    Pridominatly white GWP Breeders?

    Was at a game fayre in Cheshire at the weekend and I got chatting to a chap with a GWP pup. It was totaly white with a brown head and a couple of very dark patches on his bum. We got chatting as I had my GWP with me.

    I asked which breeder he got him from and he said a game keeper in South Wales who made you prove you could work a dog and were going to work it before he sold him the pup. It was a 1 off litter.

    Anyway. My question is. Which breeders breed the white ones as I really like them but, thought they were more of an American thing.

    Eric (the pup) had a lovely face. The same sort of expressions as my Lottie and the devil in his eye like my girl. Thats why I was so taken.

    Spook from the Andsal kennels is not dissimilar to that. I was really tempted to get a pup from him from the breeder that bred my Slovak, but wisely thought against it!

    I have a friend who has a predominantly white GWP, will try and find out her breeding.

    I think it's quite frowned upon in the UK, you wont see many of them about and start speaking to GWP folk and not alot like predominantly white, as you say, it's a US preference.

    I actually quite like mainly white GWP's, and GSP's come to think of it.

    Found a picture of Ann and Lottie, with her KC name:

    Spook has that look. It's a look my dog has in her eye. Can't discribe it though. I really like the white one's.
    Will check out the breeers websites.

    The other thing I want is BIG. Some GWP's are a bit on the small side. Mind you. They do seem to be the Irish ones.

    I know Benreeda has/had a white one. She is in Aberdeen. Not my cup of tea though.

    Remember wires are a medium sized hunting breed so doesn't want to be too big. When i was showing mine about 5 years ago, they were very big then so they must have gone the other way, but suspect the reason behind it.

    Are'nt all GWP's deaf ??????????????????????????/ Ha ha

    My Lottie is big for a bitch but, is dwarfed by my pals male. Her other male is big too.

    I like to be able to touch my dogs head without having to bend down.

    When I attended the GWP Meet the Breed Day a couple of years ago, I do remember thinking that there seemed to be some seriously oversized dogs about, far too big for what the breed should be IMO.

    The breed standards says between 23.5 and 26.5 inches tall (why not just round the number up or down?) and between 25-34kg for males. I always think Flynn is fairly small but he stands 25" tall and is 32kg so (even though he isnt full GWP) correct for breed standard. For the work they do, you really wouldnt want them any larger, surely?

    Is your Slovak an Andsal dog?

    Sally has never bred any Slovaks, apart from the accidental mating which produced Flynn's litter, and then she sold the dog on.

    I see Spook shares some common ancestors with Flynn. I also notice he has Bryantscroft Wigeon in his pedigree. I remember Rory Major himself telling me that Wigeon was a poor hunter (we were discussing Flynn's pedigree), I wonder how Spook fares.

    Spook hasn't produced any pups for absolutely ages, perhaps he's been moved on?

    No, Maxine. Her breeder used Spook on one of his GWP's a couple of years ago. Like I said, I was sorely tempted but thought better of it. One nutter is enough :lol:

    You were considering a GWP as well as your Slovak? That sounds like quite a challenge!

    I like a challenge. :mrgreen: In all honestly I can't afford another one so three is my limit for the forseeable future.

    3. Bluddy hell. I can only cope with 1. Actually, I like the idea of 2 but, in reality, when we are on my bed curled up in front of the TV I think. This would'nt be the same with 2. I do like the 1 to 1 we have. She is a total mummies girl. Just a nutter as well. Think Animal from the muppets. That was the first thing that came into my head when I 1st set eyes on her. She's 2nd hand.
