These are the litters that we have proposed for this coming season.  Please note that if the breeding has been made there will be a due date after the litter title and if it has not yet been made, it may be noted as "proposed" with a guessed date of availability.   Some of these breedings may not take place or sires may change. Man proposes and God disposes! However, while the sires may change the litter characteristics should stay the same.  Deposits placed early ensures “dibs” on that litter.

For more information on how the Springset deposit works, please see our Costs And Book Orders page.

Thank you!

 

Proposed litters for 2018: 

(Please note that God is in charge of ovulation and conception.  Sires may change in some cases with another compatible sire)

 

NOW TAKING DEPOSITS ON:

 

Django x Amie

Django, formerly known as Jayne, is a Jet son out of a daughter of Mollie, Questor's granddam. He is an absolute lover with great style and closer pattern. He also happens to be quite the ham; he stops and poses for the camera whenever he sees one on him! I don't often get the chance to breed to him, but this year I am making an effort as I don't want to lose this line through Mollie.

Amie is a daughter of Hilts, our fun-loving, hard hunting, water diving and retrieving brainiac. He has an amazing sense of humor that he tends to pass on to his pups. My father would call this dog one of the greats. I can certainly call him very unforgettable as he makes quite the impression! Amie's mother is a favorite, Dolly. Dolly produces very sweet tempered, intense bird dogs who are amazing in the home and with children. Amie herself is in that category; incredibly sweet, willing to please, play, and clean a field in no time at all with strong intensity. Strong being an understatement...this girl has moves!

 

 

Rey x Evie

Rey is our outcross from Tamik Gordons, having some Springset in his lineage. He is incredibly sweet, has a wonderful flat coat and will end up fully maturing in the low 50lbs range. He is quite a character and tries very hard to be a good boy. Sometimes his mischief (he is quite inquisitive) can lead to uh-oh moments (not often), and then he is Very Contrite (not sensitive but apologetic)! A lovable guy with good style and look.

Evie is Minx and Night's littermate sister. She is bright in color where Minx and Night are dark. Evie favors her great-grandmother, Tami. She favors her so much that I feel I have gone back in time and often do double takes. Evie is our class clown; she talks and tells you what she feels is fair. Sometimes she scolds me for scolding her! Quite the character and uber smart too. A classy dog, close to perfect. She has a close wide looping pattern and is a dream to work.

Hunter x Gabby (summer)

Hunter is another outcross of Dual Champion AFC R/U NFC Carolina’s All Hat, No Cattle, MH (aka Stetson) and our Jess. He is a solidly built boy with a fabulously biddable way about him. He is stunning to look at and I feel has a great future here as a sire. Strong desire for birds and to please, easy easy easy around the house and in the field, I am excited about this dog.

Gabby is our beautiful daughter of Tomi and Jenny. Both parents were stunning in looks and so is Gabby. She enjoys lots of attention, lots of birds (any kind), lots of children and long walks on the beach (sorry, had to add that last one although it true)! She is a very intelligent and a very capable Gordon who also loves to talk. Gabby is 45 lbs, has a wide looping pattern but can close in thicker cover nicely. She is a granddaughter of Norm's famous Sarah, his competition and seminar dog. You won't go hungry with any of her pups hunting for you.

Rey x Jess

Rey is our outcross from Tamik Gordons, having some Springset in his lineage. He is incredibly sweet, has a wonderful flat coat and will end up fully maturing in the low 50lbs range. He is quite a character and tries very hard to be a good boy. Sometimes his mischief (he is quite inquisitive) can lead to uh-oh moments (not often), and then he is Very Contrite (not sensitive but apologetic)! A lovable guy with good style and look.

Jess (short for Gorgeous), is one of my favorite's and quite frankly, possibly the closest thing to perfect that I can think of. She is incredibly intelligent but in a quiet way (meaning that she doesn't use it against you!), incredibly loyal, intensely birdy and has a strong retrieve. She is my mother hen; she takes good care of me! Her pups are extremely capable bird dogs, professional like their mother. Jess also has a very collected, quiet way of moving. I am enamored with her!

Rey x Mae

Rey is our outcross from Tamik Gordons, having some Springset in his lineage. He is incredibly sweet, has a wonderful flat coat and will end up fully maturing in the low 50lbs range. He is quite a character and tries very hard to be a good boy. Sometimes his mischief (he is quite inquisitive) can lead to uh-oh moments (not often), and then he is Very Contrite (not sensitive but apologetic)! A lovable guy with good style and look.

Mae is a daughter of Indi and Zoey. She is a serious bird dog and also happens to be a water nut. She is sweet and loving, a cuddler, playful and fairly fearless. She has a fabulous flat coat, is a talker and has wonderful intensity. Her style is not tall but classic. A wonderfully fun dog. Everyone’s favorite pet, hunter and playmate.

Rey x Minx

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 has a stunningly flat coat and beautiful coloration. 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.

Minx is a daughter of Zack and her mother is the exquisite little Dee (Dedra). The wonderful thing about Dee, is that she produced small Gordons (1935 Standard) These little Gordons can hunt forever and a day for days in a row. They are all incredibly sweet and trustworthy. The Gordons that your grandfathers talked about. She produced fantastically. In fact, she did such a great job, that we at Springset strongly believe that it is Gordons like her that are worth the gold mine; the true Gordons that will end up saving the breed (again) when all of the other Gordons get too big. She produced some incredibly fabulous dogs for us. Three of which I have here: Night, Minx, Evie, and now Maggie as well.

Slick x Penny

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. He is two years old and 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.

Penny is a Tomi daughter out of Ember. She has a wonderful wide looping pattern, is crazy about birds and is very loving. In the field is her happy place, but when she is in the home, she loves nothing more than to have someone petting her or better yet, a horde of children to adore her (and her back at them). She is a real lover. She also talks; tell her how wonderful she is and she will agree with you!

As much as I would like to breed her to someone different, I find that I am still looking for MY pup from this crossing! I sadly let him go from the last breeding and am still kicking myself. So, here we are at it again. Perhaps this time, I will keep more than one...

Hunter x Maggie

Hunter is another outcross of Dual Champion AFC R/U NFC Carolina’s All Hat, No Cattle, MH (aka Stetson) and our Jess. He is a solidly built boy with a fabulously biddable way about him. He is stunning to look at and I feel has a great future here as a sire. Strong desire for birds and to please, easy easy easy around the house and in the field, I am excited about this dog.

Maggie is a little sweetheart with all of the intensity and bird ability of her dam, Dedra.  She is quiet, loving and playful like her sire Slick. Everything in the original Gordon package, this girl has it all, tall style, quiet, loving demeanor, loyalty, trustworthy sweetness and wonderful smooth, flat coat with excellent coloration.

Hunter x Minnie

Hunter is another outcross of Dual Champion AFC R/U NFC Carolina’s All Hat, No Cattle, MH (aka Stetson) and our Jess. He is a solidly built boy with a fabulously biddable way about him. He is stunning to look at and I feel has a great future here as a sire. Strong desire for birds and to please, easy easy easy around the house and in the field, I am excited about this dog.

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.

Zack x Sunshine

Zack is undeniably an incredible dog and sire. He can do it ALL. He can hunt close cover and then go wide open without any effort. He has such fluid and dynamic movement that it simply takes your breath away. Anyone who knows dog movement and has seen Zack is simply agog at how this dog cannot put a foot down wrong. He has been a very good sire, meeting all of my expectations. My only wish is that I had more females that I could breed him too. He has high style, is incredibly bold, high intensity with VERY strong pointing desire. This dog will point just about anything, he wants to point so badly. He also has good retrieve, loves to play with puppies of any age, is non-aggressive and loves children. He is 55lbs, dark and elegant.

Sunshine is Rey’s sister, from Tamik Gordons. She has an excellent coat, beautiful coloring, a wonderful intensity on point and is a bit of a playful smart alec. She does like to please but is also a bit of a mischief maker with a sense of humor. For instance, she thought is quite a lark to eat that $60.00 cash that fell out of my pocket and then try to look innocent! She is very sweet and loving, and if I’m not shaking my head at her antics, then I’m smiling. A real character

Django or Jamaican x Zephyr

Django, formerly known as Jayne, is a Jet son out of a daughter of Mollie, Questor's granddam. He is an absolute lover with great style and closer pattern. He also happens to be quite the ham; he stops and poses for the camera whenever he sees one on him! I don't often get the chance to breed to him, but this year I am making an effort as I don't want to lose this line through Mollie.

OR

Jamaican is a son of Tomi and out of Brenna, a Questor daughter. He is very handsome, driven to be a great bird dog, family guy and he certainly wouldn't mind being a sire for me either I'm sure! He is 55-60lbs, has a beautiful coat, flat with long feathering. He adores children.

Zephyr is Hunter’s sister from Stetson and Jess. She is a smaller, darker version, who loves to please, has a very easy way about her and loves to cuddle and play. When she is on birds, she is fantastic. She is simply stunning and impresses everyone who meets her. She is exactly what I was looking for from this cross.
