The German Shorthaired Pointer was developed in Germany during the 1800s to be an "all-purpose" dog. They are very versatile dogs that can not only hunt, point, retrieve and track, but are great family dogs, too! Their scenting ability to locate and point game as well as their willingness to retrieve fur or feather, on land or in water, is a natural skill that has been bred into them for many generations! Physically, their short hair and tail are less maintenance daily for both the homeowner and the hunter after a day in field. They have webbed feet and therefore are naturally good swimmers, as well.
IMPORTANT: As of January 2018, we are NO LONGER BREEDING GSPs. We enjoyed breeding German Shorthaired Pointers for 15 years. Unfortunately, due to PARENT CARE-TAKING ROLES for the upcoming years, we have decided that it was best to RETIRE as BREEDERS in January 2018. Although the following information no longer applies, I will leave it on this page to allow others to see how we did things for 15 years. It may be helpful for comparison's sake when shopping for your next new GSP puppy.
OLD INFO - NO LONGER BREEDING: We breed for great temperament, beautiful dogs and fantastic hunting abilities. We are very thankful that we are able to enjoy our German Shorthaired Pointers on our family-owned 100 acres in Chelsea, Michigan. We also offer "Colonial Farms Gamebird Preserve" as a place to train and hunt your dogs since our grand opening in 2005. We offer YEAR-ROUND field training lessons for your hunting dogs. We have various gamebirds that are available for all of your dog training needs, too.
Our dogs make wonderful pets ... they want to be with YOU! All of our dogs are "FANTASTIC" Upland Bird Hunters and their bloodlines contain many Field Champions, Show Champions, Dual Champions and National Champions. Many of our dog's lineage traces back to the original famous German and Danish Imports.
Our puppies are born in the house and socialized within the family. We know them "each" individually and can help you find that PERFECT puppy that fits YOUR needs, whether it is for hunting, your jogging partner, your pet's companion, or that GREAT family pet!
All of our puppies have AKC purebred registrations, current vaccinations, worming, tails docked, dewclaws removed and are sent home with a written contact signed by both parties, Puppy Care Sheet and Welcome Kit loaded with helpful information. If you do NOT plan to breed, we strongly recommend spaying and neutering, BUT NOT UNTIL THEY ARE FULLY DEVELOPED! WARNING: There are now many complications being linked to EARLY SPAY / NEUTER in dogs under 1 year of age. Please read the LINK AT TOP OF PAGE.
All of our dogs have OFA Certification and the puppies will come with a Written Health Warranty. This is something that is very important and you need to compare when you are in the market for a new puppy. What guarantees does the breeder offer? We are also available for LIFETIME SUPPORT with any training or other problems that develop over the lifetime of your precious new family member.
