Our Pointers are health tested and clear from hereditary diseases that would be passed on to any and all offspring. While we do not breed often, we do not breed any that have not passed their health testing and have been proven to perform the tasks the GSP was bred for. Of the available GSP puppies after we have chosen, none will be available with breeding rights. Some of the health testing that is performed here includes (but not limited to): Cone Degeneration, Degenerative Myelopathy, Hyperuricosuria, Type 2B von Willebrand Disease, and OFA testing. Which some of  these health issues can be seen in any breed, the German Shorthaired Pointer may be at a higher risk for some diseases and conditions. This is why it is extremely important that when adding a GSP puppy to your home, please choose a puppy from a breeder who health tests their working stock. 


The origins of the German Shorthaired Pointer began in the 1700's with selective breeding of dogs with specific working traits and natural abilities, German Hunters created what was described as "a staunchly pointing bird dog: a keen-nosed night trailer; a proven duck dog; a natural retriever on land and water, with pleasing confirmation and markings, and great powers of endurance; and an intelligent family watch dog and companion. " Needless-to-say, Rusty Fence Post Gun Dogs strives to preserve those traits and abilities by allowing our dogs to perform and excel the tasks the GSP was created to perform. We believe only dogs who are health tested and clear for genetic / hereditary illnesses and has been tested / proven to perform as the working dog and companion that the German Shorthaired Pointer was to be.
