February 13, 2002 - August 15, 2017
The first GSP to join our family. Max was bred by Up N'Adam's Kennels in Connecticut. His intelligence and desire to please made him extremely easy and fun to train. Max won his first major in conformation as Best of Breed and also competed in AKC Rally, earning his Rally Novice title easily with a perfect score and fastest time at the Philadelphia National Dog Show. Rally Advanced was challenging, but Max took that title home as well. He earned his Junior Hunter title in consecutive tests with little formal training, very high scores, and nice compliments from the judges.
Max earned his Therapy Dog certification and became a favorite "friendly dog" for Canine Good Citizen evaluators and our demo-dog for training classes. He was ever the patient gentleman with each new litter of puppies and loved his cuddle time on the couch with us.
On August 15, 2017, we said goodbye to our dear friend. He lives on in his many get, and in our hearts, forever.

Seamus (pronounced SHAY-mus), is a sweet mush at home and does everything asked of him with gusto. His Junior Hunter title was earned easily with four consecutive qualifying legs. Seamus also loves obedience work and earned his Rally Novice title in three consecutive legs. He has also earned his first title in the Cyber Rally-O Dance Division. He is major-pointed in the breed ring, winning over some impressive competition.
Seamus excels at K9 NoseWork®. He earned his NW1 title in 5th place out of 38 entries and his NW2 title in 2nd place, placing 1st in the Interior Building Search and 2nd in the Exterior Search.
Seamus is the first and only German Shorthaired Pointer to have earned the NW3 ELITE title by passing NW3 three times in 1st place - fastest time overall!!!
He has also earned all NW3 element titles with placements: Containers, Interiors, Exteriors and Vehicles. We think he's found his calling!

Fiona's 2018 litter produced six gorgeous puppies and we just couldn't resist this guy. He started his show career at 4 months old in the Beginner Puppy class and at his first show won Best of Breed Puppy and Beginner Puppy Sporting Group Second!! At 6 months he won his first major show as Best of Winners and followed that a couple of months later by going 2nd in the impressive Bred By Exhibitor class at the German Shorthaired Pointer Club of America National Specialty Show. Another Best of Winners at 13 months gave him his second major win.
With no formal training, Donovan earned his Junior Hunter title with consecutive legs - one with a near-perfect score of 9.75!! Now training for his Senior title, he shows tons of promise. He's already begun training in K9 Nose Work and took 1st place in his first AKC Scent Work Container Novice search. He's earned his Canine Good Citizen title, an AKC Trick Dog title, and is training for a Rally title. We can't wait to see what the future holds for Donovan and all his litter mates.
