    No, typical GSP - get the breed correct chubbsecurity ! I am sure pointer owners would not like this brown speckled thing to be classed as a pointer !

    This is the breed that I love and adore and as I am up to my 5th one now- I still love the breed to bits !

    Yes - sometimes it can be - 'Never let a chance go by as their motto' - if you are not au fair with what they are capable of and lots of times with these guys you really need eyes in the back of your what-evers !

    The video is really funny and I loved watching it ! You also have to watch out for bananas in your shopping or you are just left with stalks ! I could rattle on with heaps of other things - but - I don't want to be boring !

    AHHHHH AHHH Puppy farm,,,kerchew!
    Funny the directions to their "farm" are the same as a lady who used to (not sure if she still does) advertise puppies on "petlink" the number one site for puppy farms and dodgy breeders, although it could just be someone in the same street..

    Sorry Matt - Just my opinion, not wishing to sway you at all, just couldnt help putting in my 2c worth on my opinion of puppy farms.
    Do you have a link for where all this information comes from? The lists of dogs and puppies available all year?

    That ad is from Jan 2011, for one pup. And that may not be a huge price for a show quality BT, lots of showing and also an Endurance title in the direct family.

    Not trying to necessarily defend people but am wondering if it is easy to jump to conclusions sometimes. I have seem breeder websites with vast numbers of dogs listed. Until you realise they may span 30 or so years involvement in a breed it can seem surprising. Sometimes the clues are in the details.

    I have had pups available for the last ten months, the best part of a year. Seem excessive? Am I a puppy farmer?
    They are one litter.

    I suppose maybe having multiple breeds could turn some people off?! I probably would prefer a breeder that focused on one breed of dog. But then from what I've read I think they may use the BT as a stud!? Each to their own, there isn't enough information available on the internet to say whether they are any good or bad IMO. You would have to go to their house and see etc.

    My dog is advertised as a stud dog, yet has had one mating, to my own bitch for one litter. I used to have another breed, a couple of salukis that I showed in co ownership with their breeders. They were otherwise our pets. The male was available to stud (never used). My dogs at home, are my family first and foremost. If I show them, or occasionally breed them it is secondary to that.

    My only point being, face value can be a dangerous thing. Here we have a breeder that appears to have several decades of involvement in a breed, who has appropriate awards and titles and health testing certificates for her dogs, being publicly named as a puppy farmer in a negative sense, based on assumption and possible misinformation.

    Yes we should be careful we don't buy from someone disreputable, who doesn't have their dogs and their breeds' interests at heart. But equally we should be wary of tarring every breeder with the same brush.

    Unfortunately common sense is nt all that common these days, and passion often overwhelms it. A middle ground is the best place to stand and make important decisions.

    I personally don't think that it's a puppy farm. You saw the videos; what puppy farmer plays fetch with his dogs in the water? (assuming that is the breeder's Youtube channel, which is most likely).

    I think that people who are most scared of puppy farms can jump to conclusions sometimes, as Nattylou said. It's good to be cautious, but this is most likely a good breeder.

    Sorry, RileyJ.

    By accident I ended up with a bitsy type pointer dog.
    I thought EP by his colouring but his snout is not right, nor ears, nor coat length.
    The dog in the video looks exactly like mine (in profile) my boy is heavily speckled also.
    You can look in my Albums and tell me what you think.
    They are all old pictures I will post some more recent tonight.
    I am so glad to find a pointer owner on this forum.
    The only real info I have found has all been on US websites and forums.
    Can you post pics of yours?

    Okay, if we were to get a BC (which is looking likely at the moment, but you never know with this family ), do you think this breeder would be good: VO NRA YPA RK?
    The ad looks good, but I think that she breeds them several times a year because there's another litter that will be ready at the end of the month. Do you think that this is acceptable?
