Looking for WP griffon

Postby dyllan78 » Mon Dec 03, 2012 10:00 pm

I live in VA, and i am looking to buy a wirehair pointing griffon. Most of the good breeders are in the midwest to california. If anyone has any info that could help me please let me know.

There is no such breed.

Do you want a, German Wirehair Pointer or a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon? The Griffon is considered a French breed no matter what the country of origin.

Have you looked at the breeder section at V-Dogs? Some good ones there but far out numbered by a bunch of bad ones. Stay away from any that have a relationship with the AKC show ring and breeders who offer their dogs as pets. I assume you're looking for a hunting dog. The good breeders will only sell to hunters. Make sure their breeding stock has the proper coat. Soft and wooly is not a proper coat.

JT: I was just after the pedigree to pump up the local stuff. It's pretty bad here on the left coast but I get reports of good dogs every now and then. I think there are a few folks (breeders) actually trying these days. Wish I knew who they were.

If you are not a member of NAVHDA, you should join. They will have the litter records with test scores from breeders. That is where I would start.

I was in the same situation as you and came across a breeder in NC. You may want to contact Lorraine Rothrock. They're out of Greensboro, NC. I have an 8 month old WPG from her and am very pleased. Very attentive folks and are active in the local NAHVDA chapter. They are hunters. Their contact is samsngriffs@gmail.com
