Our field springer breeding foundation began with Maia, a very strong and beautiful, Canadian bred bitch, with an incredible pedigree and practically zero faults. Since then, we have been very fortunate as the gun dogs we enjoy shooting over, have produced a National Open Guns Award Winner, a #1 US High Point Puppy, several #1 Interclub High Point Puppies, two ESSFTA Versatile Springer Awards, and a second place at a National Amateur Field Championship.
We have been members of the English Springer Spaniel Field Trial Association since 1998. As dedicated stewards of this talented and versatile breed, we place importance on maintaining the intense hunting instincts we love to shoot over and the biddable, easy to train temperaments we love to live with. We are very proud that Hellfire gundogs compete in the field as well as companion dog events like obedience, agility and tracking. In addition to Field Championships and numerous Master Hunter titles, Hellfire field springers have also won Obedience High in Trial, Rally High Combined, and Versatile Companion Dog awards. We especially love a versatile field springer that is smart, sound, and trainable enough to do it all!
We usually have 1-2, very well bred, litters a year. Occasionally we have an available youngster for sale or retired adult for adoption.
Cheetah was my most beloved springer EVER - I adored her. She had the quickest, hardest flush I've ever seen on any springer. She even trapped a few wild birds on the ground. Her marking was impressive. I miss her every day.
Ruby Roobster was a full sibling to FC AFC CFC Hellfires Fast Track MH CD AXJ MX VS, (Maia MH X FC AFC Chaps) and lived up to Hellfire affix in every way. She was a tireless worker, off the chart drive, super pretty, tough as nails.
