Superior Pointers - Fine Bird Dogs - Elhew Pointers

Spring 2017 Litters

In late 2016/early 2017, we will breed five exceptional pure Elhew females to three of Striking Elhew Mack's most impressive, proven sons. Striking Elhew Rex is an outstanding young male with impeccable Elhew gun dog genetics. The conformation and temperament of his first litters are exemplary, and the litters unusually uniform and consistent. Rex's pups are proving to be precocious in the field, with an abundance of natural ability. As Bob Wehle might observe, they are "genetically trained". Rex will be bred to Striking Elhew Gitche Gumee, Striking Elhew Sniper, and Striking Elhew Piper.

Striking Elhew Boss will be bred to our proven producer of class companion gun dogs, Striking Elhew Haley, in late 2016. Boss is a powerfully built Mack son with the conformation, temperament, and performance characteristics required of a stud dog.

Striking Elhew Zorro, an exceptional young male sired by Mack out of a daughter of Ch. Elhew Explorer, will be bred to proven producer, Striking Elhew Sophie. Zorro is an impressive physical specimen with a great temperament who is well-proven on wild birds. He was completely finished on game by noted trainer, Sherry Ebert.

Boss is a well-made, classy, athletic, 63 lb. dog accomplished on multiple species of wild birds. He is one of the best of the many outstanding males that Mack has produced to date. Boss hunts at a comfortable, appropriate range in all terrain, and handles kindly. He is a natural retriever.

Haley is an exciting, drop dead gorgeous, 44 lb. Mack daughter, with uncommon natural ability. She is fast, athletic, and retrieves naturally. Haley is equally accomplished on forest and prairie grouse. Pups from her first three litters by Mack's son, Rex, are proving to be outstanding companion gun dogs..

Most of the genetics of this promising litter are derived from Bob Wehle's Elhew Strike x Elhew Kiwi "nick", proven to produce outstanding natural gun dogs. Elhew Jefferson, National Shooting Dog Champion Elhew Snakefoot's champion-producing son, appears four times in the fourth and fifth generation of this impressive pedigree. Additionally, these pups will be the genetic equivalent of direct Striking Elhew Mack offspring. They will be fancy, compliant, natural bird dogs and great family companions. This promising breeding will produce orange pups.

The incomparable Elhew Strike x Elhew Kiwi gun dog genetics are the primary influence in this pedigree, with an injection of National Shooting Dog Champion, Elhew Snakefoot "blood" through a quadruple cross to his champion producing son, Elhew Jefferson.
