Superior Pointers - Fine Bird Dogs - Elhew Pointers

2020 Litters

In 2020, we expect to produce a total of six promising Elhew pointer litters from breeding quality sires and dams well-proven on multiple species of wild birds. The pure, undiluted, Elhew "blood" of these litters represents the best companion gun dog genetics of Bob Wehle's incomparable bloodline, as well as the best of the Superior Pointers' breeding program.

Bob Wehle often noted that if the average dog in each generation of a breeding program wasn't of better overall quality than the average dog of the prior generation, the breeder was "doing something wrong". The 2020 crop of Superior Pointers' pups will be the classiest, most natural bird dogs, with the best temperament and functional conformation, that we have produced. We believe that Mr. Wehle would be pleased with the demonstrated continuous improvement of the Superior Pointers' companion gun dog breeding program.

A $250 deposit, refundable if we fail to produce the pup that you have specified, reserves your prospect.

Axel x Moxie

Axel

Striking Elhew Axel

Moxie

Striking Elhew Moxie

Axel is an impressive double Mack grandson with the conformation, temperament, and performance characteristics required of a breeding quality dog. Moxie is a well made, fast, athletic, young female with an excellent temperament. As shown in the above photo, she backs naturally with admirable style and intensity. Both Axel and Moxie are well proven on multiple species of wild birds.

These two fine young dogs represent the best of the current generation of Superior Pointers. This promising litter will, on paper, be the genetic equivalent of direct Striking Elhew Mack offspring, but with the greater genetic diversity of four – rather than a single – maternal lines. These promising pups will be whelped and raised in Bethel, Minnesota by Tim and Michele Olsen, Moxie’s devoted owners. All four colors are anticipated.


Riley x Kate

Riley

Striking Elhew Riley

Kate

Striking Elhew Kate

Riley is a well made, solidly built, athletic, young male out of two truly exceptional wild bird dogs, and is a littermate to our outstanding young female, Striking Elhew Josephine. Kate is a beautiful young female with a great temperament, over whose points literally hundreds of pheasants have been taken.

This breeding is rich in the Strike x Kiwi genetics which Bob Wehle often noted produced his best gun dogs, and represents the heart of the Superior Pointers breeding program. These promising pups will be whelped and raised in Ft. Wayne, Indiana by Kate’s proud owners, Andy Giegold and Bill Gabers. All four colors are expected.


Axel x Jo

Axel

Striking Elhew Axel

Josephine

Striking Elhew Josephine

Axel is a handsome double grandson of our foundation sire, Mack. He is a classy, powerful, athletic dog with a great temperament, and is well-proven on six species of wild birds.

Jo is a beautiful young female with a confident tremperament. She is fast, athletic, exhibits a smooth fluid gait, and appears to "float" through the woods and over the prairies. Jo is equally proficient on both forest and prairie grouse.

Superior Pointers' prepotent foundation sire, Striking Elhew Mack, appears four times in the third generation of this litter pedigree. These pups will be, "on paper", the genetic equivalent of direct Mack offspring. Their genetic diversity is, however, enhanced by the presence and influence of four exemplary female lines, rather than just one. All four colors are anticipated.



Maverick x Katie

Maverick

Striking Elhew Maverick

Katie

Timber Creek Elhew Katie

Maverick is a well-made, powerfully built, 56 pound, double Mack grandson, with a great temperament who is well proven on multiple species of wild birds. Like his sire, Rex, he is especially proficient on ruffed grouse. Katie is a solidly built, 46 pound female, sired by a littermate to Striking Elhew Zorro out of a daughter of Pinehill Elhew Damascus. She is a competent wild bird dog, with a nice, confident temperament.

Superior Pointers’ foundation sire, Striking Elhew Mack, appears three times in the third generation of this impressive litter pedigree. These pups will make “brag” gun dogs, and great family companions. This promising litter will be whelped and raised in Cohasset, Minnesota by Earl Williams and his family. Black, liver, and orange pups are expected.

Striking Elhew Samantha

Rex is a complete, natural bird dog and proven sire, whose twelve litters out of seven different females are exceptional in all respects. His offspring are equally proficient on both woodland and prairie grouse. Rex, like his sire, is a prepotent producer of outstanding, natural, companion gun dogs.

Sam is an attractive, fast, athletic, hard hunting 43 lb. female who goes to game quickly and exhibits exceptional style and intensity. She quarters naturally, and hunts at a comfortable range in all terrain. Sam is a frozen semen daughter of our foundation sire, Striking Elhew Mack, and out of his, and Alabama Shooting Dog Champion Elhew Fibber McGee's, granddaughter.

This impressive litter pedigree is comprised primarily of Elhew Strike x Elhew Kiwi proven gun dog genetics, with an infusion of National Shooting Dog Champion, Elhew Snakefoot "blood" through his best producing sons, Elhew Jefferson and Elhew Fibber McGee. These promising pups will be the genetic equivalent of direct Striking Elhew Mack offspring. They will make classy, athletic, natural bird dogs. All four colors are expected.

Striking Elhew Zorro

Sophie

Striking Elhew Sophie

Zorro is a well-made, handsome, young Mack son with a great temperament. He was completely finished on game by acclaimed trainer, Sherry Ebert, and is a proven outstanding performer on six species of wild birds. Zorro hunts at an appropriate range in all terrain, handles kindly, and retrieves naturally.

Sophie is an attractive, classy, athletic, 43 lb. female, and a proven producer of class gun dogs. She is hunted almost exclusively on Michigan ruffed grouse, a species on which she is exceptionally proficient. Sophie backs and retrieves naturally.

This repeat breeding of these two proven wild bird dogs concentrates Bob Wehle's widely acclaimed Elhew Strike x Elhew Kiwi companion gun dog genetics. National Shooting dog champion Elhew Snakefoot, secondarily influences this pedigree through his champion-producing sons Elhew Discovery and Elhew Jefferson. These promising pups will be the genetic equivalent of direct Striking Elhew Mack offspring. All four colors are possible. Pups will be whelped and raised in Lapeer, Michigan, by Sophie's proud owners, Mike and Tammy Paladino.
