Welcome to the
Nuthatch Litter & Puppy
Here at Nuthatch we believe that every puppy should become an important member of a family. Puppies, like children, are a lot of work. They need to be trained, given proper medical care (vaccinations, etc), socialized, and, most importantly, loved. If you cannot make the time and money commitments necessary to provide the above then we think you would be better off with a different kind of pet.
We also believe in responsible breeding. A responsible breeder cares where his or her puppies are - for the duration of their life. Responsible breeders vaccinate and register their puppies. They provide health guarantees and do the appropriate health certifications on the parents prior to breeding them. For Siberian Huskies and German Shorthaired Pointers, those health certifications should include hip (OVC or OFA) and eye (CERF or SHOR) clearances. It is illegal in Canada to present an unregistrable dog as a purebred. It is also illegal to charge extra for papers for your puppy.
We occasionally have available young adult dogs for adoption and also foster dogs. Our fostering program, allows us to place young dogs in homes where they can enjoy all the privileges of being the only (or one of a few) pets in the house as opposed to being one of many here at the kennel. The dogs may have finished their show careers and be beginning their careers as stud dogs or brood bitches. They are fostered with a family throughout their show and breeding career and then permanently retired to the foster family. Most of our foster dogs are females who are less than two years old. To learn more about our fostering program, please visit our fostering page or email us.

Having said all that, Nuthatch is pleased to announce the following upcoming litters:
German Shorthaired Pointers
Limerick (Nuthatch's Funny Girl) has been bred to Dundee (BISS Am Can Ch Nuthatch's Snowy River Rider). Puppies are due in mid-June, 2015. There will likely be solid liver and ticked puppies available. Please contact us for more details.
Priority will be given to the homes that will love and care for them best. Would I like you to show/field test/compete with your dog? Absolutely! but my priority is loving homes first and foremost.
Starting in 2013 the CKC is introducing altered (Neutered) classes at regular CKC shows. If you are interested in showing your dog but do not like the idea of keeping an intact dog, you can now explore this option. Ask me about it. Likewise, I am always looking for help at dog shows. If you would like to come and see what a dog show is like and help me with the dogs, I would love your assistance. Email me!
Please contact us for further information.
Reservations are strongly recommended as we usually have a waiting list.
