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)

The following are proposed for fall 2017:

 

Slick x Dolly, due July 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.

Dolly is one of our resident characters. She is a lovely girl with excellent color. She is very intense on birds, tennis balls (can almost fit 3 in her mouth at once), and loves attention and kids. Kids with cookies is even better. She loves to talk. She'll tell you everything and be very jovial about it too! She has a close wide looping pattern and is a good retriever.

This should be a fun pup, close wide looping pattern, extremely affectionate, great coloring, and overall, more fun than a barrel of monkeys.

Slick x Penny, due July 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.

Slick x Lily, due July 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.

Lily is a daughter of Zack and her mother is Dolly. She is very sweet, starting off sensitive and as she has come into her own, quite talkative about everything, just like her mother. She is dark like her father, intense on point like both parents and will knock your socks off in the field while winning your heart in the home.

These pups will mature mostly in the mid 40's range, have bold style in the field and be loving in the home. Will be great with children too. These pups will be excellent for hunting just about anything close to mid range. This will not be a far ranging litter.

Hilts x Dahlia, proposed fall 2017

Hilts is our resident genius meets comedian. He is incredibly smart, likes to weigh consequences, is very affectionate and fun. He is a fantastic water dog; strong swimmer and will dive for birds. He has a powerful build with a fluid movement. He is very bold in the field and is a great working partner. This dog is incredible! My father would have said he is one of the greats.

Dahlia is a daughter of Aiden and Jess. She has her father's larger build, quiet demeanor and her mother's beautiful smile and fluid movement. It's almost like her feet don't touch the ground. Dahlia loves to please and is very content to stay by your side quietly, enjoying all the loving you can give her. In the field, she can really move and cover ground. This dog is no heavy footed dog. She has a wide looping pattern.

I expect these pups to be very quiet and loving in the house but should clean a field up nicely. Pups should mature around 50-60 lbs and be very striking in looks. Real attention getters.

Hilts x Evie, proposed fall 2017

Hilts is our resident genius meets comedian. He is incredibly smart, likes to weigh consequences, is very affectionate and fun. He is a fantastic water dog; strong swimmer and will dive for birds. He has a powerful build with a fluid movement. He is very bold in the field and is a great working partner. This dog is incredible! My father would have said he is one of the greats.

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.

Pups should have a close wide looping pattern, be very talkative (have a word for everything!), be very very social, be excellent on birds and have enough comedian in them to make life fun. Will be very bold in the field and love water as both parents love the water!
