Welcome to the German Shorthair Pointer (GSP) Breed. The GSP was developed in Germany in the late 1800's to be an all-purpose dog. It was the original intent of the breeders to develop a breed of dog with inbred instinct for multiple tasks, thus requiring little time to "force train". The GSP was bred to point, retrieve, trail wounded game, hunt both large and small game, furred and feathered and to work in low or heavy cover as well as water. The dog was also intended to be a family companion good with both adults and children.
We're more than Champion dogs. We're the dog's champion.
Christine and Chris Bach of Fox Hill are a small hobby kennel located in Northbridge Massachusetts where their dogs are active members of their home first and foremost. They compete in AKC breed competition and hunt tests as well as spending the fall out hunting with their German Shorthaired Pointers.
We enjoy our dogs and do only limited breeding. We are active in Conformation, Hunt Testing, Agility, Obedience, Rally, and Tracking, and believe all of these venues can provide information to the breeder. We also believe in health testing and conduct Hips (OFA), Elbows (OFA), Heart (OFA - Specialist), Thyroid (OFA), CERF, and Cone Degeneration (Optigen) tests prior to breeding. Our goal is to better the breed with selective occasional breeding where specimens adhere to the standard and demonstrate natural instinct and capabilities expected from the GSP. Our dogs are our pets first and foremost, and are treasured members of our household. We look for similar views in those we breed with and the homes we place our puppies in. We are both Judges for various formats in the AKC and are active in our local breed, performance, and all-breed clubs. — Karen Rooks Nauer and David J. Nauer
