INDIANA Jones, Dr. Jones when he is in trouble. Indy earned his name from all the dangerous stunts he pulled on us as an 8-week-old puppy, without getting hurt even once. No matter what the season he’s wet from being in water and catching balls, which he hockey kicks back to you. He adores and loves playing with his puppies. They are the only ones he will ever give up his ball to. He has a perfect sweet disposition no matter what any of the girls do to him. His coat is a beautiful thick brown with beautiful white markings. He’s an absolute wonderful joy and fun guy to be around.
We are proud to have Princess continuing our fantastic DE Gifford bloodlines. Famous Sea Dog De Gifford Anjo Branco (our white angel) is Princess’s mom, and Indy is her dad.
She’s super agile, very athletic, always on a hunt, and after being a bold little puppy, she turned into a super sweetie pie, and a super mom. Princess and Pirate had many adventures the first year of their lives – and now she is as sweet and mature as she could be.
The Dread Pirate Roberts and her are like a tag team running around the farm and new Malt House in Butler all day until their little masters get home from school to play with them.
Miss Emma is a beautiful brown and white wavy with the prettiest amber eyes. She loves to have a job and takes it very seriously. Whether it is watching over her people, greeting customers at work, tracking deer with her boy or chasing a ball, she does it with her whole heart and with complete dedication. When she’s not playing with the other dogs, you can find her sleeping on her back with all four paws in the air. Thor was her Grandfather.
Miley is a spark of energy that brings a smile to everyone’s face. She is a chip off the old block. Her mom, Issy, whose mom was our special Violet and our very first PWD.
Miley’s strength, endurance and agility amaze everyone that meets her. She is always looking for a friend to play with and always greets you with a wagging tail. She is super smart and an absolute sweetheart except when in comes to tormenting poor Mowgli, her best friend and lover!
Bandit’s mom is our beautiful Pure White Bronco and the wonderful Dread Pirate Roberts. She is the most lovable, smart and athletic dog you have ever seen. She loves hunting like her mom. Her favorite sports are swimming, paddle boarding and running. She doesn’t have a bad bone in her body.
Born on our farm with Beautiful Diabolo her mom. She looks just like her mom and has a wonderful happy attitude every minute of every day. She truly believes every second of your life should be nothing but fun. She has done more damage here having FUN then all our other dogs as puppies put together. If it is missing, broken, or torn you need only look as far as Mattie. She always behaves as if nothing has happened, no matter what has happened. She pulls Indy’s ear down and dunks his face into the water when they are swimming together and loves to bite his back legs when he is running. It has made him a very fast runner!
Sailor’s mom went from France to Portugal to get bred at the De Grifford Kennels. She is extremely happy and loves to smile. First thing when I get up in the morning or when she knows she is doing something wrong and you say no, no she shows you all her teeth accompanied with a funny sort of dance in a circle while she is doing it. She is a solid black thick wavy with a beautiful face. We call her and Diabolo the twins. Sailor will cross any barriers to stay faithfully at your side.
Ms. Violet was our first PWD and definitely sold us on the breed from the first day she came into our lives. Retired and my constant companion for over 15 years now, Violet is total show quality, always prancing with perfect form, curled tail and agility. Between 3 months & 4 months old she learned 35 tricks. Then she went on to excel in tracking. She proved to learn faster and better then our private Iraq military K-9 trainer had ever seen. She impressed the heck out of him & us with the breed’s fast learning ability. She can jump over any fence or get in or out of any house. As a result she is my constant companion and enjoys traveling everywhere. She is an incredible dog instructor herself. We have witnessed her taking her pups to various places in our woods and having them find their way home individually.
Sandie and Indiana are always in competition for a ball no matter how long or how many times you throw it. She is a smart as she is loving. Quite a talker just like dear old dad Thor. Wonderful bloodlines for temperment and true to standard PWD. Great swimmer and super athletic. Sandy was always a wonderful mom!
Bella was born right here on our farm. She is one of our rare white/ivory porties with the white recessive genes. She is our squirrel, rabbit, pheasant & duck hunter. Bella is wonderful and very caring, especially for the young new puppies. She loves being at my husband’s side all day long when he is out in the woods.
Her and Indy’s little gal Eclipse in France, pictured below when we delivered her there, has won championships throughout Europe!
Our sweetheart Scarlett – or I should say Katie Scarlett O’Carroll, born in Colorado with Erma and Thor stud muffin being her parents. She is a true black PWD, with just a small white little star on her chest, beautiful black eyes, a great sweet personality as well as a great swimmer. She never gets tired of hiking, swimming or retrieving all day long as well as getting in trouble every now and then with her best friend Indiana Jones. She is the most talkative of our dogs, and wins the hearts of every person that meets her. Bonnie Blue at our Nicholson location will carry on her DeGifford blood lines.
