Northwoods Bird Dogs is now producing the seventh generation of English setters and fifth generation of pointers. Jerry and Betsy are committed to producing top quality dogs from the best dams and sires in the country. They strive for puppies that have it all—excellent physical conformation, superior instincts, intelligence and wonderful dispositions. With proper environment and training, their puppies will mature into outstanding dogs, whether in the woods, fields or in the home.
A limited number of litters is planned each year. Some puppies are available for sale while others will be owned and trained by Northwoods Bird Dogs.
Northwoods Parmigiano x Northwoods Rum Rickey
This is a first-time breeding for these outstanding young dogs. Both are hard hunting, strong bird finders that display the ultimate characteristics in a wild bird dog.
Northwoods Parmigiano (Sean) is a 48 lb., tri-color with a solid head. He is compact, leggy and strong. Sean is a “10” in motion with his lofty style and driving, effortless gait. His posture and intensity on point is electric and he will have the bird accurately located. He is a bold, tough dog in the field but has a kind disposition. He has pointed wild birds on the prairie, in the grouse woods and in the piney woods of Georgia. He is a natural backer and a soft-mouthed retriever.
As a derby-aged dog, Sean won derby and shooting dog stakes in the grouse woods. He’s also placed in horseback trials and shooting dog grouse stakes. Sean is owned by Paul Hauge.
Northwoods Rum Rickey is an athletic, 37-lb., dog with a square head and lightly ticked body. Like all the breeding dogs of Northwoods Bird Dogs, she is hunted and has proven to be a strong bird finder that naturally backs. Rickey has a beautiful, easy gait and is a close-working, easy-to-handle dog. The intensity she exhibits—whether pointing or backing—is uncommon. And when she points, the bird is right where she indicates.
Rickey was bred in early June and should whelp about August 10. Puppies are $1,095.
