BREEDING VERSATILE HUNTING COMPANIONS TO THE BREED STANDARD. 





Welcome to our Website! Here at Wing And A Prayer Shorthairs we breed for health, temperament, conformation and performance.  Providing you the healthiest puppy possible from the best breeding stock is the essence of WAAPS. We hunt test AND TITLE our pups in both AKC and NAVHDA to prove their abilities.  We breed AKC Champions because we believe when you breed to the breed standard you're also breeding great hunting dogs.  We do every health test required by our breed club organization, The German Shorthaired Club Of America AND POST THOSE RESULTS IN PUBLIC.  We're here for you for the life of our puppies!

Hunting is our hobby, not dog shows.  25 years ago I married my husband who was raised in a hunting family.  He hunted the CA desert where wild quail and chukar were abundant.  We bought our first shorthair together that year, Champ.  Scott trained Champ himself and he was the finest hunter he's ever known... Champ is buried in Essex, CA where he hunted his entire life, where he loved life the most.  Till we meet again sweet Champ!
Fast forward about 3 years from the purchase of Champ, I put my 4 year old son Shane in his car seat to go with his dad for his first hunting trip.  I have that photo memory in my mind like it was yesterday.  Pictured below after Champ is my now 22 year old son Shane, my husband and Grandpa Scott Veeder who is the foundation of Wing And A Prayer Shorthairs.  
To this day all 5 of the Veeder Children enjoy the sport of upland hunting.  My daughter Megan can at times out shoot my son Shane.  Nolan, my baby, is shooting with supervision and can't wait to join the big boys.  


It's our goal to provide you the tools to enjoy the sport that we love the most.  We hope that you too will pass on your love of the sport to the next generation.  

Why do we sell our dogs to non-hunters?  Because these are great dogs!  They are house dogs 99% of the time anyway.  Are you an outdoors person who loves running, hiking, biking etc.?  This is a great family member for those who enjoy an active lifestyle.
