Kiroden GSPs is a new kennel with an old idea - breeding to the standard. It is my desire to establish
a line that will evoke the thought - "Now that is what a German Shorthaired Pointer is supposed to look like."
Starting with a healthy, sound foundation, I hope to produce the best of what a GSP can be - balanced, correct,
of proper size and, perhaps most significantly, possessing an abundance of breed type.
Moderation is a primary
driver - moderate of bone, moderate of angle. The breed's roots are those of a close-hunting, walking gun dog...therefore
a medium-sized dog close to 25" that is short of back is my model dog. The torso will be sturdy, with a longer
ribcage and a short, strong loin. This will enable the hunting dog to discharge its duties in the field well into
its later years, and allow brood bitches to readily bring beautiful new babies into the world.
in conformation and movement will be avoided.....breed type and correctness will take precedence over win records.
Temperament and health will be key characteristics. A biddable dog, with an aristocratic look to reflect alertness
and animation, will exemplify a GSP that is true to type.
It will be a long journey over multiple breedings
and through several generations. I hope you'll join me.
