We bought our first Pudelpointer, Callie, in 2010. Thanks to that fuzzy, energetic, and always happy pup we have embraced the breed and thoroughly enjoy sharing the joys of the Pudelpointer with other families. We have been breeding Pudelpointers since 2013 and are currently located in Oregon. In our 7 years of breeding experience we have developed our line to preserve the characteristics and quality of this breed that we love so much. Our foremost goal is to provide outstanding dogs in the field and at home for hunters and their families. We work to pair dogs that will produce healthy, amenable, and cooperative pups that will have phenomenal performance in the field while also being calm and gentle in the house.

Websters definition of Ripsnorter is “One that is remarkable for strength, intensity, and/or excellence”. Jeff George has been a proud breeder of Pudelpointers since 2007, and has even more experience with other breeds before this. While he used to raise specifically German Wirehaired Pointers under the Ripsnorter prefix, he branched out to the more versatile side of them and fell in love with his first Pudelpointer, Okra.
Jeff has tested many dogs in NAVHDA through the years in the Natural Ability, Utility, and Versatile Champion test, many receiving Prize I ranking scores. He has brought his love for hunting to his grandchildren as well, who have both tested dogs in NAVHDA, and his grandaughter, Hadley, is now helping to take over the legacy of Ripsnorter Kennel. We are members of and proud approved breeders of the North American Pudelpointer Society, as it is the most dignified and prestigious system for top quality Pudelpointers and their according breeders.

Located in Grand Rapids, Michigan, True North Kennels is NAVHDA registered. In addition to our Pudelpointers, we are actively engaged in raising service dogs, raising 10 puppies and whelping 30 future service dogs.
The foundation of True North Kennels is Juniper Creeks Efia. Fia was whelped on September 1, 2016. She is brown with a medium dense, medium harsh coat. Her hips and eyes have been evaluated by OFA and deemed good. In August 2017, Fia tested NAVHDA’s Natural Ability test and scored 112, prize I.
Nine pups in our A litter were whelped in March 2019. Sired by Ripsnorter’s Gustav Olaf Bojangles (NA 112, UT189 II), the litter has been exceptional!
We anticipate another breeding to occur later this year.
