The Scotia Kennel is proud to announce Three litters out of or sired by our dogs in 2023!
We are incredibly excited to announce that 10 years of planning and more than a quarter century of blood, sweat, and tears have finally come to fruition! The TiMI x Journey litter is confirmed!!! Combining the genetics of many, if not most, of the successful and influential dual-purpose dogs in the breed in the last 30 years, this old and valuable pedigree is strong in temperament, hunting ability, structure, and coat. The puppies will be whelped and raised by Riley Mars in Iowa.
Since this may not be a huge litter, we also recommend the following litters sired by Scotiadawgs around the country:
Contact Krista Rutmanis or Hilde Stapgens for this beautiful uncle x niece line breeding that concentrates the Cascade influence in the pedigree. Fantastic temperaments, structure, and natural instincts will be expected in this litter whelped and raised by Krista in Colorado. Learn More

Are German Wirehaired Pointers Good with Other Pets?
GWPs have a strong prey drive and don't cohabit peacefully with other animals, including dogs, cats, rabbits, and hamsters. Socialization from an early age may help them accept cats and dogs as part of the family. The breed is known to be aggressive with strange dogs, especially of the same sex.
Are German Wirehaired Pointers Good with Kids?
GWPs have a lot of energy and should be supervised closely around young children so they don't knock them down accidentally. They are generally tolerant of kids in their own family, as long as they have grown up alongside them. Socializing German Wirehaired Pointers to be calm around children is important.
(Note: Every dog has a unique personality and distinct life experiences that affect his disposition. As a rule, adults should always supervise playdates between kids and their four-legged friends.)
Do German Wirehaired Pointers Swim?
With their webbed feet and water-resistant coats, German Wirehaired pointers were made for the water. They are excellent swimmers and one of their favorite activities is jumping into the water to retrieve a dog toy or stick.
Are German Wirehaired Pointers Good Waterfowl Dogs?
German Wirehaired Pointers are excellent waterfowl hunting dogs. They are versatile gundogs, however, and make adept upland hunting partners as well.
Are German Wirehaired Pointers Hypoallergenic?
No. While GWPs shed lightly, they do shed consistently year-round. As a result, they leave pet dander in your home, the most common cause of pet-related allergies.
