German Shorthaired Pointers

Autumn Oaks Farm & Kennel

Autumn Oaks Farm is a small family owned farm in North Central Missouril.  We specialize in German Shorthair Pointers and only German Shorthair Pointers.  Our German Shorthairs are part of our family, they are raised and socialized for the highest level of personal companionship, hunting quality and conformation.  Established in 2006 and formally recognized in 2009 we continue to grow our reputation as a small family owned and operated farm.  Our foundation has been established with our two males ICH/CH Scout Silverblade Brown JH (Scout) and BIS/ICH/CH Bleugras Brown Hearts on Fire (Blade).  Two very dynamic styles of the same breed.

BIS GCH/ICH Bleugras Brown Hearts on Fire "Blade"
It is great sorrow I have to announce the passing of Blade.  He was proudly shown by Jim Brown and Patty Hoffman.  We had 9 short years with this young man before he passed from complications with Cushings disease.  With a Best of show at the International All Breed Show in Grey Summit.  A top 25 German Shorthair Pointer with a placement at the number nine spot and a Best of Opposite Sex at the Eukanuba  Nationals we could not be prouder of his accomplishments in the ring.  At home he was a lovable goof ball and a loyal companion who loved the company of his family and friends.  He will be missed by all who knew him.
German Shorthaired Pointer Pedigree
 Pedigree database is back on-line and functional.  There is some on-going cleanup going where we have some past images that are missing.  All of the code functionality is working properly.  The only other known issue.  We are seeing anomalies (timeout issue) if you run pedigrees with more than 6 generations.  

If there are any updates or additional pedigrees you would like added please contact us through e-mail.  This is a web-based version of the off-line GSP database that I continue to work on.  We currently have over 27,000 individual pedigrees listed in the database.

We will be making addition improvements to the code over the next few weeks and months. Currently you have these options.

Pedigree without links, this is a standard pedigree format.

Scout Finishes JH Title
Joplin and Wright City, Missouri.  Over the last two weekends Scout finished 4 of 4 legs for his JH.   With four qualifying scores we are just waiting for the official confirmation from the AKC.

Thank to the Gateway Vizsla Club for hosting the event at the Missouri Gun and Quail Club.  Managed to catch up with some folks I have not seen in awhile and met some new folks along the way.

Welcome to the German Shorthair Pointer (GSP) Breed known by it's German Name of "Deutsch Kurzhaar". The GSP was developed in Germany in the late 1800's to be an all-purpose dog. In the early days the origination of The German Shorthaired Pointer as a breed can be specifically tracked back to 1872 with the first original Pedigree registration of HEKTOR I. The one thing the early breeders were in agreement on was the "utility" of the breed. The specifically wanted a dog that was as comfortable in the field as it was in the water This was the turn of the century, the beginning of the industrial revolution and middle class society was being developed. As such hunting dogs had been the luxury of wealth families but that trend was changing. The first German Shorthaired Pointer was imported in the United States in 1925 by Dr.B.C. Thorton. Reading an article written in the book "German Shorthaired Pointer Activities" published in 1953 Dr. Thorton's tells a number of stories about these early German Shorthaired Pointers. One thing is clear both from the pictures and the text the breed we see today has withstood the test of time.
