect built, and beautiful! Arguably the best dog I ever owned. I highly recommend Old Hickory and Larry has top quality dogs. Thanks again Larry, we love our German Shorthaired (Remington).

My family and I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for our puppy. Dixie has been an absolutely fabulous addition to our family. She is wonderful, smart, and great with the kids.

Larry Mize has some beautiful dogs. I purchased a German Short haired Pointer pup from him in late May. I have been extremely happy with the pup and he is very easy to train. He has tons of energy which I love. Larry always responds to emails and will be happy to talk on the phone. You will not be disappointed with any of Larry's pups

Mr. Mize was a wonderful breeder to work with! He was always extremely prompt in returning my emails and was great about answering any questions I had. He let me meet my puppy Finn's parents, and although I have only had him 3 days, I can already tell He is a very smart dog! He is already beginning to pick up our housebreaking routine, and is adapting well to his crate training. His coloring and markings are absolutly beautful as well! Thank you, Larry for such a great experience!
