NOW TAKING DEPOSITS ON:

 

Night x Kali

Night is a neat little guy. He is about 40 lbs and roughly 21" at the shoulder. He has wonderful style on point, an excellent nose and a sweeter male you will not find (unless it is a close relative)! He plays with puppies, males and just about anyone who wants to play. He even sleeps on and under other males. He is a talker and a lover. So when you are not in the field, you can expect him hanging out near you or the family. If he feels he isn't getting enough attention, he will help you pet him by putting his nose under your arm and lifting it for you! He has a close wide looping pattern. This is a real partner oriented kind of dog and won't hunt for anybody but his partner. He is loyal!

Kali is sired by Slick and out of Dolly. Smaller version of her sister, she takes after her mother Dolly, in personality and intensity. A little powerhouse with a nice coat, sweet way of going and loving. She is our resident baby-sitter and a favorite of all of the puppies. Kali gets along with everybody, in fact, she thinks Everybody loves her! And we do. She is a very fun little girl who gets any job done and done well.

Repeat litter. First one was so good, I had to do it again.

Magnum x Gracie

Magnum is Night’s older brother and lot like his sister, Evie. He actually has a very strong resemblance to his 3x Great-Grandsire, Springset Touch Of Class (aka, Classy). He was an excellent hunting dog in Newfoundland/Canada and a loving and talkative (woo, woo, woo!) family dog. Sadly for his family, he was returned to us due to circumstances changing in the family and a move to a place that isn’t dog-friendly. It was our lucky day. He is a lovely dog who will tell you just how fun he is. If he sires anything like his siblings, his pups will be gold. If he sires anything like Classy, he will be platinum! He has all of the makings of a Hall of Fame dog. I can’t wait to see his pups!

Gracie is sired by Slick and out of Penny. She has a powerhouse body, smart way of going and loves attention. She is very dynamic on birds! A beautiful flat coat and I can’t wait to see her pups. This breeding has made a lot of people extremely happy and now, finally, me as well. Very loving and tries to please. Everything about this girl is a "wow" factor!

I'm keeping a female from this litter.

Hemi x Layla, due April 2022

Hemi is Rachel’s brother and could be a more solidly built Night clone. He is a talker (woo woo woo) and has tons of natural ability like his sister, Rachel. Very nice style and intensity, natural point and honor, and as sweet and loving as they come. In fact, he is actually sweeter than his sister. He is an absolute love bug and a real partner-oriented kind of guy.

Layla is sired by Slick and out of Dolly. She is her mother’s sweet daughter. A beautiful flat coat, excellent coloration and build. She will be very intense on point. She is a littermate sister to Cali, who is a smaller version of her mother in personality whereas Layla tends to favor her father and Tomi, her grandsire’s looks and personality. You can tell that she is from that Reno line of Springset dogs. A very sweet and loving girl, playful and everything her pedigree is.

This litter should be naturals in the field as well as be therapy dog prospects.

Zeus x Minnie

Zeus is a son of Tomi, making him a half-brother to our incredible Zack (the beautiful), Jamaican, Dolly and Penny, just to name a few. Tomi was a Reno son/grandson, mirroring his sire's great ability to be an early starter in the field, a loving, intelligent house dog and extremely non-aggressive (but not a sensitive dog, just had high standards and had better things to do than engage in arguments with other dogs). Zeus' dam was our lovely Princess, a Reno daughter out of Tula, a Libby daughter. Libby was one of Norm's personal hunting dogs and even made a television hunting show appearance. I am greatly looking forward to seeing his pups.

Minnie is Questor’s daughter out of Diva. She is Mick’s littermate sister. She looks just like him but in a smaller version. She is wonderfully sweet, like both parents, has very nice coloration. Loves birds, cookies, balls and attention. She also has a beautiful flat coat. She adores birds, cookies and loving and we aren’t sure which order she puts that in as she does everything with flair and verve.  Her pups are beautiful.

Females will most likely not be available from this litter, Check for availability. Magnum will be the backup sire.

Slick x Hannah

Slick is a Questor son out of Cassidy. He is on the smaller side, has lovely movement and when he is happy can bound like a deer! Normally he is quiet (unless you are working birds in front of him) and easy-peasy. I have only had to lightly reprimand him twice. He loves to please. He also loves birds, girls and attention (probably in that order since I know that when he has a girl and the birds are there he forgets about the girl)! His litters are a smashing success; his pups extremely loving and pointing/backing naturally at an early age. He is a phenomenal sire of daughters. Truly and exceptional sire, he has made a tremendous impact here at Springset and I have yet to hear anything but accolades about his get.

Hannah is Kai and Leah's littermate sister, full sister to Hemi and Rachel. She is very much like her great-aunt in many ways, right down to looks, attitude and ability. I am very much looking forward to seeing if she produces like Aggie as well. Hannah is an absolute natural in the field, sweet and calm in the home. She has a lovely flat coat and is incredibly loyal; a true credit to the breed.

I will keep a pup from this litter.

Night x Tempest, due April 2022

Night is a neat little guy. He is about 40 lbs and roughly 21" at the shoulder. He has wonderful style on point, an excellent nose and a sweeter male you will not find (unless it is a close relative)! He plays with puppies, males and just about anyone who wants to play. He even sleeps on and under other males. He is a talker and a lover. So when you are not in the field, you can expect him hanging out near you or the family. If he feels he isn't getting enough attention, he will help you pet him by putting his nose under your arm and lifting it for you! He has a close wide looping pattern. This is a real partner oriented kind of dog and won't hunt for anybody but his partner. He is loyal!

Tempest is sired by Slick and out of Jazz. She is very much like a darker Slick. She is also playful and tries to evade anything that isn’t fun or loving. She loves to be loved. A real sweetheart! Small and gorgeous, very birdy and good looking. Has wonderful intensity and gets along with everyone. She is a natural therapy dog, a natural hunting machine and a natural couch buddy!

I am keeping one of these pups.

Seanie x Chloe

Seanie is one of Zack's last sons. He is extremely stylish and moves very boldly and fluidly with a tall tail. He is dark, elegant and bold all over...until he wants his paw held and to be cuddled. He is a lover, very birdy and loves to retrieve and play. I'm looking forward to his contribution to Springset.

Chloe is sired by our incredible Zack and from Jazz’s last litter. She is everything sweet and loving with incredible intensity and eye-catching style. She is very calm and easy going when not in the field, great with everyone (especially young babies of any kind). A strong Reno influence here. She has wonderful style and is a lovely producer of very sweet pups, capable at an early age. Chloe has a wonderful cross of our beautiful Zack to our bold and fun Hilts. Not sure it gets better than this.

A double Zack grandkid, this litter should be nothing short of incredible.

Mick x Raisey

Mick is our Questor son out of Diva, Zack's sister. He is very handsome like his sire, extremely sweet like both parents. He is a big boy, 50+ lbs, solidly built with taller style. He was born pointing and backing naturally. He loves to cuddle, even lightly mouth/suck on fingers, and play. A true sweetheart with wonderful bird ability. His first pups have been incredibly beautiful.  He is amazing with very young children. A real true Gordon sweetheart. What the true Gordon temperament/disposition should be is all in this dog. He is the sire of Ranger, Hemi, Kai, Rachel, Hannah and Leah. He is a proven sire of incredibly sweet, loving, chill Gordons who are complete naturals in the home and field.

Raisey is Chloe’s sister. She is a bit smaller and strongly favors Zack and his mother Serenade in intensity. She is a natural water dog. In fact, if she isn’t on some bird’s path somewhere, she can be found in the water. LOVES to point and is very intense about it. She has a very strong bird and pointing desire. She is sweet and tries to please. She is smaller and racey, smart and loving. An ultimate package for someone looking to improve their stock’s bird ability.

The Mick x Zack daughter cross has been very, very good (Hemi, Rachel, Hannah, Kai, Leah); add Jazz and Ember (Gracie's grandmother) to the mix and it should be beyond great.

Jamaican x Sammy

Jamaican is sired by Tomi (Zack’s sire) and out of our Questor daughter, Brenna. Brenna represents the Scottie and Angel (Raven, Sarah’s sister) lines. Brenna is very intense on birds and very loving and wonderful in the house. She is a girl who knows what side her bread is buttered on! Jamaican has all of that Tomi/Questor cross beauty and ability as an all-around fantastic Gordon. Jai lives with his family and their four young children and makes them all quite happy indeed. He is a lovely boy and I am looking forward to seeing his pups too.

Sammie is Hunter’s daughter out of a mostly Springset bitch. She is a big girl who is very birdy (usually the last one to come in from the field as she just knows that there are more out there to find. She is very sweet, easy going and playful too. A very lovely girl all around. She has strong ties to our Cause and Serenade (Zack’s dam). This makes her a very thoughtful girl too. No flies on this one when it comes to how to get things done. She can really move out in the field, showing strong ties to her many time great grandsire, Shadow (a Reno son and Cause's sire). Do not underestimate this sweet girl's ability because of her size. Her first litter turned on to birds early and yet were beautiful enough to go into the show ring. True dual dog ability here.

This is a repeat breeding. The pups were dual in looks, incredibly sweet and very beautiful. Perfect for foot hunters, possible show interests and incredible hunting pets.

I'm keeping one of these pups.

Zeus x Bliss

Zeus is a son of Tomi, making him a half-brother to our incredible Zack (the beautiful), Jamaican, Dolly and Penny, just to name a few. Tomi was a Reno son/grandson, mirroring his sire's great ability to be an early starter in the field, a loving, intelligent house dog and extremely non-aggressive (but not a sensitive dog, just had high standards and had better things to do than engage in arguments with other dogs). Zeus' dam was our lovely Princess, a Reno daughter out of Tula, a Libby daughter. Libby was one of Norm's personal hunting dogs and even made a television hunting show appearance. I am greatly looking forward to seeing his pups.

Bliss is a sweet little outcross girl. Her dam is a daughter of Zack and Maggie. Her sire is from the Whitelail line. She is very sweet and very birdie. She has a lovely flat coat and loves attention. She has better style when not being photographed! Obviously, NOT a natural professional model! She has better things to do, thank you! Bliss doesn't always think things through in advance, she'd rather just go for the whole enchilada.

This is a repeat breeding. Very impressive first litter, most pups favoring Zeus. Early starting, very smart and sweet, cuddly personalities that like to have conversations with you. A winning combo.

Zeus x Beauty

Zeus is a son of Tomi, making him a half-brother to our incredible Zack (the beautiful), Jamaican, Dolly and Penny, just to name a few. Tomi was a Reno son/grandson, mirroring his sire's great ability to be an early starter in the field, a loving, intelligent house dog and extremely non-aggressive (but not a sensitive dog, just had high standards and had better things to do than engage in arguments with other dogs). Zeus' dam was our lovely Princess, a Reno daughter out of Tula, a Libby daughter. Libby was one of Norm's personal hunting dogs and even made a television hunting show appearance. I am greatly looking forward to seeing his pups.

Beauty is Bliss' littermate sister, so also out of a daughter of Zack and Maggie and sired by a Whitelail line. Beauty also has a very lovely flat coat, is more sensible around photographers. She is very loving, loves children, birds and other dogs, but not necessarily in that order. She is a bird fiend! More sensible than her sister, Beauty tends to think about ways to get things done.

Flash or Mick will be the back up sire for this litter.

Stormy x Rachel, due April 2022

Stormy is Zack's last son and out of Winnie, our Whitelail x older Springset lines. Stormy showed great promise as a puppy and has gone through a rough puberty, not sure what way to grow first. Took some time getting himself together but is now back to showing that tremendous potential. He is smooth bodied, tall, like Zack, and also very birdy, showing great intensity. This boy loves to point, just like his daddy! He is extremely loving and sweet. His pics on the website really don't do him justice as he was going through his puppy uglies (puberty growth stage) and he was disconcerted by a camera clicking noisily around him. It does show a bit of his sweet, goofy side though. This dog is a lover and I must say, I think Zack has done it again.

Rachel is our strong pointing, natural backing, little girls who is a water nut. She plays in the trough and in the sprinklers, in short, a water freak. She loves birds, bubbles, laser lights and loving. Probably in that order. Her brother Hemi has shown his incredible ability to sire very beautiful, birdy pups that are as chill as they come. In short, a perfect family bird dog. I am thinking that Rachel is going to give us more of the same but perhaps a bit more playful.

Zeus x Ebony

Zeus is a son of Tomi, making him a half-brother to our incredible Zack (the beautiful), Jamaican, Dolly and Penny, just to name a few. Tomi was a Reno son/grandson, mirroring his sire's great ability to be an early starter in the field, a loving, intelligent house dog and extremely non-aggressive (but not a sensitive dog, just had high standards and had better things to do than engage in arguments with other dogs). Zeus' dam was our lovely Princess, a Reno daughter out of Tula, a Libby daughter. Libby was one of Norm's personal hunting dogs and even made a television hunting show appearance. I am greatly looking forward to seeing his pups.

Ebony is Seanie's sister. She most resembles Zack than any other from this mating. She is extremely sweet, loving and cuddly, yet is a bird dynamo. She is constantly taking my breath away with her pointing style and ability. She is very elegant and is maturing fabulously. I cannot wait for her pups. She is everything I had hoped for and then some.

Zeus x Dreamy, due April 2022

Zeus is a son of Tomi, making him a half-brother to our incredible Zack (the beautiful), Jamaican, Dolly and Penny, just to name a few. Tomi was a Reno son/grandson, mirroring his sire's great ability to be an early starter in the field, a loving, intelligent house dog and extremely non-aggressive (but not a sensitive dog, just had high standards and had better things to do than engage in arguments with other dogs). Zeus' dam was our lovely Princess, a Reno daughter out of Tula, a Libby daughter. Libby was one of Norm's personal hunting dogs and even made a television hunting show appearance. I am greatly looking forward to seeing his pups.

Dreamy is Stormy's sister, Zack's last daughter. Again, Zack proved to be amazing. This girl is very sweet but knows where she is going. She knows birds are her destiny! She has lovely tall style on point and just gets better and better. When Dreamy and her half-sister Ebony point and back each other, it is a sight to behold. Dreamy's dam is our Winnie. Winnie's mother's mother is by our Jet and out of Cassidy, a proven success as a cross across the USA and her mother's sire is by Skye (Questor's sire) and out of old Springset lines to Wish, Libby's dam, another personal favorite of Norm's. I am eager to see what gifts she will bring us.

I'm keeping one of these pups.

Flash x Winnie

Flash is sired by Jamaican out of Lupe, Sammy's dam. Jamaican is sired by Tomi, making him Zack's half-brother and out of Brenna, a granddaughter of Raven (sister of Dad's famous Sarah, his seminar dog). Lupe is from our dual line, mostly coming from our Cause and Serenade lines (through Serenade's sister, Lola). Lupe is a sister of a show champion and is a very birdy, smooth moving girl. She is as sweet as they come and willing to do just about anything for you. I am very pleased to be able to own two of her lovely daughters, Sammy and Stella, as well as this very striking and sweet son, Flash. Flash is a big boy of solid body, extremely sweet disposition and birdy too. He is showing me some very nice traits from Tomi (an extraordinary sire) as well. I'm really looking forward to his pups. Flash is excellent for foot hunting and has that teddy bear sweetness in the home.

Winnie is a half-Springset girl of excellent size and birdiness. She tries very hard to please and loves attention and treats (I'm not sure which is more desired by her, she gets excited about both). Her sire is Whitelail’s Big Sy and her dam is from our Questor/Reno lines. She is on the smaller size like her dam and has a smile that brings a smile to your own face. She is a lovely girl with a flat coat and I can’t wait to see her pups.
