BREEDING VERSATILE HUNTING COMPANIONS TO THE BREED STANDARD


Proud breeder, owner or co-owner of award winning German Shorthaired Pointers including a 2016 Best In Show Winner, multiple Top 25 Nationally Ranked Winners, 29 AKC Champions, Grand Champions, Senior Hunters or Junior Hunters.  MORE INFO


Awards and titles aside, I'm most proud that my Shorthairs are exceptional family companions. 









Welcome to our website!  Here at WAAPS we breed for temperament, type, health and performance.  We breed AKC Champions because we believe when you breed to the breed standard you're also breeding great hunting dogs.  We hunt test our dogs in AKC and NAVHDA field events to prove their performance abilities.  

We health test our dogs and report the results to the Orthopedic Foundation of Animals.  We do every heath test requirement set forth by our breed club, The German Shorthair Pointer Club of America.

Dam:  Wing And A Prayer's Wings Of Hope V Countryside JH NApzII 


Sport finished his SH at age 1 year.  While his SH title is due to great training, I do believe trainability is an inherited trait.  Please take your time to look at his pedigree.  It takes a huge investment to finish a dog to Master Hunter and we've chosen Sport to do it! 

Sport is by no means a close hunter but he is not too far out either.  He's bred to be a foot hunter.  We're not on horseback or quads.  We want a dog who hunts for us and that's exactly what he does.  

Sport has never been force fetched due to his natural retrieving instincts.  From the time he was an 8 week old puppy he was retrieving the feather wrapped bumper.  Today he is fully trained through Masters, steady to shot, shot to fall, retrieve to the hand, whoa broke, and honors his bracemate.

Foster Program

Why we foster

The #1 reason why we use foster families is because we believe every dog deserves to be a valued family member.  Our dogs that reside with us have the full run of the backyard, live in the house, sleep in the house at night and we have 1 very large dog run that extends the entire length of our backyard for when the daycare babies play outside or if a bitch is in season.  We do not own outdoor kennels that dogs reside in.  The foster family situation gives every dog the opportunity to be a valued family member, spoiled couch potato/hunting partner even if they are part of a breeding program. 

We use foster families in different ways.  There are times we place an eight week old puppy with you, we still own the pup, we take the pup to dog show class, hunt tests, show him/her in the ring, reserve breeding rights, then sign the pup over to you as owners when parenting duties are finished.  In this situation there is no cost for the puppy and if the puppy goes to gun dog training there is no cost to you.  We pay for 100% of expenses for the dog other than food until he/she is signed over to you the family.  

Another way we use a family is to adopt a fully retired dam who you will own outright, no strings attached.  This dog is in perfect health, spayed, house trained, etc.  Yes, it's hard to let go of a dog who's been family to us, but if we didn't, we wouldn't be able to continue the work we do as breeders because we just wouldn't have room in our home!  

If you're interested in becoming a WAAP foster family, you must be in the Katy or surrounding area, own a house, familiar with dogs and NOT plan on moving before the foster agreement is finished.  

References are available from current WAAP foster families if you have questions about us, because we will spend a lot of time with you before we place a puppy or retired dam.   

Again, when you buy a puppy from WAAP Shorthairs, the sire and dam have never, not one day of their life lived in a kennel as a kennel dog.  They are loved family members.  The living conditions of the kennel you purchase your puppy from should be the utter most important to you and for this reason we are always an open kennel for in-home interviews.

What is a CHIC number?



The Canine Health Information Center (CHIC) is a centralized database.  Their primary purpose is to provide owners and breeders health information that will assist in breeding/buying healthy dogs.  

The CHIC program provides accurate information about the results of a breeder's health testing.  A CHIC number is issued when a breeder has satisfied each breed specific health test AND the breeder has opted to make those test results public.  

If you buy a puppy from a breeder who breeds with a health CHIC number, your breeder has complied with every health test requirement set forth by their parent club (in our case it's the German Shorthaired Pointer Club Of America).  

For example..  Cone Degeneration is a disease that causes blindness in German Shorthaired Pointers.  If you buy your puppy from a breeder who health tested for CD and results are "normal", your puppy has a zero chance of becoming blind from this disease.  

Did you know hip dysplasia is a hereditary defect?  3% of all GSPs have hip dysplasia.  Your odds of a dysplasia puppy are GREATLY reduced when you buy from a breeder who's sire and dam are OFA hips good or excellent, excellent being the highest rating by OFA.  

We cannot promise your puppy will never be sick, acquire a contagious virus or die of cancer (cancer is the #1 disease that kills GSP's).  We can promise that we will do everything possible to give you a healthy puppy, take very good care of your puppy, and test the parents for for all hereditary diseases set forth by our parent club i.e. breeding with a CHIC number.
