Superior Pointers - Fine Bird Dogs - Elhew Pointers

Spring 2020 Litters

In the spring/early summer of 2020, we expect to produce a total of seven promising 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 fundtional 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 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.


Rex x Piper

Rex

Piper

Striking Elhew Piper

Rex is a complete, natural bird dog, whose first eight litters out of five different females are exceptional in all respects. His offspring are proving to be equally proficient on both prairie and woodland grouse. Every indication is that Rex, like his sire, is a prepotent producer of outstanding, natural, companion gun dogs.

Piper is a classy, athletic, substantial, 48 lb. young female. Although accomplished on multiple species of wild birds, she is at her best on ruffed grouse. Piper hunts at a comfortable range in all terrain, handles effortlessly, stands well off game, and retrieves naturally.

Bob Wehle's proven Elhew Strike x Elhew Kiwi companion gun dog genetics primarily influence this litter pedigree. National Shooting Dog Champion Elhew Snakefoot "blood" is also present - most notably in his champion producing sons Elhew Crazy Horse and Elhew Discovery. These promising pups will be the genetic equivalent of direct Striking Elhew Mack offspring, and will be raised in Siren, Wisconsin, by Piper's proud owner, Mike Smith. Black, liver, and orange pups are expected.


Rex x Layla

Layla

Striking Elhew Layla

Rex is a classy, athletic dog with a smooth, fluid gait who is a proven performer and producer. He hunts at a comfortable range in all terrain, and handles multiple species of wild birds in an exemplary manner. Layla is a well-made dog with a confident temperament, and is well-proven on wild birds. She is a granddaughter of Mack, and Ch. Elhew Fibber McGee - arguably the two most prepotent Elhew sires of the past two decades. Layla, like Rex, is a proven producer of class companion gun dogs.

This breeding concentrates the impeccable Elhew gun dog genetics of Striking Elhew Mack with an infusion of "blood" from Champion Elhew Fibber McGee, National Champion Elhew Snakefoot's best producing son. These pups will exhibit the conformation, temperament, performance characteristics, and genetics necessary to establish or improve any breeding program, and will be outstanding companion gun dogs. They will be whelped and raised in East Bethel, Minnesota by Layla's owners, Tim and Michelle Olson.
