WildRose German Shorthaired Pointer
Over the last 45 years my family has developed what has become one of the most popular lines of German Shorthairs in the country today. Our first German Shorthair, Duke, came to be a part of the family in 1969. Duke was a wonderful German bred hunter, but we found him lacking in manners and social skills as is common with the old lines.
My father bred a few litters out of “old Duke” to provide dogs for his friends, but WildRose German Shorthair began in earnest, in the late eighties and early nineties when I began my Outfitting business and needed the finest and most versatile GSP’s I could find to make that business work. I found the shortest path to that end, working with a very limited budget to begin breeding the best we had to the best I could find.
In the nineteen eighties we first encountered the Dixieland’s Rusty line, and found the beginnings of the perfect Versatile, Family Hunting Companion. Since then through careful line breeding, painstaking selection amongst my own breedings, and carefully adding dogs from other lines developed what has become known as the WildRose German Shorthair.
Upcoming Litters for Winter
We generally plan litters for every spring and fall. We also try and have one litter or more available in late summer or early fall. Dogs at various levels of training, even house broken, are available from time to time. To see our German Shorthair puppies that are available, check out our Upcoming Litters for the Winter! Give us a call at 940-889-4646.
German Shorthair puppy prices start at $750.00 -$800.00 depending on the breeding, the only exception to this pricing policy is when we breed to an outside sire, A-I mating, or some other exceptional circumstance.
I believe the key to getting the most from a bird dog is exposure to wild birds and lots of it. Training is conducted here on our land, and in the wilds of Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma where we hunt.
Our fall training/hunting trip to the prairies of Montana, Kansas, and the Dakotas extends our hunting season by three full months and provides an opportunity for young dogs to see more wild birds in one season with me, than they are likely to in several years with their owners. I will generally take up to 20 client dogs on this trip and I begin taking reservations for it in June.
