English Setter Dog Breeding - JC Smith

Consistent with our emphasis on proving and hunting these dogs on wild birds, we seek to place puppies with hunting homes. Puppies will be ready to go after 7 ½ weeks of age, with veterinarian administered initial vaccinations, micro-chips, and certified BAER tests for bi-lateral hearing. Every litter is whelped in the house, kept clean and away from negative influences, and receives abundant direct contact and socialization. A modest deposit will secure your choice of a puppy in the order your deposit was received. You need to indicate if you wish a male or female in advance, and be prepared to pick up or otherwise select a pup at a time that enables all subsequent new owners an opportunity to bring home their new pup at around 8 weeks of age. We can work with you on shipping if truly necessary, with necessary additional expenses as incurred. In general, email is okay for making an initial contact. If you are seriously interested in a puppy to be your new field and family companion, we are likely to suggest an evening phone call for substantial exchange or information.

Going into the 2017/2018 winter season, we are glad to share information about out next anticipated litter from Sugar Creek Chiquita (aka Chica) to Jack Pine of Rum Creek. This breeding is expected to occur in early February, 2018. Here is more information about these dogs and the expected litter:

Sugar Creek Chiquita

“Chica” as we call her, is our pick from a 2015 breeding of our Pinecoble Josephine to October Mountain River. That breeding brought the best remaining original Ryman bloodlines into our program through River with the help of the Weisse’s of October Setters. She is a heavily marked orange belton with a perpetually happy manner in the house. In the field, Chica demonstrates great athleticism, strong natural retrieving instinct, intensity on birds, and a lot of dash and spirit within a moderate range. In her second year she has proven herself well on grouse and woodcock, retrieving graciously to hand and handling well with minimal direction.

Jack Pine of Rum Creek

Jack Pine comes from Mark Altemann’s Rum Creek program in lower Michigan We found him in the course of work started nearly a year ago to identify good potential sires for future breeding efforts. He is an evenly marked 70 pound blue belton dog with a strong history in his pedigree for sound hips, an easy fluid gait, and attentive and affable disposition. When we started looking for new sires we particularly searched for dogs that represent the best of the now retired Pinecoble kennel, and we found that in Jack Pine. His steady, level headed manner makes him easy to work with and comfortable for everyone to be around. When Jack Pine is not busy in the grouse and woodcock coverts of Michigan he makes the rounds as a certified therapy dog. Click this links to see Jack Pine’s pedigree and OFA Certificate. OFA Excellent.
