Litters and Puppies


I typically have one, maybe two, litters a year from my personal gun dogs.  I select sires based on what I feel is the best match to complement my female and help me to meet my goals for my breeding program.  I travel as far as needed to breed to the sire that offers the best match: sires must meet the same requirements as my females in that they must be impressive on wild birds, have a sound, calm temperament and OFA clearance.  I do not do any breedings just to have puppies and I sell only to hunting – companion homes that will offer wild bird hunting opportunities to their pup.  My puppy buyers usually want a pup from a specific litter and are willing to wait: as a result my litters are typically spoken for before they are born, often before the breeding even takes place.




Firelight is pleased to mentor Old Stonewall Setters of NY with their first litter.  Firelight Mabel is a classic Firelight: very good grouse dog, beautiful tri, family companion, 50 lbs, OFA.  She was outcrossed to a moderately sized, handsome, well-proven grouse dog. Mabel had 11 puppies on March 16, 2024.
3/29/24 We have one male puppy available to a wild bird hunting, companion home.

10/12/23:  I am planning two breedings for 2024.

The first litter is with “Pocket”, the litter due late 2024.  Pocket is a daughter of my Annie and is from the very successful outcross of Annie to a CH Llewellin.  Pocket is built a little more compact than my other girls but still weighs almost 50 lbs. Around the house she is playful but is also one of the most devoted-to-me dogs to me that I have ever had. Evenings find her jockeying for the end sofa spot that will allow her to lay with her paw on my knee as I sit in my reading chair.  When hunting she maintains an easy range, requiring little to no handling, yet she is fun to watch as she is fast and animated in her hunt.  Her point style is intense, at times frozen in position if she hits scent suddenly but usually standing tall with high head and tail.  She loves to retrieve and enjoys swimming.     The sire I have chosen for her is a Firelight male, Quest.  A handsome male of 57 lbs, devoted to the families grandbabies but in the field has strong drive and excellent stamina. He loves their trips west where he efficiently stretches his range and covers ground.  He shows nice style and intensity on point. Both dogs are OFA Good, colors produced will most likely be tri’s and b/w.

The second litter planned will be with Firelight Kyah.  Kyah is a beautiful, 50 lb blk/wht daughter of my Annie but her sire is Firelight Tip. OFA Good/normal.  She hunts grouse and woodcock 70+ days a season.  Her career started when she was 5 months old and she developed early and at 2 yrs hunts and handles like a veteran with a strong natural retrieve. She is calm and gentle in the home. The first photo is not a great photo but I love that it is of Kyah at 5 months “assisting” her grandmother Sally retrieve a grouse, the video is Kyah retrieving this season.   The sire chosen for Kyah is an exciting young tri-color Llewellin from good old Llewellin bloodlines who was precocious in the field with a strong hunt and stylish point. I am looking for Ike to add a little leg, strong nose and higher style to the litter.  OFA prelim was Good (he is not quite 2 yet for final)
