Exceptionally Versatile German Shorthaired Pointers

Building On A Solid Foundation Of Proven Performers


Our breeding program strives to produce early-maturing, biddable dogs that develop into dependable hunting companions and strong hunt test prospects. Scarecrow dogs' pedigrees document a long history of selective pairings of many outstanding representatives within some of the finest American and German bloodlines.

Scarecrow Kennel has been producing quality German shorthaired pointers since 2005. Our foundation dam, VC Sharp Shooters Megun v. Lacy, was the product of two phenomenally successful kennels: Briemoor Kennel, owned by Jean Strandlund in Rice Lake, Wisconsin, and nearby Sharp Shooters Kennel of New Richmond, owned by Clyde and Marilyn Vetter. Megun and her daughter Raven both attained NAVHDA Versatile Champion titles, and their offspring have continued a tradition of stylish performance in the field and water. The kennel's 5 litters posted strong results in NAVHDA's testing program, qualifying for 4 NA Breeder Awards, 1 Utility Breeder Award, and 1 Invitational Breeder Award.
Today's hunter needs a dog with stamina, drive and adaptability to get the job done under demanding conditions. Between hunts, your companion should be a calm and welcome addition to your family. Scarecrow shorthairs have desire; they have ground speed, they handle birds with style, and they are strong retrievers on land and in the water.  Our dogs produce consistently in a wide range of upland habitats, from the dry deserts of the West to the vast grasslands of the heartland, and New England's dense forests - and they love the marsh. These formidable hunters also thrive in the home, and their zest for life is contagious!
