Brushy Mountain Shorthairs is a farm and kennel located in the foothills of Western North Carolina. It is owned and operated by Ron Gaddy who has owned, bred and hunted AKC registered German Shorthaired Pointers since 1966.
" A versatile hunter and all-purpose gun dog, the German Shorthaired Pointer
possesses keen scenting power and high intelligence. The breed is proficient
with many different types of game and sport, including trailing, retrieving, and
pointing pheasant, quail, grouse, waterfowl, raccoons, possum, and even deer."



The German Shorthaired Pointers at our farm are bred to perform in the field and to maintain the conformation and temperament that are unique to this breed. Not only are Shorthairs versatile hunters, they make excellent companions as well. Most are patient around children and make loyal family pets.

German Shorthairs are a dog that requires regular exercise and anyone considering this breed should have the space and the time to exercise them daily!
