Rock Creek German Shorthaired Pointers

We are Rock Creek German Shorthaired Pointers!


We are excited about our partnership with Flying High K9's to bring a couple of excellent girls to Iowa. Watch here for updates about their careers, health testing, and breeding plans.


STARTED AND AVAILABLE 

Justice (pictured above) is looking for a performance/hunting/active pet home. She has been started on pen raised quail, duck, and chukar. She has also been exposed to wild pheasant, turkey, and dove. She has completed a gun intro. On November 18, 2019 she completed her AKC S.T.A.R. puppy obedience class. She knows sit, down, kennel, and touch. She is crate/potty trained. She is working on place, recall, and heeling. She is loving, smart, and active. She enjoys learning and is very trainable. I can also see her "processing" information to see if it is "correct". She does well with other dogs, but we are working on her initial seeing of other dogs as she will bark. She loves people. This beautiful liver roan female has been started on detection dog training. She has started swimming. She will be sold on a spay contract. She is micro-chipped, prepaid AKC registration, is current on rabies (Exp 12/23). We are asking $1800. Please email Marie with questions or download our puppy questionnaire. Check out her album on my facebook page for more pictures: Justice. She is a bunny catching/killing machine. She has caught 7 wild rabbits all on her own in the last 7 weeks in our yard. She is not suitable for a home with an indoor pet rabbit.
