Welcome to The Scotia Kennel

The Scotia Kennel is a breeder of German Wirehaired Pointers. As our name implies, The Scotia Kennel was named after our family heritage, my mother was almost entirely Scottish, and my father’s family emigrated from England to Nova Scotia, which means, “New Scotland” in Latin. Our Scotiadawgs are born and raised in Oregon, in a loving environment with affection and boundaries.
