Wingshot Kennels ... versatile dogs for versatile people.... placing Vizsla puppies and Braque Francais puppies in active, loving homes.
Wingshot Kennels is located in Alpine, a small rural town in central Alabama. We are located about 2 hours from Atlanta & Montgomery; and about 1 hour from Birmingham. Our home sits on a hillside across from beautiful Logan Martin Lake. On 2 sides we are surrounded by the woodlands of YMCA Camp Cosby. We started with a small kennel, then enlarged it, to allow us to provide puppies for placement with other families who share the same type of love for active dogs & the outdoors as we do.
We have Vizsla's and Braque Francais (Pyrenees) and consider them all to be family members; they receive lots of loving attention. Both breeds have a sweet but enthusiastic personality, are eager to please, some are good hunters and others are a little too spoiled. All of our Vizsla's come from hunting lines and are registered with AKC . All of our Braque Francais are registered with NAVHDA and some have been cross registered with either CKC (Canada) , UKC, or with FDSB. Each litter of pups is registered with NAVHDA. All Puppies are born in our home. All puppies receive their 1st shot and several dewormings before leaving for their new homes and come with a written health guarantee and are vet checked. All puppies have their tails docked and dewclaws removed. The puppies get plenty of exercise and are handled & talked to daily. We take many precautions to insure that our puppies are healthy, happy and socialized and we try to make sure that they end up in the hands of a caring responsible owner. We want you to rest assured that we would not knowingly sell a defective puppy. We ask our new owners to take their pet ownership responsibilities seriously. Both a Vizsla and a Braque Francais will be your life long companion. Puppies are ready for new homes at 7 weeks of age. If you cannot come to visit us in person to select a pup, we can handle everything by phone and internet. We can sometimes make arrangements for personal delivery (part way or full) and the fee is based on the amount of travel. Some new owners prefer to fly here and back on the same day with their new puppy in the cabin of the airplane. Puppies cannot fly until they are 8 weeks old.
As pointing dog enthusiasts and breeders the goal of Wingshot Kennels is to breed dogs that are intelligent and responsive, have strong pointing instincts and drive, and are conformationally sound. They are bred to produce puppies that will have good conformation, temperament, intelligence, endurance, and proper range & bird finding ability. They are all day dogs that will give you all they have. Breeding the "best to the best" to maintain and hopefully improve the breeds.
If you are interested in starting your dog for hunting, please give Jeff a call. He can talk to you about training your bird dog. Some of our puppies have some "play time" with the fishing pole before they leave us for their new homes.
Please take a look at the other pages for more information on our family and both of the breeds. Older photo's are here on the website and newer photo's are on the Facebook page. The "links" page has good sites with relavent information. Feel free to contact us by phone or email with any questions you may have.
