Puppy News as of 10/19/2022

Gilly x Bob pups were born 8/13/22. Ruby x Bob pups were born 10/17. Puppies are currently being offered to folks on our deposit list. Any openings would be posted here. 

We expect some additional fall/winter litters as well, from Aspen x Grouser and Frida x Grouser. We may have openings on these litters, depending on what Mother Nature offers up and how that lines up with our current deposits. 

We feel like selecting the right breeder for you and your family is very important. Our mating plan is listed below. New deposits may be fulfilled right away, within a few months or up to a year, depending on your needs. Timing will depend on what you are looking for because we match folks to the right litter. 

Our puppies are guaranteed for 24 months for hips, eyes and cardiac health. At 8 weeks of age males and females are $2,400 plus tax. A $200 deposit will hold your spot in line for a pup and the deposit goes toward the purchase price. Puppy price at the time of deposit is good for up to one year, or until the first matching puppy is available, whichever is greater. All puppies are sold with AKC Limited Registration (this limits breedings rights/registration of offspring).

**All pups must be picked up at our kennel.

Puppy Deposit

$200

This non-refundable deposit is for a German Shorthaired Pointer puppy (with Limited AKC Registration). Puppies are currently priced at $2400 for males and females (plus tax) and the deposit goes towards the purchase price. The purchase price listed at the time of deposit is good for up to one year, or until the first matching puppy is available, whichever is greater (this excludes a customer designated timeframe to accept a puppy beyond one year in advance). Willow Creek places puppies by order of deposit date and by matching litters / characteristics to your requirements. Once a deposit is placed we will contact you and collect more information on your desired attributes in puppy.

More about our breeding program

We are a licensed breeder in the state of Minnesota and we are inspected annually by the Minnesota Board of Animal Health. License #745942.  We are also inspected about every two years by the American Kennel Club (AKC). Minnesota requires that we:

  • Keep adequate records (for sales, inventory and animal wellness)
  • Follow veterinarian protocols
  • Provide a veterinarian health certificate for each animal sold
  • Follow applicable rules and regulations in the event of health conditions that were present at the time of purchase.

Additional things we do to add value to our breeding program:

Health and wellness

  • Behavior and socialization activities for enrichment (field training & hunting, conditioning, human-animal and animal-animal interaction)
  • Environmental enrichment
  • Screening of entire breeding pack for brucellosis (two negative results per animal). Brucellosis is a bacteria affecting reproductive systems.
  • Annual comprehensive wellness exams by veterinarian, including on-site assessment
  • Adherence to veterinarian reocmmended vaccinations and health screenings

Facility Management

  • Comprehensive biosecurity plan
  • Emergency response plan

Continuing Education

  • Ongoing education for breeders and staff

Linen Donations Appreciated!

We use a lot of towels and blankets for our puppies and crates. Instead of buying new linens we do our best to utilize and recycle old, worn, stained or unwanted items. If you happen to be cleaning out your closets and you have unwanted towels, blankets or sheets feel free to bring them to us. We don't mind stains or tears and the puppies don't either! Thanks for your consideration.
