Wirehaired Pointing Griffons
Greenhorn Mountain Griffs next planned litter will be Winter '23/Spring'24.
We made the tough decision not to breed Sage and hope to have Bentley (PepperxGunther) through her health and field testing by then.
If she is anything like her Mom & Dad she should be pretty amazing!
We'll start taking applications again in the fall.
Our Griffs are part of our family! We love, raise, train and hunt with them. Our Griffs have exceptional hunting ability, temperament, confirmation and are registered with AKC & NAVHDA. All of our breeding stock have completed the AWPGA recommended healthy screenings and have a complete DNA profile/report publicly available, as well as posted on this site.
Greenhorn Mountain Spicy Pepper "Pepper"
We call her "Perfect Pepper", even though she may not be perfect, we think she's pretty darn close. We were hunting over her at 5 months and at 10 months she got the max score on the NAVHDA Natural Ability test. By the time we finished up our second hunting season in early 2018, I could honestly say she's the most naturally talented dog I've ever hunted over. Did I mention her nose, she's like the clean-up hitter, it's impressive to watch her find bird after bird in an area that was just run over by another dog. Remarkably, she's an even better dog around the family and in the house.
Shiok Ridge's B Spicy Chili "Chili"
Chili came to us from Wisconsin and is an amazing dog with a tight hunting coat. She's been a great addition to our hunting family. She's got a great nose and the most intense point you could ever ask for in a dog. She's a close hunter who instinctively backs. Aside from her prowess in the field, Chili is the ultimate lap dog. She loves, loves, loves, loves cuddling up with the family. If she's not in the field, she is curled up on a lap, at someone's feet or trying to figure out how to lay down with some part of her body touching a human. She automatically flips the switch from huntress to lap dog the minute she get's in the truck after a hunt or hike. She ended up a little taller than the breed standard and had some teeth issues early on, so we opted not to breed Chili but she's a great all around dog and a big part of our family!
Greenhorn Mountain Sassy Sage "Sage"
Sage was born 28 June 2018 and came to us from Idaho with all the makings of a great gun dog. She has been wonderful, she's super athletic, has a medium harsh coat, loves birds, picks things up quickly and is extremely inquisitive. Her first hunting season was all about birds, birds, birds!!! During her second season, she earned a NAVHDA Natural Ability Test Prize 1, had her first Grouse hunt, and got a chance to do some duck hunting in Louisiana and Arkansas. We had plans to spends a lot of time hunting upland game in Colorado, Nebraska and Kansas in 2020 but with COVID shutting schools/work places down we didn't get out nearly as much as we wanted. We got a shocker when we had her hips done, PennHip put her at the 51 percentile. We got a second opinion and made the tough call to take her out of the breeding program. We've had a lot of folks ask if they could take her off our hands but she's part of the family and I couldn't imagine our group of muppets without her at this point.
I don’t know why he chose me, but I am sure glad that High Country Gunther picked me as his human…. From the day I brought him home, this goofball has never ceased to amaze me. After earning his NAVHDA Prize 1 Natural Ability and AKC Junior Hunt Title we started working on his AKC Champion Title and recently began in the sport of dock diving. He is a 4 wheel drive bird hunting machine; there is no doubt when he is on point for a bird as he works the field over. Truly a versatile dog who’s only goal is to please me and I want to share him with all of you as he passes on his traits: a high prey drive, tremendous bird finding ability, tight wiry coat, lean but solid body and muscle tone with a heart as big as a giant would have.
