Welcome to Hunt'em Up Kennels "Puppies" page. Here you will find a list of characteristics we aim to produce in all of our GSP puppies. For information about upcoming litters, please refer to the Upcoming Litters page. For pictures of our puppies and information about them, please refer to each litter's individual page. Our purpose in breeding the versatile German Shorthaired Pointer is to improve the breed and provide our customers with the best GSP they have ever owned. The following is a list of characteristics we aim to produce in all of our German Shorthair puppies:
Our puppies will have their dew claws removed and tails docked at three days old. We will start worming our GSP puppies at two weeks old using Safeguard and continue this routine every two weeks until they are three months old. Any puppy remaining at our kennel past three months of age will be started on an appropriate schedule for complete deworming, heartworm prevention, and flea/tick/mosquito prevention.
All of our German Shorthaired Pointer puppies will also receive a 5 way vaccination at 5, 8, 11, and 14 weeks of age. They will also receive a bordetella (kennel cough) vaccine at 8 weeks of age. We start giving the 5 way vaccination at 5 weeks old so all of our GSP puppies will have at least two vaccinations before they leave Hunt'em Up Kennels. Remember, it will be your responsibilty to follow up on all needed vaccinations for your new GSP puppy. Please check with your veterinarian and get on an appropriate vaccination schedule for your area.
Your puppy can go home with you when they are 8 weeks old. I have made exceptions, in some cases, if the pup is picked up at Hunt'em Up Kennels and is ready to go to its new home. If the puppy is being shipped to you, they will need to be 8 weeks old. This is an airline requirement.
If Hunt'em Up Kennels ships out any of our German Shorthaired Pointer Puppies, the customer will be responsible for the cost of the pet carrier, vet check, airline ticket, and any additional vaccines your state or country will require before the puppy is shipped. Hunt'em Up Kennels will take care of all this for you. Call any time for pricing to ship out any of our young German Shorthaired Pointers, as it may vary. For more information please see: *Shipping*
