JD Griffons was formed out of the love for Wirehaired Pointing Griffons.
We are expecting two litters early Spring 2018 with our Dam's Kali and Raynee with our Sire Ridge. Please email your inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
Pointing at 6 weeks Raynee has natural hunting ability which is consistent with the griffon breed. She is loving, loves the water, cooperative, docile in the home and excellent with young children. Raynee possesses a medium dense coat and has the look of a traditional Griff.
Ridge is extremely athletic and versatile. Has an affectionate personality, a very handsome face and is eager to please. He possesses a traditional Griffon coat,that is easy to care for in and out of the field. I have hunted over 7 different breeds of dogs since my young teen-age years and have never in my life encountered a hunting dog with the superior hunting abilities with no formal training like our Griffs. He is outstanding in the field and with his fun loving personality he makes a great match with kid's and adults alike.
Whether your desire is a new family and/or hunting companion these pups will be exceptional at both! Pups will be AKC registered. Tails medium docked, dew claws removed, current on vaccinations, wormed,certified vet health check and two year health guarantee. Our puppies are always very well socialized by adults, our children and grandchildren.
We are currently offering reservations for our upcoming pups. For additional information please email me at email@example.com

Darcy could not have been more amazing to work with. If I could have 10 dogs... I'd get them all from Darcy! My griff, Josi, is extremely birdie yet very mellow and cuddly at home. She has a gorgeous, easy coat and is petite at 50 pounds. She is great to take anywhere as well. She is exceptionally friendly... loving everyone and every dog she meets. I have 6 young nieces and nephews and she adores them and is SO good with them! Josi is an outstanding girl. I couldn't be more in love with my pup nor say enough good things about Darcy. I would highly recommend Darcy if you are considering a WPG!

I have nothing but good things to say about Darcy.
We were kept informed constantly throughout the process; from breeding, birth, to our final pickup. We received multiple sets of photos and Darcy was available to answer questions whenever we had them. The picking out/picking up process was seamless and pleasant. We had ample time with the pups to decide on our new best friend. We are not hunters, but we are definitely dog enthusiasts, and are extremely impressed with the breed. Going on 4 1/2 months old, and our Charlie is keen as mustard. High energy, eager to please, affectionate, and attentive during training. We're excited to see how she handles hiking and swimming as it starts to warm up. Her health has been excellent as well. She doesn't mind the cold or wet, either. Excellent with strangers. Not a guard dog, but also not a dog you have to worry about biting someone's kid. Think Golden Retriever mixed with Labrador Retriever and German Wirehaired Pointer.
On a side note for the breeder, we had forgotten her vaccination records at home when we took her to her 8 week vet appt. We were able to quickly get in touch with Darcy, who emailed us photos of the other pup's vaccination records. Saved us a drive home and back.
Friends and family are extremely interested in what is a pretty rare breed, and we'll be sending them to J & D Griffons if they want to get one themselves.

Picked up my best friend Oscar on April fools day in 2015. Since then we've joined NAVHDA and have went through the NA test @ 7months old, Oscar got a prize III, with an excellent on tracking and pointing. Oscar is a supper friendly and has not found anyone that he doesn't like. He does great in our house and turns it on when out hunting. You couldn't ask for a better companion. Darcy was great to work with and was patient with us.

We contacted Darcy about a month before moving from Hawaii back to Washington. She was very willing to work with us to assure we would have a puppy waiting for us upon our return.
Since then Roger (a very fitting name) has become a great addition to the family. His Character is unique and he has a very loving and gentle temperament. Roger is a great companion and wonderful with children. He has not had any health issues and am looking forward to his first pheasant season starting next weekend. I did take him to an upland bird ranch for training and he showed tremendous natural instinct.
I would highly recommend JD Griffons to anyone looking for an ugly dog. They make great family pets and from what I can tell so far, great partners in the field.

When we began our search for a new WPG puppy, we could not find any located in our home state of North Dakota. We had owned a WPG previously, and knew that was the breed we wanted to own again. Once you own a WPG, you will never want to own another breed again. They are affectionate, fun, and an excellent hunting dog. Through our searching, we located JD Griffons. I was apprehensive about working with a breeder three states away, but Darcy made it the best experience. I was so nervous about selecting a puppy I had not met in person. Darcy was so patient and took the time to answer my numerous questions. My husband was looking for a hunting dog, and I was looking for a pet companion with great personality. She took numerous pictures of the puppies that she thought would meet our criteria. In addition she sent videos of the pups working with a pheasant wing, playing, and interacting with people. Through her expertise and taking the time to get to know us and our desires in a pup, we were matched with the best puppy. We named her Ivy and she is a year and half old now. Everyone who meets Ivy loves her demeanor and is impressed with her skills. She is so gentle, well behaved, and cute! Ivy loves going to the lake, going on long runs/walks, playing with our kids and other dogs, and hunting. My husband has taken her hunting last fall and this fall, and she is doing very well. We are very pleased with our experience with JD Griffons and would use them again.

We are very happy with the professional and caring we found at J&D. We got a female Griff from J&D this spring. She's a wonderful dog. J&D is a quality breeder and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a Griff.

Working with Darcy Markee of J&D Griffons was an exceptional experience. I fully admit was I was not an easy client. This was the first time ever, after a lifetime of family dogs (every breed from Heinze 57 to a gorgeous pedigreed yellow lab) that we brought a dog into our family without having met him/her in person. We had our hearts set on a Griffon and found our way to Darcy. She talked to me at length about the breed and about her dogs. Darcy asked me what my expectations were (loyal, loving, family dog that can hunt vs a hunting dog that would tolerate family). Oddly enough when we started talking I thought I wanted the smallest female in the litter. We ended up with the largest male (J&D Griffons called him Tank) and we couldn't be happier!!
Darcy helped me negotiate flying Magnum P.G. (that is what we named him) from Washington State to Georgia and he is the Christmas gift that we are grateful for every single day.
We have never had a smarter, more loving more versatile dog. Magnum will run all day on the beach or trails or he will snuggle on the sofa. He is almost 3 years old and we look forward to a life time together. As an aside, he is the most handsome dog you have ever seen!

We have had several Griffons in past years. All were rescued dogs and therefore adults when they came to us. We loved each one of them even though they were all a little different from each other.
It had been a lot of years since we had a puppy.
Babe has been a challenge for us as we are not as young as we once was. She is in my opinion the most intelligent dog that we have ever had and therefore a challenge to teach. Having said that she has become a very loving and dependable companion. She also is very "birdie " and love the daily work outs that she gets on our property finding Quail.
She is now 17 months old and learns new tasks very quickly. She is our constant companion no matter what we are doing.
We highly recommend Darcy's line of dogs for anyone who wants a exceptional hunting dog or companion/ family dog.

Great people to deal with and a great facility they keep for their dogs, very good at communicating with the buyer on what you are looking for in a Griff. In my case my wife and I drove 8 hours to pick up our pup, only because of the honest communication and constant replies from Darcy. She wanted to know about us and what the dog was going to be used for. I explained he will be a pet first and a hunting dog second and after several emails and phone conversations she knew this dog was going to a great home where he will be spoiled rotten and that set Darcy ease with knowing she didn't have to worry.
Folks Darcy does not run a puppy mill.
