Spring '21 Litter Plans! - Currently All Reserved pending Callie x Rocco litter
Thanks to our wonderful customers, many becoming friends, we continue to get referrals and people wanting to secure their first-class companion gundog from CrossPoint Kennel. We carefully plan each breeding - looking for the best overall combination of temperament and performance, while also helping us build legacy bloodlines that we hope to cultivate for many years to come.
Bonnie x Rocco I plan to finish Bonnie's Master Hunter title this coming fall. She should be ready to breed again in March '21. She has proven to be an outstanding mother during her first litter with Dude. My plans are to continue building on the wonderful Odyssey bloodlines, and breed her to NAGDC / DC Odyssey's Saint Rocco. Genetically, Rocco is 3/8ths Hall of Fame Sam Saint Max (DC / AFC / BISS ODYSSEY’S SAM SAINT MAX MH) - and a direct son of NAGDC / DC Odyssey's Cool-J Callen - of which I have been very impressed with the pups we have gotten out of Callen. Genetically, Bonnie is 1/8th Sam Saint Max, so the puppies from this Rocco x Bonnie litter will produce pups that are 25% HoF Sam Saint Max. This will be a classic line-breeding, not "in-breeding" - as there is substantial variety within the breeding, while building off the excellent qualities of Sam Saint Max.
Assuming Bonnie retains her natural cycle pattern, these pups should be bred in March, be born in May, and ready for new homes in July 2021. This litter will have a very heavy concentration of Dual Champions as well as National Field Champions. In the Four Generation Pedigree of Rocco x Bonnie - 80% will have a performance title, 40% will be Dual Champions (12 out of 30), and 23% (7 out of 30) will be either a National Champion or Hall of Fame GSP. These pups should be great foundation stock for anyone seeking to breed top-quality, even-tempered German Shorthaired Pointers. These pups will be $1300 each due to the lineage they represent.

Gracie x Huck Gracie (CrossPoint's Odyssey Perfect Reduxx MH) is a super nice gundog out of our Reba and NFC/GFC Odyssey's Perfect Traveler (Jon Hann's personal gundog - Charlie). Gracie is the most steady dog I have ever hunted over. Once she goes on point, her feet SIMPLY DO NOT MOVE. 100% Natural Retriever, 46 lbs. - athletically built like her dad, Charlie. Nice range, very biddable - easy to handle. She normally comes into season in February of each year - which would have pups ready for new homes in June 2021 if all goes as planned.
If all goes well, we plan to breed Gracie to FC Perfection's Huckleberry (Huck). Huck is a young dog out of Charlie and Flag. Huck has won some major field trials, and I fully expect him to be a national champion at some point in the future. Huck is very biddable, but has a big running range. Breeding Gracie to Huck should produce some outstanding bird dogs, with plenty of range, but also very biddable and easily trained. These pups will be 50% Charlie, and 25% Hall of Fame Sam Saint Max - with a nice compliment of several Hall of Fame dogs. These pups will be $1200 each.
