Liver Colored German Shorthaired Pointer Puppies

This litter was the result of us rescuing a very sweet purebred male German Shorthaired Pointer that was malnourished and mistreated. I can't believe people can treat animals like that! Within three minutes of entering our yard he was locked up on my boyfriends five year old purebred female German Shorthaired Pointer that had never had pups. We didn't think he could even mount her he was so skinny and weak. Because of this we changed his name form 'Eddie' to 'Fast Eddie'. :) He has gained 12 pounds since coming to our home in April and his 'kennel syndrome' (constant pacing back and forth due to being kept in a 6' by 8' enclosure) is almost gone. We are still working on his 'hand shyness' from being beaten. He is sweet and loving and just wants to please, point birds, chase squirrels and play fetch or with my boyfriends 3 other adult dogs or the puppies. He might be up for adoption too, but he is such a sweet, easy to train and smart dog we may train him to be a search and rescue dog too.
The puppies mother comes from champion field trial lines ( her mother a five time champion and father a three time champion) their father comes from show/hunting lines. The parents of these puppies and the grand mother (my boyfriends cousin's dog) and grand father on the mom's side are all 'liver with some ticking'; and I am sure there are more in both of the parents ancestors. I have not had the time to research lineage yet, but I will. This many solid colored pups in one litter is extreamly rare (11 out of 12 'solid liver') from what the vet said and I have read ( 'one chance in millions'). From what I can gather this is because the original wild dogs they domesticated were 'solid liver with some ticking'.
The pups are very cute, alert and sweet and easy to handle and train since they were bottle fed every two hours for five weeks because their mom was not making enough milk for them all. They have had their first and second round of shots. They are walking on a leash, been started and know what "NO" , "SIT", "OUT", "GO", "COME", "LOOK OUT", "DOWN", "DROP IT" "FIND IT" and "SMELL IT" mean. They are all very attracted to anything that flies or moves, are pointing, some are holding the point and some are honoring the other pups and adults points, some are even retrieving. They are paper and house trained, have been de-wormed even though there was no sign of them, the vet recommended it. We also have a free stool sample bottle for a free worm test and Spectra heart worm and flea preventative for each one too. It's an internal medicine not that stinky oily stuff you put on them.
The puppies are twelve weeks old now. Some people say you can adopt them out at eight weeks, but from what I have read and been told by the vet, ten to twelve weeks is best so that they are completely and properly socialized. Meaning they know doggie body language, greetings, warnings and establishing dominance so that there is no starting fights with every dog they meet when you are out with them. The vet said these puppies are awesome since they are getting to socialize with their siblings and our four adult dogs.
The one spotted female has gone to her new home. There are four rare solid 'liver' brown with some 'ticking' on chests and feet and two extreamly rare 'cinnimons' with just a tiny white spot on their chests and a couple of toes. There are three males and three females left.
These dogs typically don't have the skin, hip or health issues that other popular breeds have and they live a really long time. My boyfriend had one that lived to 17 1/2 years and another til she was 21 years old, so please consider that too.
The 'livers' are $600, the cinnamons are $750 If you or you and a friend or family member take two you will get a $100 break. We could probably get a lot more for these pups considering the blood lines, but we will be happy if we can just find them all good homes and recoup all of the unexpected costs associated with just the puppies, We didn't realize how expensive it could be if there were complications like a large litter, puppy formula and bottles, plus their shots, worming, heartworm and flea preventatives, docking the tails and removing the dew claws, ect., ect. ...
The puppies are to young to be fixed yet at just under three months. My vet reccomends six to twelve months.
