These are the litters that we have proposed for this 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 will 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 2017: 

(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:

 


The following are proposed for spring/summer 2017:

 

Slick x Jazz

 

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 first litters were a smashing success; his pups extremely loving and pointing/backing naturally at an early age.

Jazz is a daughter of Hilts and Ember. Ember is Jet's littermate sister as well as Tomi's half-sister. Jazz is very sweet, an honest hunter and would love nothing more than to pal around with us all day if she could. She is incredibly intelligent and mellow, yet loves to play as well. She has beautiful coloration and is proving to be an excellent producer. She seems to improve upon anyone she is bred to, the sign of an excellent dam.

Should be smart, sleek, birdy, smart, loving, gorgeous and smart. Did I mention smart?

Questor or Mick x Gabby

Questor is our well-established older man here. He is everything you want in a dog; eye-catchingly beautiful, great coloration, tall and intense style, solid build and incredibly sweet nature. He is a true 42lbs gentleman! He has a close wide looping range, perfect for any foot handler, and his pups tend to retrieve well. He is one of my favorites, taking after his sire, our beloved Skye. Questor pups are usually in very high demand. In fact, I have very few of them due to such demand. This being the case, I plan on keeping more!

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.

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)! Her first litter to Indi produced some very nice pups. Very intelligent and capable Gordons. Character was not lacking in any of them! I cannot wait to see what she gives us from Questor. 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.

Gabby is another "whenever" kind of girl when it comes to coming into heat. Her pups are well worth the wait however. As beautiful as their mother and then some. This litter should be wonderfully sweet and incredible on birds. That Tomi/Questor cross is a real winner.

Stetson x Jess

Stetson is a Dual Champion. He has a beautiful intense point, good looks, not too big, lovely coat (straight), and almost best of all, gets along well with children, puppies and other males. A good sign of a wonderful disposition. He traces back to some Springset stock as well. We think he would make an excellent "out cross" for us!

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 quite 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 very capable bird dogs, professional like their mother. Jess also has a very collected, quiet way of moving. I am enamored with her!

This should be a spectacular litter. I can't wait! I keep telling myself that watched pots don't boil...

Questor or Slick x Amie, proposed 2017

Questor is our well-established older man here. He is everything you want in a dog; eye-catchingly beautiful, great coloration, tall and intense style, solid build and incredibly sweet nature. He is a true 42lbs gentleman! He has a close wide looping range, perfect for any foot handler, and his pups tend to retrieve well. He is one of my favorites, taking after his sire, our beloved Skye. Questor pups are usually in very high demand. In fact, I have very few of them due to such demand. This being the case, I plan on keeping more!

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 first litters were a smashing success; his pups extremely loving and pointing/backing naturally at an early age.

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! Her 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 catagory; 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!

These pups should be of good size, ranging in the upper 40's to mid 50's in size with the possibility of a few being higher and lower in that average. They should have a close wide looping pattern and should be able to hunt just about anything you put in front of them. These will be amazing dogs around young children, great family dogs. You simply can't go wrong here.

Amie seems to be the smart alec who likes to come into heat "\whenever". I'm beginning to think she is a valley-girl. When she comes in, she WILL be bred! And they should be incredible.

Slick x Penny, proposed summer 2017

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 first litters were a smashing success; his pups extremely loving and pointing/backing naturally at an early age.

Penny’s first litter to Slick was very fine and my first thought is to take her to back to Slick, which most likely I will do in the future. Indi has been a very fine sire however and I already have a fair amount of Slick pups this summer so I think I will try for Indi pups first.  She is smaller, although she has some size in her background (her sire Tomi was 52lbs), so it isn’t impossible for her to produce it. In fact, she has a couple of good sized pups from her breeding to Slick. She has a wonderful wide looping pattern, is crazy about birds and 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!

This will be the third repeat for this crossing. People are going ballistic over these pups. I don't blame them. They are as close to the perfect Gordon one can get. They are small (40-45lbs range), quiet, easy going in the home, great with kids, and incredible in the field. No fuss, no muss. Easy trainers. Simply fabulous. This is probably what your grandparents had with their Gordon Setter. Classy.
