This GSP litter was born May 4, 2008

Sire Info: “Trooper” (Sternjager’s Weekend Warrior) is a line-bred Shooting Starr GSP and a remarkable animal that reflects the superior genetics behind his pedigree. The breeding was based on the German “mother-line” philosophy which states: The Sire of the Sire, is also the Grand-Sire of the Dam. That dog is CH Shooting Starr’s Top Gun MH NA-I/112,UT-I/193, “Gunner”. Gunner had the great balance that we strive for at STERNJAGER. He had all the desirable hunting characteristics as evidenced by his Master Hunter and Utility Prize I achievements. He also had especially correct conformation as evidenced by his AKC conformation Champion title. But Gunner was more than that as he had exceptional prepotency—the ability to stamp his offspring with all of his talents and characteristics, which is the hallmark of greatness in a stud dog. One of the many solid dogs Gunner produced was Troopers sire, VC Shooting Starr’s Son of a Gun MH,NA-II/100,UT-I/204, NSTRA CH, “Sonny” is especially noteworthy. Sonny not only exceeded Gunner in terms of achievements and titles earned, but maybe more importantly Sonny is exceeding Gunner in terms of prepotency. Sonny has sired nearly 150 NAVHDA Natural Ability pups and more than 30 Utility Prized dogs—unofficially more that any other stud. He is the #2 all time producer of AKC Master Hunters, and #7 all time producer of all hunt test titled offspring. Trooper’s dam is Shooting Starr’s Rowdy Remi NA-I/112, UT-I/199, “Rowdy”. Rowdy was a very early developing huntress, being the SIXTH CONSECTUTIVE generation to achieve the maximum score in her Natural Ability test –112 Points. In the field and marsh her performance is marked with great desire and there is no doubt in her mind that she is a predator. Rowdy’s dam, Shooting Starrs Rickster was a full litter mate to Sonny. This close line breeding will work to ensure Trooper carries on his sires and grand-sires legacy of remarkable prepotency. Generations or superior hunters will produce superior hunters. For more information on Trooper and his mother, please visit the webpage for Sternjager Kennels at Many thanks to the McMahon family for allowing us to breed our female to Trooper.

Dam info: “Remy” is my personal hunting dog. Her pedigree is very strong in Rothenuffeln and Hainholz bloodlines. She has great desire in the field and is a calm dog around the house and yard. If I had to name the one attribute I most appreciate about her, it would be her extreme biddability. She has a high internal motivation to please and when coupled with her high intelligence, this has made her a joy to hunt behind. We hunt wild pheasant and quail exclusively in Kansas and South Dakota. If my job as a Veterinarian would allow it time-wise, I have every confidence that she would have excelled in NAVHDA testing, and I believe these pups will test extremely well and more importantly, will be joys to have both in the field and at home.
Pups will have all shots, be dewormed, and had their tails and dewclaws done. Since I have 3 young children in the house, they will also be well socialized.
We are now taking reservations. For more information, including pictures of the pups, please call Dr. Matt Nichols, DVM at 785-445-3499.
