Line Bred "Greif/EsserGreif" Hunting Litter

"Sambuca" is a very balanced dog, with a beautiful layback of shoulders, lots of angles in the rear, and effortless movement.  He has plenty of bone, a very dark dense/harsh coat, and that great "Greif/EsserGreif" head with beautiful dark "Almond Eyes". He is a big boy, who stands @  26" with a weight of approx 75 lbs.  "Sambuca" is out of the FSS Shorthairs Kennel; a Line Bred "GREIF"/"EsserGreif"  Breeding to our stud Axel, in which we were able to combine the best of the old Pacific NW "Greif" lines with the great old Mid West "EsserGreif" lines. It has been our goal to preserve much of these great old lines. "Sambuca" is a very beautiful and sweet boy. He is a welcome addition to our breeding program.

"Sambuca" shows many of the traits of his ancestors. He has a wonderful temperament, and a way of winning hearts, exhibiting that old "Greif" charm.  "Sambuca" finished his Show Championship easily in 3 weekends of showing, and earned a Sweepstakes placement at the 2016 GSPCA NSS. He then went to WI to Train with Tracy Harmeyer of Krystal Creek Kennels, where he earned his Junior Hunter and a Prize 1 NAVHDA Natural Ability title.  "Sambuca"  is a very biddable "Gun Dog" with an outstanding nose, a passion for the hunt, and a love of water. We have great plans for this beautiful young boy.

"Gretchen" is a lovely little line bred Greif bitch. She stands at  22 " with an approx weight of 50 lbs, & a Med Dense/Med Harsh Coat. She has a beautiful effortless gait, a lovely Greif Head  and plenty of bone.  She has her Junior Hunter and a Prize1 NAVHDA Natural Ability Titles.  "Gretchen" is a sweet tempered little girl who is a very biddable bitch, has tons of natural ability, carries a nice high tail, and has a great little nose.  She is a very affectionate house companion, but she is all business in the field.

We should get a very "standard" size "Solid Liver" GSP from this breeding. The numerous National Field Champions, Dual Champions, Amateur Field Champions, AKC Field Champions, and GSPCA Hall of Fame Dogs in their immediate backgrounds, will provide these puppies with outstanding hunting and field potential.
